  1. Spoerkel scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A typical SMWS with the flavor "Sweet, fruity, mellow": Fruity, slightly perfume-like, but still tasty.

  3. Armando did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS notes: The aroma reminded us of white chocolate toasted oats, strawberry granola, bourbon vanilla bean shortbread cookies, rich tea finger biscuits and butter-toasted hazelnuts. The palate neat was strong and robust with a sweet/spicy flavour combination dominating as in a salted caramel cheesecake with a buttery biscuit base, creamy caramel filling and a luscious salted caramel sauce. Following the addition of water fruity aromas of apples, pears and melon appeared but we also baked a batch of biscotti with nuts, fruits and chocolate. To taste now sweet, oaky and malty with a very characteristic caramel note which reminded one panellist of an alcohol-free malt drink of his youth.
