  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    L-code: L7116CS000 add bot was too lazy ...
    Glass: Blender's
    Aromatics: let stand for 15 minutes. Citrus peels, vanilla and sweet garbage on cakes on top, flowers and juicy apples and pears
    Taste: waxed, fruit, apple juice and lemon, watery and alcoholic ...
    Finish: medium, pleasant with a bitterness from lemon peels
    It’s good to start with this - a light taste without pressure ...

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A fine whisky, but a bit dime-a-dozen. I believe the word is inoffensive?
    • Nose
      Pretty straightforward citrus and vanilla notes, followed by dry apple cider and marzipan. Finally a touch of damp rocks.
    • Taste
      Sweet with a honey and vanilla influence and some stone fruits, but the dry and crisp apple cider is still here as well. Soft and subtle spiciness, mainly ginger and white pepper.
    • Finish
      Dry, somewhat spicy. Finally soft orchard fruits.

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    quite simple and direct, quite tasty, but he doesn't deserve the ~ 55 € he is now asking for, he plays in the 35 € league
    • Nose
      fresh citrus, white pepper, old, gray wood
    • Taste
      Lemon, malt, custard
    • Finish
      medium length, malt candies

  5. dereinejo scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Fine, light whisky with a good price-performance ratio
    • Nose
      85 85
      Pleasant, very light smoke, sweet barley, slightly lemon and floral
    • Taste
      86 86
      Nice and dry. Clearly malty, again slightly zircon and floral, and a bit of raisins.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The raisins remain on the slightly sweet finish and there is a very light hint of marshmallow.

  8. Max70 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Tasted during an event, a good dram but, in my opinion, the nose give expectations that are not found in the mouth and the final is very short.
