  2. 2ndSip scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    fruity and sweet on the nose - that's all you can really get out of the nose. Somewhat spicy in the taste, whereby the fruit aromas can also be found again, especially the light fruity notes.
    With a dark chocolate it disappears quickly.
    Fruity standard without great complexity - "EveryDayDram" whisky, without corners and edges, almost anything, but with a nice dark chocolate when it fades away.
    [80 - 76 = 'really not bad'-whisky -> but do I need a (second) bottle?]
    • Nose
      fruity aromas of fresh apricots and plums, but at the same time it also has something of red dried fruits (dried plums).
      In addition, a slight sugar and fruit sweetness can be heard, including some honey and caramel, which become clearer with more air.
      It also gets a slightly floral sting, but that is very restrained.
    • Taste
      extremely soft start. Spice is only partially intrusive and arrives on the tongue in the form of nutmeg and a little clove.
      It then switches very quickly to a harsher note, but without drifting into bitterness.
      The second sip emphasizes fruity, but the sweetness is more restrained. The flavor still remains and with the light oak note also brings a certain dryness into play.
    • Finish
      Medium-long finish, especially with spice and some fruit as well as a tart note that turns into dark chocolate that lingers for a long time.
      Is getting drier.
