    • Nose
      Fruity, coconut, very soft taste. Also has a nice sweet fruit flavor.
    • Taste
      Whole light whisky. Very soft aftertaste. Fruity whisky with a soft, sweet character. Very accessible. Very good whisky for that price! A nice aftertaste, where only the taste lingers. You taste almost no alcohol. Quite sin, but the classic is because he is so easy an ideal whisky to drink continuously.

    A young, simple summer whisky!
    • Nose
      distinct fruitiness (pears, maybe peach), delicate vanilla;
    • Taste
      light, oily body, fresh on start (mint) and slightly alcoholic; distinct youth unmistakable; very simple malt;
    • Finish
      medium-long, malty finish.

    Sweet, malty, citric, fresh. Something alcoholic in the mouth, grapefruit and a bit metallic. OK, the citrus note like it.

    First taste: Unexpected, actually quite strong. Not really matching the nose. A nice heat, not too much but enough to know its a spirit. The body is light and has more fruity notes than the initial nose or taste. A fresh taste that wakes the senses up. No real punch (good), nice and light but not light enough to forget you are drinking scotch.

    With water: really mellows the taste and brings a more floral tone to the front. I think it's better without water. 

    Good value for money. I would not make a specific recommendation but would be happy to be offered a glass and happy to finish this bottle.

    Very soft, friendly but also flat whisky. Good for a beginning drinker, but a somewhat experienced whiskydrinker will not get much satisfaction here.

    Whisky Tasting Notes Café de Toeter, Groningen 31-10-2015
    • Nose
      Hmmm, no wrong nose. Funny nose. Pretty wet moss like, autumn. Old leaves. Somewhat small caramel.
    • Taste
      Citrus, gras
    • Finish
      Difficult, complex taste. After-taste is a bit woody.
