    A young, simpler and cheaper Speyside Malt;
    • Nose
      light, fruity (green apple, pear), some malt;
    • Taste
      Soft onset, fruity (apples, grapes), subtle spiciness, young and simple, but without off-flavors!
    • Finish
      very short, fruity finish;

    So as a single malt does not say anything to me. No corners, no edges. I would give that to my ignorant guests (whisky cola), that would be the better alternative to the different blends that have to serve otherwise. And it does not cost significantly more.

      Smells flat, little alcohol and little smell. Very fruity. This could be an average supermarket blend, but not as spirited. I do not expect anything.
    • Taste
      70 70
      Undefinable light sweetness, maybe apple? Slightly alcoholic. Again, nothing stunning. He has nothing that could interest me in any way. Probably better than the aforementioned supermarket blend, but actually only because he lacks this Grain-alcoholiness.
    • Finish
      70 70
      Luckily only briefly, there remains a touch of green apple, so at least something I can classify.

    not recommended for drinking pure.
    • Nose
      Grainy. Fruity sweetness; red apples.

      with water: more defined sweetness of fresh dark fruit and tangerines.
    • Taste
      Sharp alcohol arrival. Development of melon, oak wood, citrus piff. Short finish.

      With water: less sharp arrival. More spicy (wood) and light sweetness. Short finish.
    • Finish
      Virtually non-existing.

  10. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    (1) & (1/2) close to each other, where (1/2) has slightly opened, (1/8) has changed significantly, milder, softer, in taste a little more mature, set, smelling fresher, fruity, which makes me almost like it best
    Overall, solid, tasty malt for 16 euros.
    • Nose
      Comparative Tasting (1) freshly opened (1/2) & (1/8) half or eighth bottle shaken vigorously monthly for 14 months and left open for 5 min ------------------------------------- soft, sweet, malty, vanilla, a hint of nut, with some apple and pineapple, (1) slightly nutty, the sweetest (1/2) more open, fruity, a hint of white pepper? (1/8) The mildest, but clearly freshest, most fruity, it sounds like white wine, some lemon
    • Taste
      sweet, malty, nutty, some white pepper (1) & (1/2) not indistinguishable, stronger, sweet, nutty, (1/8) noticeably softer, creamier, no more pepper
    • Finish
      medium long, malt, some apple peel (1) & (1/2) some pepper, (1/8) rather nougat
