    • Nose
      78 78
      Very light nose - reminiscent of butter biscuit with a small dash of lemon. Overall, it looks harmonious and not very complex. Only after a long sniff do I discover more citrus fruits.
    • Taste
      82 82
      In the mouth, both the biscuit taste and the light citrus aroma are confirmed. Spicy is added now and at the end of each sip the sweetness is lost in favor of some oaky bitterness. Quite interesting to try this several times. Adding water immediately brings out floral aromas and pushes the sweetness into the background. I like it better without water.
    • Finish

      The medium-long finish develops from biscuit sweetness to tart herbs and back towards shortbread.

      The nose...this whisky has no nose! Neither a lid and a pair of warm hands nor a higher room temperature helped. Well, actually there's a faint hint of beer, and that's it. I hope it's because my sample is bad.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Because the nose set a very low bar, the palate easily scores better. It's yeasty, malty and has a taste of slightly burnt porridge. Again, that's it.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Mars bar cornflake cakes, which is surprisingly good, and cocoa. The length is medium.

    Unpeated barley malt. Packs a punch at 50%. Vanilla and creamy nose, slightly resinous. Dilution brings out a toffee fudge sweet note. Taste is nutty and sesame seeds with a touch of sweetness. Smooth finish. Last dram seems the best of the bottle unfortunately.
