  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    A young, delicious blended malt!
    • Nose
      equally fruity (green apples, pears), sweetness, slightly alcoholic note;
    • Taste
      soft, mild onset, fruity (like Obstler), malt, sweetness, hints of vanilla, but distinct (slightly alcoholic) youth;
    • Finish
      short finish, some oak in the finish;

  2. Jon Osterman scored this whisky 80 points Member Junior

    Not exciting, but a decent value for money. If it's on sale, though, I might pay the extra $8 and get an age statement and a bit more finesse with Glenmorangie Original. ...I do appreciate that in the U.S. we get the extra 3% abv.
    • Nose
      Green apples, Vanilla, a little marshmallow, some solvent notes, some vestigial baking spices
    • Taste
      Vanilla, unripe apple
    • Finish
      Is there a faint hint of peat? Maybe just my imagination.

    Water is not needed.
    • Nose
      Ripe, very sweet and long. Toasted/polished oak.
    • Taste
      Still sweet: a soft start, vanilla custard, a hint of dried fruit, baked banana, cinnamon, vanilla.
    • Finish
      Drier, Seville oranges, a touch of liquorice.
