    Nice entry level dram. Not terribly complex for my liking.

    Not very exciting!
    • Nose
      70 70
      Winey fruitiness combined with notes of unripe gooseberries and hay.
    • Taste
      70 70
      Sweeter than in the nose, but with a noticeable sour note. Overall, very weak chest.
    • Finish
      70 70
      medium and sour

    Suffers from the minimum strength, obviously, but I enjoyed my sample more than I thought I would. What surprised me most was the slight helping of peated whisky that apparently went into the blend and that none of the reviews had mentioned. Very well-rounded and enjoyable, though I wouldn't want a whole bottle.

    N- Orange-d walnut candy, or a gluey chocolate-d pistachio nougat bar, if there are such things. The scents you get when open up an enclosed wood cabinet. Drifting between cedar-y, rusty and mineral. Get dusty, also fresh tree leafs and honey jar that evolved to greenish chewy tones.

    P- Chewy wood extracts, oily honey smokes with hint of sherry coming thru with more chocolate and cherry.

    F- Short medium, ginger, get syrupy and more honey sweet as it goes.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    [June, 2015]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 32 Euro in June, 2015.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 85.  My notes state a nice and easy sippable dram...

  6. ctu scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Nice blend, especially the sweet / spicy game.
    • Nose
      Malt, vanilla, honey and caramel, apple sauce
    • Taste
      Creamy honey with dried fruits and spices: cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg
    • Finish
      Medium length, sweet, spicy, increasingly drying

    After swiveling forms a rather thin lip, from which then dissolve beautiful Legsbildene drops, I would classify him as oily.
    A very nice blend that is just right on the summer track.
    • Nose
      Nice sweetness, mild, citrus notes, honey, tingling, quite fruity, gooseberries. Warms up a waxy note, beeswax to the fore, as well as I have found a pleasant wood note.
    • Taste
      Soft, full-bodied, honey, light sweetness, becomes peppery at the tip of the tongue, not quite as fruity as the nose showed, velvety waxiness
    • Finish
      Again, it shows soft and velvety, again a little fruity, beautiful sweetness, which is paired with a pronounced spiciness on the tongue and the mucous membranes remains.

    • Nose
      Winey fruitiness combined with notes of unripe gooseberries and hay
    • Taste
      Sweeter than in the nose, but with a noticeable sour note. Overall, quite weak-breasted
    • Finish
      medium and sour
