  2. horstpedia scored this whisky 69 points Expert Junior

    I'm glad it's just a rehearsal. If I had to drink the entire bottle ...
    • Nose
      Apple, light, only a little alcohol. Very pleasant
    • Taste
      Soapy bitter. Not nice. After a while the taste of apple seeds, which I did not like as a kid.
    • Finish
      Due to unpleasant taste too long.

  3. domani scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    He is out of round and the alcohol is not very well integrated; first watery then oily. You will not get the fresh citrus flavors here but rather the artificial or perfumed version. The bitterness also works - 15.12.2017
    • Nose
      Newsprint, cardboard, lemon, cereals, liquid wax, ethereal, mint, vanilla
    • Taste
      Malt sweetness, watery texture, spicy, short sweet and sour interplay then oak already sets in, earthy, herbs, bitterness à la walnut, rye bread, the bitterness lingers a little longer but towards the end again sweet and oily, wild honey
    • Finish
      medium

  5. dRambo scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    has a sauté note for me - could be a very dry sherry keg I find him a bit weak and immature for his price - blindly I would classify him in the 30 € class.
    • Nose
      old cardboard box, sweet and sour with lots of vanilla, some wood, marzipan, some lemon
    • Taste
      Cardboard again, slightly alcoholic, slightly bitter, mineral, slightly waxy, fruity sweet with a hint of white wine, elegant acidity, cinnamon, nuts, oily and viscous
    • Finish
      quite short, sweet, slightly watery

  6. vojt466 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    At first glance, the taste is very straightforward and quite alcoholic. Nothing worth remembering

  7. St. Pauli scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Although the palate reveals it's youth, this is a solid dram. It's creamy, a little fruity and in the finish also spicy. A nice combination of youth and wood.
    • Nose
      fresh, juicy and waxy, with a bit of minerality. There is plenty of malt in the nose, together with beeswax and a bit of vanilla. There is ample fruit too, with pear, apple and sweet lemon. The nose is complemented by a solid backbone of grass. 
    • Taste
      A bit young still. Malty, a bit on iron, bread, cake dough, pastry, green apples and gooseberries. Behind that, some vanilla and grass.
    • Finish
      Moderate, malty, creamy and a tad spicy. Ginger bread, danish pastry, peach, vanilla, and cinnamon.

  8. Defeatless scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Sweet sour, grassy, marzipan. Hay and wood shavings. Feels a bit young on the nose.

    Taste:
    Sweet, again marzipan. Wood sap. Youngish. Not very active casks.

    Body:
    Silky, but not really oily

    Finish:
    Medium. Again the wood sap. Some raw wood as well. A bit sweet and again a hint of marzipan.

    Price: Don't pay more then €50,-. Everything else is speculation.

    Presentation
    Sober and decent as all F&F
