  1. Bam scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    exciting whisky, with which one should occupy itself quite longer, than I did now. For my taste a bit too much of tannins and oak.
    • Nose
      Immediately a strong, slightly artificial green apple flows from the glass, accompanied by a 'dull' note, which I can not quite name, perhaps chlorine, but not stinging. The whole nose looks heavy, and set, flavored pipe tobacco, old leather, strong oak, foliage-covered forest soil. A few herbs, some forest honey and a slight floral note are still behind.
    • Taste
      very easy onset, and watery mouthfeel. Apples and forest honey. The oak becomes spicy / bitter and the tongue starts to roast. Again the dark notes, old leather.
    • Finish
      Medium long, dominated by the tannins of the oak, clearly bitter. Still the apple comes through. White pepper. Some burnt caramel.

  7. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Malt whisky without major strengths and weaknesses.
    • Nose
      Grassy-green, sometimes reminds me of green tea, apple. Also a little chemical, cleaner?
    • Taste
      Soft, sweet, flat, apple, malt, a little vanilla, coffee
    • Finish
      bitter, "green", slightly woody, malt, later coffee

  10. Lovegreen scored this whisky 82 points Member Junior

    Very interesting nose, which makes the first sip,  taste and development a bit of a surprise. 

    One of the more fruity/flowery whiskys, with interesting development - from delicate almost thin flowery/fruity taste to wider and more bitter flavours.

    Impressive for a relatively young whisky.
    • Nose
      Strawberries, nice but slightly synthetic pineapple aroma, white wine, honey and winegums
    • Taste
      pears and other green fruits, lemon, anis seeds, pine wood, faint plastics
    • Finish
      Darkens and gets more bitter, pine wood, angostura, burnt spice gets added. Honey still present.
