  1. Kensay scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    attic dust, green fruits, apples. A little empty, but after standing in a glass for 40 minutes it revives a little, though not for long

  2. coldsun scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty and sweet whisky, full of flowers, candies, sweet spices and also with elements of barley malt and cucumber. It is very delicious and bold enough but requires time to be opened.

    A good summer malt. The dilution to 48% did not do it any harm.

    Light, drinkable, but not balanced. Probably worth the money. Balance 20-21

      The aroma is classic for a bourbon barrel. Lollipops, duchess, some cream, light and fresh sweetness. 21.5

      The taste is weak. One gets the impression of a strong reduction. Herb, distant sweetness. 20.5
    • Finish
      84 84
      Long enough, despite the nondescript taste. Peppermint, slightly spicy for such a strength. 21.5

    Blenders Glass.
    Simple but nice - especially considering the price.
    In the summer, in the heat - that's it.
