  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    This very old blend from Lidl is a great success. The interplay of the fruity Speyside flavors and the spicy, slightly smoky Highland influences is well balanced. On the palate, it goes well with the nose. A little sweet would have suited him here, though.

      At the beginning apple, pear, roasted aromas and light charcoal smoke. Later vanilla, mint, caramel, citrus, salt and tobacco.
    • Taste
      86 86
      soft, spicy, vanilla, tobacco, malt, light apple and pear, subtle smoke, slowly becoming slightly bitter. Alcohol well integrated.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long finish that stimulates saliva flow, with briefly light-colored fruits, malt, tobacco, some bitter smoke, pepper, wood and walnut. Alcohol well integrated.

  4. Totoro scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A bit tart at the end, but otherwise a successful, inexpensive, sherry-heavy blend with a clear smoky note reminiscent of Bowmore and, just after the bottle was allowed to draw some air, a floral-fragrant, pleasantly mature nose. Perhaps a slight hint of violets on the palate, which is not for everyone, but otherwise well worth the money.
