  3. filleadh mhòr scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    a nice speysider, never tiring, always welcomed. 83/84 
    • Nose
      pretty fresh: unripe lime sugared, minerals, say limestone, white pepper, malted barley, light vanilla, a hint of cardboard. smells younger than 17 years old.
    • Taste
      barley sugar, balanced with some acidity from yellow fruits, even pineapple and papaya, resin, white pepper, get' quite spicy after a while on your tongue, some almonds fade in.
    • Finish
      mainly on pepper, almonds, minerals - just a little bit cardboardy  

  4. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    for ~ 40 € a bargain - solid, robust refill whisky, not too exhausting, but not boring, the bottle is empty too fast
    • Nose
      slightly fruity (sweet apple, pear), vanilla, cereals, malted coffee, toasted notes
    • Taste
      some fruit (raisins, dried fruits), spicy-sweet overall, vanilla, caramel, white coffee, almost burnt sponge cake, slight heat
    • Finish
      medium long, milk chocolate, liquorice

  8. erikz scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Great middle of the road whisky. Recommend this to anyone starting with single malts.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    The label indicates it to be a 'Speyside single malt'.
    • Nose
      Lime, sugar almond, malt sugar, tangerine, vanilla, peanut, hazelnut, green apple, limestone and floral notes. With water some honey and peach.
    • Taste
      Pepper, lime, hazelnut, almond, malt, clove, apple, tangerine and caramel. With water some honey. Quite different from the nose.
    • Finish
      Almond, chestnut, lime, pepper, caramel, honey and orange. Too much musty nuttiness to leave a very pleasant memory.
