Nose:- Roasted barley like a stout. Honey drifting with hint of tobacco and floral.

Palate:- Bourbon characters, juicy plum and sweet, lightly spice and fresh oak, sawdust. Slightly raw.

Finish:- Short-medium, lack depth, restrainted. Still quite smooth and fade away with some cocoa.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Defeatless gave this whisky 72 points

Nose:
Fruity, pear, hint of mint, eucalyptus, canned pineapple, a chemical fruit-toffee note. Liquorish and more tropical fruit. Butterscotch (zeeuwse roomboter babbelaars for those who are Dutch)

Taste: 
Sweet (rum like), toffee, canned tropical fruit, sugar. a bit of an alcohol bite. Touch of sweet and sour and a hint of bitterness after a few seconds. And some butterscotch had the overall taste.

Body:
not much, just a bit oily.

Finish:
short. Some sweetness, hint of wood and some toffee.

Price:
Not too bad.

Pesentation:
a bit overrated for this quality.

Comments:
I think it isn't as bad as written over here. I had the 700ml version for european market. I think it is just a bit too sugar-sweet.

When you add a little water it transforms to the better.

The first time i´ve tasted this one i wasn´t blewn away but thought it was okay. Since the bottle was open it became worse and worse... Tried it several times and i just had to throw away the last dram, i couldn´t stand it anymore, even thought it is not my principle to waste food or even worse; alcohol. I think the cardboard packaging with the small imitation-silk inlay tastes better...

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Banana-nut to the fore, then a bizarre agglomeration of toast, honey, floral/perfume, dull soap and some grassiness.

Taste

Oily and mouth coating. Mildly sour, balanced by toasted cereals, honey-flower, green apple, and some mild ginger. It is astringent at first, but this mellows with the addition of water.

Finish

Sharp and long, with initial cereal notes transitioning to sourness and spice.

Comments

One to avoid.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Fruity, citrus, malty, sligthly floral, earthy and straw like

Taste

Soft, sweet and malty

Finish

Gentle, light and short

Comments

Very young and slightly to weak. This malt tends to fade away after two hours in the glas. There's hardly any aroma or flavor left in the glass.
