  1. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Absolutely faceless whisky, with annoying bread shades, because of which it is almost impossible to distinguish the overall palette of the drink. Of the advantages, only the price.
    • Nose
      Very simple, with a bias in obsessive malt shades. I feel notes of caramel, red apple and young bark.
    • Taste
      Brown bread, caramel, lemon sourness, a little pepper and tannin.
    • Finish
      Dry, coarse, short. First, solid malt echoes, then a primitive sweetness and a bit of oak.

    Easy and unspectacular. Spirit driven sharpness.
    • Nose
      No water: Grainy. Fruity sweetness. Red apples
      With water: fresh fruit, mandarin, dark fruits. Green grains.
    • Taste
      No water: sharp spirit on the tongue. Development of melon, oak wood, lime rind. Short finish.
      With water: less sharp arrival. Spicey development to light sweetness. Short finish
    • Finish
      Short finish, undefined.

    Not spectacular but nice drinkable dram and very cheap.
