  4. dRambo scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nose: baked apples, toffee, marzipan, sprinkled dough with vanilla and butter, light oak notes with a nice delicate tart acidity, very elegant, relatively light, not alcoholic, very harmonious
    Taste: smooth, oily but less syrupy, slightly warming, also here toffee, noticeably oak, slightly dry, pleasantly peppery with honey and spice on the palate, walnuts and hints of tobacco are found, the finish is medium in length with tart oak notes, a little dryness Conclusion: only 40%, color, cooling filtration, tastes delicious, no Spitzenmalt, but solid Easy Drinking

  5. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Solid, round, mild, tasty-tasty standard, was at that time for under 30 ¬ a nice beginner (Alldaydram, summer whisky, blabla ... ;-)). From memory I would say something a little fuller and sweeter than the predecessor in the lighter packaging, which was fresher and flowery.
    • Nose
      sweet, soft, toffee, a very light marzipan coating ... plus a mild fruitiness, ripe banana, applesauce, a fleeting hint canned pineapple, not too thin, no piece sprittig
    • Taste
      mild, sweet, creamy, malt, milk chocolate, there might still be orange marmalade - slightly bitter - but I would not summon it, and a soft, dry woodiness
    • Finish
      medium long, mild, creamy, milk chocolate, finally a very mild oak

  7. vojt466 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    It is not bad, but no miracle
    • Nose
      Sweet - the aromas of tropical fruit, honey, floral tones, wax predominate. Somewhere in the background a little peat
    • Taste
      avocado, peach, wax, vanilla, oil, light spice
    • Finish
      Short, lightly sweet - grapefruit, mature dark fruits, light woody
