  5. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nice marshmallow sweetness on the nose, coupled to a drier, grassier profile in the mouth. Modern whisky, nothing to complain about.
    • Nose
      Modern whisky, very fresh with a biscuity core and a bright fruitiness. Lots of marshmallow notes. Some mint. A bit of lemon and gristy barley. Pleasantly uncomplicated.
    • Taste
      Starts with fruity notes again (apple, pear, citrus) but it quickly becomes drier, with some pepper and soft grassy notes. A little grainy and a tad too neutral for my taste. There's even a slightly alcoholic edge.
    • Finish
      Fairly long and fairly dry.
