  1. LoverCop1989 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Gate number 22 of my Tastillery advent calendar. Very interesting. Great harmony of fruity sweetness and spicy herbs. However, a tad too monotonous for the assessed price. Still nice balance. Anyone who likes something fruity will definitely not be unhappy here.

      very spicy, a lot of oak, malty, some herbs, some smoke, slightly weaker sweet fruit note than the taste, a hint of mint

    Quite tasty, but absolutely average. And kind of boring.

    Overall, LoverCop1989 describes my impressions quite aptly.

    Concise for me - especially in the nose - the pear, light and sweet. Sweet in the mouth too, a hint of green herbs, yes. Then nice tart woodiness until the pear takes over again, more ripe now, not quite as light as at the beginning. There is an extra point for this nice finish.

    Yes, very nice. But nothing that will be remembered.

  6. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Appearance: Very pale, straw golden.

    Nose: Honey, lemon, apple, vanilla, oak. Slightly peppery. Quite simple.

    Palate: Honey, caramel, vanilla, oak, spices.

    Finish: Woody and tannic with honey and vanilla and a peppery bite.

    With Water: Even sweeter with more oak and malt biscuits.

    Overall: Sweet and mellow, decent spices. Not all that interesting.
