  1. greg_0277 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Easy access, very soft. A well made whisky but without great flavor.

      Nose on fruit, honey, vanilla but without exuberance
    • Taste
      86 86
      The palate is very soft, all the aromas are well melted but nothing surprising.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is rather short and like the whole without any real great flavor.

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Well fruity and well malted on the nose. On the palate, honey and spices, especially spices, well done.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

    Nose: fruity, malty, sweet, mango, lemon, pineapple, great flower, fresh and fruity. Taste: mild onset, tasty, no stinging, then comes some tobacco to come to the full fruit on the finish. Here dominates apple, flowery, young and fresh, tasty, oily in the mouth, only slight dryness, at the very end the taste of grappa (grapes). Great fresh summer paint. 92 points
