7 users have left 8 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 82.43 points.

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Not a very balanced whisky in my view. Too much sharpness for me.
    • Nose
      Malty and yeasty. Herbal notes. Granny Smith apples and juniper berries. Cardboard as well.
    • Taste
      Very light and clean. Winey with a sharp spicy edge of alcohol. Vermouth. Some citrus fruit and smoke.
    • Finish
      The sharpness remains. Pepper. Aromatic.

  7. magic_slim scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Easy and drinkable, but nothing special.
    • Nose
      Mellow, herbal, smoky, with cardboard and licorice at first nosing. In addition I smell vanilla, dried pears and hints of mint.
    • Taste
      Dry and smoky (smoke from a blown-out candle) at first mouthfeel. A sudden blitz of toffee, then over to wood, hay and pepper.
    • Finish
      Dry and dusty.

  8. Sonett scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    What I would call a nice dram with value for money
    • Nose
      Nose is finetuned and rather vague with malty tones with tendencies towards hay, herbs and finally a hint of vanilla.

      There is also a slightly immature nose but difficult to define and not at all unpleasant.
    • Taste
      Enters the mouth with a sweetness influenced by vanilla, then soft and elegant spices 
    • Finish
      Medium long going from fading spices back to sweet vanilla and ends with thin taste of almonds
