  1. MaroFF scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The first whisky that captivated me with its finish compared to the aroma and taste. Very drinkable, with well-hidden alcohol, quite sweet, fruity, with lots of peppery spices, but moderately, not dominating the whole. The long-lasting aftertaste of honey and IPA is the perfect culmination. It is very nice and tasty for me.

    Water drop
    The aroma has become floral and honey, there is a toilet block ?, notes of smoke and chamois leather escaped, lemon remains unchanged.
    Taste ... More creamy, less oak, forest fruits gave way to blackcurrant. It seems to me that it tastes worse here than in the original.
    The finish has completely softened, it has become very smooth without expression, so bland. Surprisingly there are traces of flour.
    No, this is not it!
    If it costs, then only in the original version.
