  2. Matt80 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Herbal, grassy, some gentle smoke, a little spice tickles at the nostrils, an almost flowery sweetness with time.
      With water - sweeter malty tone, almost sugary
    • Taste
      Soft smoke initially before developing and filling the mouth a little more, gently charred oak, a little weak and watery.
      With water - oak is fuller.
    • Finish
      Short/medium, smoke lingers but gets woody like chewed pencil, walnut aftertaste.
      With water - medium/long, a shadow of initial finish

  3. Bomshanka scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Wins on the nose but loses it all again in the mouth.
    Notes from a 2 year open bottle below halfpoint. Seems to have opened up and settled down somewhat over that time. Would probably score a few points lower freshly opened, but this is strictly based on memory as I have no second bottle of this.
    • Nose
      83 83
      First off spices, namely pepper, white pepper, then some grass, honey and caramel. Despite being only 40% the alcohol does nip a bit here. Then comes the young oak with a bit of vanilla and even some spearmint. Not too far from HP10 here.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Mildy grassy, honeyed cereal, bit of oak and vanilla, peppery, spicy and alcoholic nip - again only @ 40% - cardboard. Pretty one dimensional and not up to par with the nose.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Pepper, chili, cardboard - medium long on the "afterburner".

    • Nose

      yeast, alcohol, pepper, honey
    • Taste
      84 84
      bourbon, vanilla, honey, wood
    • Finish
      86 86
      more filled bourbon taste on the finish with vanillas

  8. DB1965 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Again a mediocre bottle for the travel retail. Probably only interesting for the ignorant travelers who expect to bring a standardized brand for a nice price. It doesn't make me hot or cold.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Caramel, vanilla, honey and some oak. You smell the youth.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Slightly smoky, vanilla and some citrus fruits. I also taste some oak and herbs.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium long, the smokiness remains. Sweetness of vanilla and honey. In the background some oak and herbs.

  9. schengel10 scored this whisky 65 points Connoisseur

    An average malt; the second from the Warrior series;
    Liter bottle; with can;
    [Color] bright amber;
    • Nose
      weak aromas: fruit, wood, oak, vanilla, sweetness, hardly any smoke;
    • Taste
      soft, mild, fruity, vanilla, no smoke, wood, spice, metallic youth, one-dimensional;
    • Finish
      medium long, dry, spicy, slightly bitter;

  10. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Fairly young, malty, fruity, some vanilla, with a nice hint of smoke on the finish. Nothing complex, but very tasty.
