  1. voodoochile scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A nice beginners Whisky. Not too much aroma and overall not to complex. Something to lead someone to whisky without overwhelming that person. Don't expect too much of it but don't unerestimate it either.

  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Pleasantly creamy if a little dry, slight lemon and grapefruit notes with a faint hint of smoke , the problem is it is undemanding and boring so a MOTR score.
