  1. Doldersumj scored this whisky 80 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      Ethanol sweetness with a small "tang".
    • Taste
      Gentle sweetness. Citric notes are present. And it stays gentle.
    • Finish
      Smooth finish. And just before the next sip, I taste unripe melon. Good start of the evening. 

  2. larswehmeier scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      At first very obscure. Something dark sweet and oak. Then sherry tones. It takes a long time for it to open for me. Becomes sweeter and fruity and slowly brighter. Grapes.
    • Taste
      Little alcohol. Mild mouthfeel. Oak on the palate. Chocolate on the tongue with some fruits. Pleasantly sweet.
    • Finish
      Medium. Juicy, will not dry so fast. Chocolate.

    Well, a flat whisky, a bit thin, could be a very cheap slip-on, if it were that its price would be a little higher than that.
    The advanced drinker will not find a lot of challenge here. Smell the best by far.
    • Nose
      Fruity especially, citrus / lemon dominates. also sweet, vanilla. Get a bit of a bourbon idea, corn too? And candy-like.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweet, honey, vanilla, caramel. Somewhat orange now too. Still flat and somewhat thin.
    • Finish
      Sweet, not very long, very light peppers, slightly bitter too. Somewhat grumpy now, and honey sweet.

    Extremely easy drinkable, and more exciting than the 12YO.
    • Nose
      Inviting floral sweetness.

      Honey, vanilla, leaning towards a very gentle bourbon style. A drop of lemon juice.

      A very soft hint of cinnamon.

      Birch wood and fresh linnen.

      Most women would be pleased with a bedroom smelling like this ;-)
    • Taste
      Starts of very soft, very gentle, maybe a little thin.

      Loads of sweet caramel.

      Nice nuttyness and an evolving spice.

      Maybe a slice of apple.
    • Finish
      Almost at medium lenght.

      Sweet, drying, spicy, and maybe it's the red wine casks giving a very faint note of sweet sangria at the very end.
