    Schöner Every-Day-Dram
    • Nose
      83 83
      Rosinen, Holznoten, deutliche Sherrynoten,
      harmonische dunkle Aromen
    • Taste
      82 82
      Kräftiger Antritt für 40 %, ölig voller Körper,
      Dunkle Trockenfrüchte, etwas Kaffee, Röstaromen,
      "mouthdrying"
    • Finish
      83 83
      Warmer, erstaunlich langer Abgang mit würzigem Sherry

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Smells the way whisky should smell, sometimes quite stereotypically. Malt, fruit, some sherry, nuts and oak. Everything is there. Even in the mouth fits everything, without that imposes itself, the 40% push surprisingly strong.
    In the finish everything is as expected. A touch of rubber surprised. Sweet, malty, a little sherry, not too light. Just a good solid whisky.

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is a lot more fruity and pleasing than the Miltonduff 10yo (WID: 32090). Also pretty nice to drink. You can not complain about the money. But I will not buy a bottle.
    • Nose
      Honey. Vanilla. Peach and apricot. Sourish white grapes. Also some tropical fruits. Freshly cut grass.
    • Taste
      Fruit muesli with kaba or ovaltine in milk. Tangerine. Quittengelee. Vanilla Semolina pudding.
    • Finish
      Orange peel. Cocoa. Oak.

  6. CaskHead scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Slightly diluted 10-year bottling without highlight. But not a bad whisky. I would like to know how he would make himself in cask strength? There would be more in there ... 82/100 points
    • Nose
      light vanilla, some wood, some malt, light sweetness, "wheat field in midsummer" (OdinNord) it's quite good, light citrus notes, looks a bit young at first
    • Taste
      Vanilla, oak (increasingly), rather light (summer whisky), a bit thin
    • Finish
      some oak and very light vanilla.

  7. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Yeah, you can drink quite well, but it's nothing special, bothers me the bitterness and badly incorporated alcohol something.
    • Nose
      lots of lemon, lots of vanilla, some coconut, some banana, some honey, the alcohol is not perfectly integrated
    • Taste
      watery, sweetish, lots of lemon, a lot of vanilla, some honey, some pear, some banana, some malt, some shortbread, slightly bitter, alcohol is not particularly well integrated
    • Finish
      short, a little dark chocolate, light sweetness, slightly bitter

  9. Dottore scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    blind tasting Totally crazy whisky for me, first I thought terrible, then came in the nose more and more weird stuff, beautiful mouth, weak finish ... what is it? How should I rate this? I'll say 82 confused points! 43%, what and where from.
    • Nose
      First off-grade mountain cheese (I love it, but not in the whisky), sweetie, then getting better, pineapple, green grapes, in general, I feel reminded of these party skewers with cheese.
    • Taste
      very sweet, cocoa, some fruit very different from nose, I do not know what to think of it. Somehow horny and on the other hand real crap ... unfortunately too weak on the chest. 10 volume percent more and that would be really interesting.
    • Finish
      Departure then way too short

  10. vojt466 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    So this is my type of whisky, so I will definitely not save the points
    • Nose
      Round, creamy and heavy - vanilla, chocolate, dried figs, sherry, cane sugar, caramel, topped with citrus fruit
    • Taste
      Sherry, woodiness, liqueur, chocolate cherry, longer citrus, fine spiciness
    • Finish
      Sherry, raisins, chocolate, woodiness, again fine spiciness - long
