  1. Shane_IL scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    This was a great whisky, but the short and simple finish kind of ruined it for me, after the nose and palate I was expecting something a bit more spectacular.
    • Nose
      Mild smoke, toffee, candy floss, Apple, pepper, nutmeg, walnuts 
    • Taste
      Bit of dry brown sherry, guinnes, caramel sweets, stewed pears, peanuts 
    • Finish
      Far too short, spicy toffee

    • Nose
      82 82
      Soft and sweet nose. Especially very light. Fruit predominates, especially red fruit. Does need time due to low abv.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Soft and very light. Port does not really come into its own. Easy.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Good drinkable dram, not very complex. Simply pleasant.

  6. Koalafant scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    Good all-rounder, but miss the last kick.
    • Nose
      Sweet and fresh. Dark fruits like blackberries, and red currant, but also gooseberries. Later in the background a bit smoke and sour with sea breeze
    • Taste
      Spicy and oaky with a light sweetness. Later, the oak becomes more dominant
    • Finish
      medium-long and spicy with a light, pleasant bitterness

  9. ThS scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Well below the standard version: less complex, less rich, less bulky and structured; more unbalanced, more bitter, more boring. Finishing, or the art of destroying a good whisky?

  10. j j scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    this one is making me sad. 

    weak nose, poor taste. minimum alcohol kills it.

    hints off polish and pear in finish.
