  1. gman4405 scored this whisky 65 points Expert Junior

    Lightest tasting whisky of any kind I have ever had. Extremely light and flavor profile to go with it. Great whisky to introduce Scotch to people who do not like whisky.

  2. Vince scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Very (lower) middle of the road. Nose reveals little, on the mouth. Typical vanilla and young oak mix found in more "modern" whiskies. A little bitter with some notes leaning towards cheap plastics with otherwise a flat palate and short finish. Water does not help by itself; maybe good for mixing, although already quite under-powered. Seem to be two versions of this cask. I tried this DEC 2020.

    Amazing what prices whiskies like this command these days (EUR110 at time of writing note). I honestly would hesitate to shell out EUR20 for this. Reinforces the concept as status rather than enjoyment drink and the notion that bottlers can put any piss in a bottle with an age statement (which I thought was not supposed to matter now) & single malt/single cask label and charge EUR100 for it. It is a pretty condescending view by the industry of their customers in cases.

    Beware there are far better alternatives available at price and my recommendation is, if at all possible, taste before you buy. There are a lot of pretender bottles out there from lower grade distilleries, often with impressive age statements and astronomic prices (somehow meant to convey the impression of quality) that are actually very poor quality. There are a few exceptions, which are an absolute joy to discover, but these are rare indeed.
