    Not good, not terrible, too simple

  3. TomHagen scored this whisky 74 points Expert Junior

    Compared to Glen Turner Heritage, the alcohol is more noticeable (both in smell and taste), and less sweet. Not complicated, but tasty at the same time. Good whisky for everyday dram: clean, with ice or in a mixer.

  4. Rheinlaender scored this whisky 65 points Member Junior

    Nose: light sweetness, some grain

    Taste: Cereals, some ripe fruit

    Finish: short with some wood

    It's really nice for mixing. You can drink it neat, but you can only enjoy it to a limited extent. A couple of ice cubes won't hurt him.

    Simple single malt, which was probably mostly matured in ex-bourbon barrels.
    • Nose
      Malty, sweet, caramel, toffee, honey
    • Taste
      Vanilla, toffee, oak, sweetness, you can taste a clear bourbon influence
    • Finish
      very short finish

    Fantastic whisky for so little money (€ 20).
    Lots of sweets and fruit give this whisky a "dessert whisky", the alcohol perceptible in the aroma, completely disappears in the further part of the tasting.
    This is my next whisky in this series and as soon as I see the bottom of the bottle, I start thinking about buying another one.
    A wonderful and quite attractive drink for people who are starting their adventure with the "world of whisky". I recommend it !!!

  8. Malthead19 scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    - a very tasty, sweet 12 year single malt
    - not a great depth, quickly gone, but okay
    delicious ... the bottle can be empty quickly ...
    - Not expensive at around € 25 and quite good for the price
    • Nose
      malty, sweet, caramel, toffee, honey
    • Taste
      a lot of vanilla, toffee, oak, sweetness, you can taste a clear bourbon influence
    • Finish
      very short finish; hardly any echo
