    Blind tasting of a sample.
    • Nose
      Apple, vanilla, oak, caramel, lime, apricot, spice and a small touch of malt.
    • Taste
      Caramel, wood, vanilla, apple and lime. A little touch of pepper. Blend-like with little character, disappointing compared to the nose.
    • Finish
      Caramel, vanilla, lime, chestnut and a little smoke. After a while the sherry notes like raisin and dark chocolate prevail.

  9. Xstream scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Love the oily texture. It`s a very mellow whisky. Lovely sweet flavors with caramel, honey and vanilla and oak to balance it out. But it lacks something fresh or fruity to really shine and make it really wake up.  

    Works well with dark chocolate.

    Beautiful entry level
    • Nose
      Almost rancio. Fruits. Wood, vanilla.
    • Taste
      Too small but nice
    • Finish
      Average on malt
