  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    This is very light and creamy, almost too light for me.

    Some nice pineapple and lemon sherbet notes come in which really lift the profile, otherwise it would be boring without them.

    Finish is ok, an aperitif.

  5. Igor scored this whisky 64 points Expert Senior

    Proportionally it contains 66% grain and 34% malt spirit. Immature rather than youthful, this whiskey doesn't go well to drink neat. Unless, of course, you miss extremities like burning palate, which I'd prefer to avoid. Nah, no good. Not good for me in any event.
    • Nose
      Rummy sweetness, spicery, rubber (pencil eraser), soldering/pokerwork smoke, cream, banana skin, white apples. Fresh but rough, heavy gin-like alcohol, juniper berry oil and evergreen resinous smell.
    • Taste
      Allspice, paprika, pinch of white pepper, husky grains, nutmeg, butterscotch, liquorice candy, crystallised fruits. Bitter, sharp and ardent, zesty, although rather thin in texture.
    • Finish
      Salt, brine, citric-sour, poignant, apple vinegar, cereal, dried banana chips, chark, ashy. More bitterness but thankfully subsiding fast, brown liquid caramel, wood shaving.

  6. drkrylov scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Slightly sweet, some malt, citrus, honey.
    • Taste
      Very pleasant malt with some strong lemon and grapefruit citrus and honey. The taste is very smooth. The malt vis a vis the citrus creates something of a 'sweet and sour' effect.
    • Finish
      Long and consistent flavour throughout the finish.
