  1. bninkie scored this whisky 76 points Member Junior

    For me, it's probably the best standard whisky available almost everywhere for reasonable price.

    Nose: basically very light and delicate, citric, honey, peaches, dried apricots
    Taste: sweet, again honey and peaches, bananas
    Finish: chocolate, wood, cherry, caramel

  2. Wolfe Tone scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Best of the standard blends. Better than JW or Grouse.

    Not actually a bad whisky and ok for the price segment. Very smooth and pleasant with a light smoky note.
    Not very complex, otherwise.
    The bottle has a screw top that is designed to fake a cork.
    • Nose
      72 72
      fresh with a mint-coloured alcohol sting and an underlaying darker colour of smoke which is mostly cask char with a hint of peat.
    • Taste
      58 58
      smooth, velvety texture with woody tannines in the middle. The smoky notes from the nose are confirmed.
    • Finish
      79 79
      The darker notes prevail with a bitter-chocolate note.
      Surprisingly long lasting finish that gives a slight metallic note in the very end.
