  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Spicy, vanilla, slightly grassy, woody and malty nose
    mouth on caramel, vanilla, malt, grain, slightly cooked yellow fruits (apple, peach and a little tangerine), some dry wood in return, simple but effective. cocoa feeling at the end.
    Quite simple finish, monolithic on the same scents, malt, vanilla, spices forward for a creamy side.
    A slightly disappointing blend compared to its little brother.

  2. coldsun scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Good whisky, with very malty and fruity (apple, plum, apricot) flavor, with notes of flowers. Taste and finish continue flavor notes well and fully.

      First follows Granny Smith, raisins, wood, malt and mandarins. The longer the whiskey breathes, you can smell burnt sugar, peach, pineapple juice and then lightly white pepper. Lemon, cloves, nutmeg, orange peel, white grapes, dark chocolate and some perfume. Light, fresh and pear follow at the end.

  6. SimondeVette scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A very good and complex blend. Most definitely worth the price
    • Nose
      Raisins, caramel, vanilla, oak, chocolate, a note of apple, citrus and apricot
    • Taste
      Raisins, vanilla, honey, chocolate, citrus, apple, caramel
    • Finish
      Starts with bitter oak, but transforms fast into a sweet and soft dram with raisins and chocolate. A bit of white pepper remains.
