  1. Kumachan scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    A great whisky because of its taste, balanced quality and complexity, its price is perfect for this quality. A whisky that will make fans and professionals happy. If it had to be given a subjective rating, it would be a 90.
    • Nose
      Gold dress, many tears, regular, fine and fast. It is concentrated on the nose, heady, a marinade of blackcurrant and cherry blossoms, orange blossom, acacia honey. A sweet and surprising sensation of red fruits, acid raspberry. Violet and anise, but also white flesh fruit like pear.Mineral and peppery, a little salty side.
    • Taste
      The palate is sweet and concentrated on pear, acacia honey and white flowers, violet and a lactic impression of pear yoghurt. It's tender, sweet and salty, camphor, cocoa, wet rock and zan on the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is moderately long, earthy and mineral.

    I´m a sucker for these simple, straightforward clynelishes and could have them every day.
    don´ get me wrong, this is not a big whisky. it only satisfies my personal taste perfectly.

    • Nose
      I think I could review this by heart, cause I have had so much of that stuff.
      lemons, apples , pears, beeswax, wet beach sand, whiffs of smoke. light malt and caramel, slightly gingery
    • Taste
      wonderful: coastal and mineral, just the right amount of wax and honey, very little fudge and a hint of a hint of peat smoke. vanilla.
    • Finish
      medium, clean,

    Dress: caramel Nose: not very expressive and difficult to decipher. It's round and fruity, some notes a little buttered and a background more mineral. Palate: creamy and warm, a greedy texture with fruit. Final: light smoke, a little drier.
    Comment: a whisky quite complex and difficult to access when we start.

  7. Koalafant scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Not exciting, but I have never felt so comfortable and fitting
    • Nose
      Gentle mild with clear oak notes. Dry fruity after unripe apricots, gooseberry and baked quince

  9. p4blo scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nice summer dram for little money.
    • Nose
      Very light and sweet, honey, wax, some straw.
    • Taste
      Sweet on honey and malt, there is also butter, apricots and a bunch of spices. Quite mellow though.
    • Finish
      Medium long with spicy sweetness.

  10. The Macallan scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Quite a pleasant whisky, but when it has matured on South African Sherry butts then it's a different story, more exotic flavors.
    • Nose
      Floral, sweet and candle wax (reduced: more peatsmoke emerge still some sweety and floral notes)
    • Taste
      Maritime influences, smoky flavors with spicy and sweet notes (reduced: much softer and all the flavors from the unreduced situation seems to be lighter and even weaken)
    • Finish
      Dry start, briny with a light sweet melange of spices
