  1. Arrrrrdbeg scored this whisky 73 points Member Senior

    Malt comes through, pears and apples in your mouth.
    Sweet.
    A classic and good introduction to the whisky world.
    Can't go wrong for a start and for the price.

  4. Dram Brigade scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    That single malt that gets many into world of whisky. Simple but always a good drink with friends.

    Taste profile of pear and green apple infused water, with some commercialize honey products mix together.

  6. Matt80 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Pear, apple, restrained malt, wood, oak. Over time there are overtones of light toffee, very clean, a touch of butter, lime.

      With water - There is some grass, mild citrus, vanilla.
    • Taste
      A little acidic, mild oak, some apple, a little wood spice, vanilla.

      With water - An already restrained palate is toned down even more, a touch spicier
    • Finish
      Medium, vanilla, oak that leaves a slight sweetness.

      With water - Citrus, spice.

  8. TastyDram did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

     A more than decent product. Classy bottle design, nicely balanced flavors and beautiful in its simplicity. And yet that's what makes this dram a bit boring. Or is it just my natural preference for the underdog (read: smaller scale distilleries) manifesting itself...
    • Nose
      Vanilla and oak are dominating the glass. Water unleashes the fruitiness. I'm thinking of cooking pears and green apples.
    • Taste
      Not many surprises here. Once again an overdose of vanilla. With a bit of effort you'll discover some coconut and apples. Quite a nice balance but anything but breathtaking.
    • Finish
      Short and dry. Exactly what you're expecting from an appetizer.
