  1. Whisky.Hedonist.MY scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nothing too fancy, just beyond acceptable.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Good beginner. The nose is great, then the wood is almost a bit too dominant, the fruits could have had more say.
    • Nose
      Fruity, jelly pear, pineapple, almost tropical, with a little oak. Sweet, but successful.
    • Taste
      Mild & round. First comes a barrage of oak, then the fruity flavors set, while then again the nutty oak takes over the word.
    • Finish
      Bittersweet, relatively much wood, nice nutty finish.

  5. Falnor scored this whisky 69 points Connoisseur

    A bit bigger and better than the 10. However the price increases too. There are better options in this price class.
    • Nose
      Honey, soft, very easy opening, baked apple.
    • Taste
      Cake, cream, honey and chocolate chip cookies, a little sherry gives some raisins.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, spices like ginger, short
