    Whisky Style: Smooth and aromatic - very easy drinking.

  5. Igor scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    It is a fairly good malt in spite of the young age.
    • Nose
      Mild and mellow, with a delicate berry-like sweetness, almost like crushed sugared strawberries.
    • Taste
      Winy astringency, cherry, strong tea (orange pekoe), cinnamon, vanilla cookies.
    • Finish
      Maritime saltiness interacts beautifully with bitterness of tangerine peel.
