    Your basic malty Speyside, nothing off putting and nothing outstanding.

    A delicious malt whisky with a nice full flavor with honey and nuts in a beautiful carafe with a beech wood stopper.

    I am not a fan. Maybe the most boring and insipid whisky I have ever tasted. Also it swims like a rock.
    • Nose
      Almost not there. Some astringent alcohol, a little bit of toasted cereal, and hint of oak.
    • Taste
      Very thin and weak. Bitterness from the oak, again with the not-so-pleasant alcohol note. An afterthought of apples or pears.
    • Finish
      Shorty McShorts. The unpleasant alcohol is gone though. Akvavity.

  6. vojt466 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Not too complex, but definitely not bad + the price is more than pleasant
    • Nose
      Sushi, vanilla, chocolate, oranges, raisins, mint
    • Taste
      Sweet, creamy, background citrus, lime, gooseberry and gently spicy
    • Finish
      Cream, chocolate, some grain, matolin, latte macchiatto

    A bit simple, but if you're not out to overload the senses it's very drinkable.

    I like the bottle shape which sits well in the hand when pouring, as well as the flared opening with the oversized wood topper.
    • Nose
      Light, fruity and surpricingly fresh.

      Lots of juicy apples and a few peaches.

      Mild fudge, very faint vanilla and oak.
    • Taste
      Very light,almost watery, sweet malt, some hazelnutts arriving midway. Burnt honey turning spicy.
    • Finish
      Spice lingers a little, turning slightly bitter, dry and woody.
