  1. Brad1011 scored this whisky 89 points Newbie

    Very good whisky for the price. Strong influence of Port cask in a short time. Not to complex, easy drinker.
    • Nose
      Dark fruits, prunes, old oak barrel,
    • Taste
      Egain dark fruits, sweet cooked fruits. Nice taste around the tongue and mouth.Not to sharp but with the right amount of power.
    • Finish
      Nice finish, a little bit bitter fruits and seeds.

    Bottle opened for a few days.
    Colour is rose-rusty, saturated but transparent.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fresh an uplifting. Fragrant. Instantly tells it's youth and even at nose you can feel the short-time active-cask finish profile. A little sweetness to it, it is mainly floral, reminiscent of small red berries. Not much of a nose really, but whatever you can get out of it smells pleasing.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Thin marzipan layer covering the mouth, then explosion of wineish flavours, more of a red wine cask profile, rather than port one. Rose pepper tingling inbetween bitter-sweet red berries. Feels light and young, but not agressive, more of a joyful, lighthearted companion. Autumn dram, maybe for a sunny day. No off-notes.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium lenght, feels like it's making room for another sip. Maybe leaves tongue receptoprs a tad numb. If you are CS sensitive, might want to try with a little water.
