  2. Igor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Quite an honest well-made blend with a soft coastal chararcter for a reasonable price.
    Colour: pale gold

      Whiffs of white fruit arise first. Banana, cidery apples, yeasty pear, a touch of mild vanilla, add lemon candies at the far end. It seems, there's a slightest hint of peat beneath all that as well - ever so soft. Castor sugar (after breathed enough).
    • Taste
      83 83
      Starts with a nice amount of fructose sweetness, it's quite juicy, succulent rather, medium bodied mouthfeel. Then fruity sweetness is replaced by briny/salty and tart/sour nuances at the sides of the mouth. And peat becomes more evident too, not too much though. Lemon skins, dry, astringent, slightly bitter, green walnut(?).
    • Finish
      81 81
      The aftertaste lacks for expression somewhat, although it is lengthy enough for your standard blended Scotch. Bitter-dry and citric notes subside. Pistachio-like, lemony and salty, zesty, again bitter-dry.

  5. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting. Not my cup of tea.
    • Nose
      Fruity, leather, some mint, citrus, malty and some caramel.
    • Taste
      Young, sharp, grains, spirity, pepper and some sulphur.
    • Finish
      Sharp, bitter, oily and grains.    

  6. markjedi1 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    The composition is
    most likely very similar to the regular bottle, but still this one is a touch
    more expensive. Marketing, I suppose? Same whisky, same score. Thanks, Pat!
    • Nose
      Yep, the nose on this
      Christmas bottling is exaclty the same as the standard version: apples and
      apricots with some peat. Evolves with floral elements towards leather, hay and
    • Taste
      Some sweet malt comes
      first, before the fruit expresses itself. It is nicely oily on the palate.
      Spicy and somewhat salty. Goes down very easily.
    • Finish
      I get a touch of oak
      on the short finish.

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Caramel, peat, lemon, apple, vanilla, melon, mango and a sharp alcoholic whiff like schnapps.
    • Taste
      Peat, vanilla, apple and caramel. Pretty sharp for its low ABV.
    • Finish
      Peat, caramel, apple and vanilla.
