  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 50 points Connoisseur

    Should be drunk ice cold. I did it too. Still tastes no different than vodka from the freezer.

  7. Crann feàrna scored this whisky 68 points Expert Senior

    Tasting was on room temperature. Extreme chilling (as suggested on the bottle!) will only make this suitable for effect-drinking: getting drunk.
    But this subtle whisky is an interesting tasting starter. It is Light, Non-aggressive. And really requires the concentration on the nose and taste.
    • Nose
      Indistinctive. Methylated spirit, sweet malt.
    • Taste
      Sweet arrival of fruitjuices (apple juice), immediate development of warmth and sharpness on the tongue. No taste development.
    • Finish
      Short, sweet and warm finish with liquorice.

  8. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    My heart is wide, but you can probably just behind the recommended "enjoyment temperature" behind. I had previously tried it uncooled - not recommended, because one smells only diluted dilution and the taste is immediately spicy and bitter.
    • Nose
      (from the freezer, as recommended)
      a hint of vanilla, slightly chemically-artificial fruitiness, thinning
    • Taste
      Sweet, a little grain, vanilla, as soon as you leave it in your mouth (as is usual with good whiskey), sharpness and not very pleasant bitterness are released
    • Finish
      short and bitter

  10. Georges scored this whisky 72 points Connoisseur

    Blend of grain whiskys
    • Nose
      Vanilla, ginger, peaches
    • Taste
      Fruity, spicy, pears
    • Finish
      Rather short, spicy, vanilla
