  1. Rody024 scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Characterful daily dram it is. Compact in flavour, a bit of water helps. The intensity matches the ABV, but is not quite in harmony with its flavours.

      Hay, almonds, vanilla, citrus.

      Quite thin and watery mouthfeel but it carries a lot of punch.

      Caramel, vanilla, orange and some oaky spiciness.

      5-10 seconds.
      Some complexity can be found with tones of toffee and oak.

    This taste like cheap whisky, just for an expensive price.
    You get the alcohol taste nothing else.

    Tullamore dew, irish whiskey is a lot better, also strait from the flask, without making cocktails with it.

    The smell is nice though :-)

  6. wizzkey scored this whisky 60 points Member Junior

    hard burn of alcohol, one dimensional, bitter wood taste.
    BAD VFM

  7. SAND scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    3:1 corn to malt ratio, 60-70 casks per batch. Aged 5-6 years. Finished in rum casks (anywhere from 6m to 3 years)
    NOSE: Rather fruity with yellow plums and orchard fruits, hints of mango and papaya. Light maltiness, wheat grain spirit elements. (84p).
    TASTE: Fruity arrival (yellow fruits). Rather fruity on the mid palate as well, with a nice fruity acidity and some astringency. surprisingly rich mouthfeel, slightly waxy/oily (84p).
    FINISH: Still fruity, a moderate and nice presence of acidity and astringency (82p).
    OVERALL: Fruity and quite harmonious. Total score 83 points.

    • Nose
      Caramelised pineapple. Vanilla. Sweet raisins, but also a hint of bananas. Caramel fudge and toffee. Lemons in the background.
    • Taste
      Pineapples. Sweet raisins. Milk chocolate and toffee. A hint of Bananas. Some spices, such as black pepper, cinnamon and ginger.
    • Finish
      Mid-long to long with ginger and black pepper.

  10. robbert88 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Raisins, rum, fruity. And a smell that most reminded me of the cocoa factory in Zaandam.
    • Taste
      Spicy, dried fruit, wood
    • Finish
      Longer than the single grain. Woody taste with tannins of wood and spices.

  11. thijs100 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      A definite step up from the single grain. It's fruity, bright, light and with a hint of sauternes. Apple juice, pineapple, apricots and raisins. Really good.
    • Taste
      Creamy and fairly fruity (pineapple and apricots again), but certainly also that cough syrup-y note the single grain also displayed. Plenty spicy too with touches of ginger, but mostly balanced out by sweeter caramel notes and brown sugar.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices and a soft sweetness.
