    Nose 20.5, taste 21, finish 20, balance 20.5

  2. Highlander65 scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Initially very good, especially the perfume, then it fades a little and becomes more banal and saucer. Good whisky anyway.
    • Nose
      Very fragrant, not very sweet, biscuit, yellow fruit, honey, a pinch of tobacco and tea leaves
    • Taste
      Light body, sweet without excess, slightly spicy, balsamic and creamy
    • Finish
      Quite long, not very sweet, slightly balsamic, honey, ginger biscuit

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A nice, pleasant, simple highlander with a sufficiently diverse and deep scent for his years, though somewhat discouraging with his unexpected rotten perversions; taste / finish are pleasant, transparent and fresh, good saturation and density for a commercial fortress.
    • Nose
      Open, moist, herbal with a light medicinal hue, valerian, motherwort; malt, lemonade tones, wet cardboard, mineral notes, dried fruits, light molds, salted fish?!, slight notes of rot - lying raw meat, fish douche;
    • Taste
      Dusty-woody, light, with sourness, "transparent" peppery wave, a little dried fruit - dried apricots in the main, and dirty; oily, spicy, slightly astringent oak.
    • Finish
      Herbaceous, again some medicinal mix-tablet motifs, dry grass, oily, unsweetened dried apricots, lemon in tea.

  7. puusj scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Fruity and sweet in nose and taste. Short aftertaste with a very small / short pepper. Nice slobber, but no brilliant whisky.

  10. J23 did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Good balance in price/quality.
    • Nose
      Some smoke, honey, citrus and sherry.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, berries, more vanilla and some spices. 
    • Finish
      relatively short, a tiny hint of peat and something refreshing.
