    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.

    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.

  7. schengel10 scored this whisky 71 points Connoisseur

    A simple decent Speyside Malt - but the slightly more expensive Double Cask offers a lot more!
    • Nose
      malty, fruity (apricot), fine spiciness;
    • Taste
      pleasant gentle onset, very mild, malt, oranges, sweet sherry, on the palate slightly woody, pleasant spiciness, oak;
    • Finish
      mild medium-long finish; something oak sounds;

    Lots of fruit and sherry. Maybe a little too soft.
