  2. Waykid scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A bit nervous and unbalanced at the beginning, then turns decisively more pleasant and round. Develops this stale note that is okay in the nose but a bit off-putting in taste.
    • Nose
      Initially really sharp, banana, apricot and bitter, lager-like beer. Some nailpolish-remover and some sweet rubbery notes. Than it rounds up and sweetens: pleasant green apple, dates, raisins and figs, cashew and hazelnut, sweet lager and some cherries. Dusty attic and a wool-blanket.
    • Taste
      The sweet side of a good lager, tarty and a bit of weed-like sweetness. Some nuttiness, an oily mouthfeel, red apple rather than green, and some very nice light sherrynotes: dried fruits, dates, raisin, figs, apricot, faint mocha. Something a bit stale that is not very pleasant: wool, dust? The beer notes are obvious: in the direction of some red ales from Scotland.
    • Finish
      Bitter & sweet, middle-long.

  3. Malt Hans scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Fruity and malty aroma, vanilla, apricot,

    pear, heather honey, oil paint, cardamom and lavender. Marzipan sweet

    and malty taste, ginger, vanilla, mint and grapefruit. Medium long,

    malty and spicy end.
