  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted this one blindly and I must admit I’m surprised by the outcome. I guessed this one at 46%-50% ABV and a little older.
    • Nose
      I get a lot of refill notes, soft spices, oak, apple peel, chalk candy, anise and licorice. Pleasant nose
    • Taste
      Oily texture, smooth and good balance. Orange fruits, nutmeg, ouzo and mediterranean spices. Pleasant and accessible but also tasteful and decently bodied.
    • Finish
      medium length, younger hints of barley. Again tropical fruits and also that ouzo like anise background. Pleasant sipper that earns more appreciation if you ask me.

  3. tangtang scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    would describe this malt as a good entry-level whisky. Round and soft
    • Nose
      malty, fruity with strawberries, vanilla, orange, very slightly spicy, very soft
    • Taste
      spicy malty sweet with citrus fruits, light sherry notes, slightly nutty in the background, slightly bitter towards the end.
    • Finish
      briefly some fruit, malt and nuts, then becoming bitter. Soft and short

    Very pleasant malt, which despite only 40% vol. brings some flavors. Well suited as a start and for beginners

    Simple dram, nose shows promise, but low abv and lack of complexity make this “ok” whisky.

      Short. Oaky drying, decent heat

  10. Abadon05 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    For the price you can not expect much and that comes over so well. A dominant orange note. I like the echoes of Christmas punch in combination with the sweetness.
    The dryness in the finish but then costs points.
    Nevertheless, he offers for the price of a good Brennereininblick or insight into the Speyside.

      Little. Some leather, tobacco, some lemon and a spicy orange. What surprised is an alcoholic stinging.
      The orange dominates after some time massive and shows with some cinnamon Christmas flavors. After some time, the alcoholic stinging goes back, which brings him just to the 80 points.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Nice sweet, but strongly reminds of Christmas punch. A light tingle on the tongue. That's it. I like the sweetness, but it is not complex. A little green apple can be recognized in the background and reminds me of the apple rings of Trolli.
    • Finish
      74 74
      The sweetness is still there, but not so strong anymore. Short to medium length finish. The orange continues to dominate, but now comes a dryness, as well as some lemon.
