  1. Abadon05 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    The taste he likes me, but the nose is very restrained.
    He definitely needs a lot of time (30-60 minutes), then he gets much better.
    • Nose
      73 73
      Honey, light salt, lemon.
      With a deeper nose, alcohol notes are also heard. There is also something mineral, goes slightly towards wood, vanilla and coconut.
      Overall, but very restrained, uncomplex and weak.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet, much more light honey and fresh wood. Then a spice is added. He stays nice and sweet. Minimal salty notes with lemon.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Short to medium, with a dry finish. Slightly spicy or bitter. Lemon and salt remain. Add some vanilla and wood. With some milk chocolate.

  2. Juergen Willi scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Comes in a Liter bottle. It's a NAS Whisky, but it's good value for the money spent.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Floral notes, Citrus, Peach, Tangerine, Pear, Vanilla, Anise. Beautiful nose. Refreshing, this is definitely a whisky for the summer.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Alcohol, quite sharp on the tongue. Salty, bitter, not very sweet. Also some oakwood.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Dry, some bitterness, Citrus, Salt. The taste and the finish cannot continue the the good impression that the nose made.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Nose and taste are pretty okay, not big but nice. But finish disappoints, as a lot of aroma's and flavour get lost.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Hay, grassy. Fruity as well, apples. Some vanilla and honey, and later on some pineapple too.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Pretty strong, tickling, grassy, pineapple. Chocolate. Sweet, vanilla. Later on it is getting a little bitter, grapefruit. Also some earthy tones.
    • Finish
      80 80
      A bit disappointing suddenly; pretty short, flat, somelike bitter, grapefruit. Just a little bit tickling still.

  4. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Very drinkable, nice refreshing, nice mix even if he would have tolerated 2-3 years more safely.
    • Nose
      A little weak on the chest, but has nice notes of fresh pear and green apple, some pineapple, light honey and vanilla, white chocolate, some toffee, some Esthernoten, light malt, some salt
    • Taste
      Surprisingly grassy, ​​but at the same time sweet, cotton candy, pear syrup, green apple, light malt and vanilla, white chocolate, a few coconut flakes, some apricot and butter biscuits, young, sharp oak in between, but still in the frame
    • Finish
      Here more of the bright malt, the young oak in particular, a few Esthernoten, pear brandy, medium long

  7. spigray scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    at that price this is more than a decent dram
    86/100
    • Nose
      fresh on apples and pears, hints of tangerines. a little vanilla and custard pie. coarse and hints of honey, hay.
      not great but pleasant so far.
    • Taste
      grassy and fruity, a little floral. apples and danish pastry with a little vanilla and a few hazelnuts. a little sharp and youngish though there is even some oak invovlved.
    • Finish
      long but a little narrow, very fresh and clean

  8. vojt466 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    This is such a chocolate cake with a little cinnamon and slices of lemon on the surface - it's not bad, but it's not even exhausting
    • Nose
      Outstanding sweet smell - brown sugar, caramel, vanilla, gingerbread, lemon, malt
    • Taste
      Taste once again dessert sweet and at the same time spicy (at least at the beginning) - vanilla, sweet biscuits, nougat, woodiness, at the end of the flashing citrus fruit
    • Finish
      In the finish, woodiness, caramel and a little spice - surprisingly, they feel mint

  10. malthead-sven scored this whisky 62 points Expert Senior

    Makes a spicy and unusually "thick" impression in the mouth, but unfortunately can not score with me
    • Nose
      At first restrained, lemony, young, fruit flavors I find not otherwise, but associations of coast and port, a trace of smoke
    • Taste
      unusually creamy, strong spiciness, alcohol is noticeable but not unpleasant
    • Finish
      warm-spicy, some tingling remains in the mouth, but the length leaves something to be desired
