  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Double distilled spirit - to my mind this whisky has got slightly bored and given up trying.

    I wouldn't rush to get loads of this.
    • Nose
      81 81
      If smells were colour, this would be yellow. Hay notes.
    • Taste
      80 80
      More a sensation than a taste - first impression is wet, with some taste coming in late - light with a touch of gentle spice.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Short.

  2. HokkaidoUni scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Feels too young
    • Nose
      82 82
      Nose: cardboard, paper and dry sauna wood. Pine? Butter, hay and daisies or dandelions. Unripe mango. Green banana peel. Yellow cake frosting. Something sour. Some char and brambles with water.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Palate: chalk, safflower oil, unripe citrus. With water it gets a little hotter and a little more floral
    • Finish
      80 80
      Finish: vanilla and lime rinds, some chalk. More floral and bitter with water. Daisies.

  3. TomAndIngrid scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Starts promising and ends sad.
    • Nose
      83 83
      First malty, then nice and nutty.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Here, too, the malt note dominates at the beginning, then nutty and roasted aromas are added before the alcohol comes through and takes everything down.
    • Finish
      75 75
      Lively and astringent.

  4. ahroeen scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Not massively complex, but a decent dram. Refill casks? Spirit-forward. Fruity and oily. A good everyday sipper.
