  3. 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.

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

  7. J23 scored this whisky 83 points 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. 

  8. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant whisky with character, which is fruity (citrus), especially in the fragrance. The taste is more sweet, and the citrus disappears but makes way for banana.
    The finish is somewhat on the short side, slightly peppery and again banana influences.

  9. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Characterful and fruity whisky.
    • Nose
      fruity, citrus, sinapple (peel), honey, vanilla, sultanas
    • Taste
      slightly peppery, fruity, honey, vanilla, hint of banana too
    • Finish
      somewhat on the short side, slightly peppery, again banana

  10. p4blo scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    For the price it's okay, a decent daily dram, but nothing exquisite.
    • Nose
      Slightly farmy with wet hay, grass, notes of apples, pears, butter, wax and sugary sweetness.
    • Taste
      Thin, light, suffers from watering down. Slight fruitiness with apples and pears again, a tiny hint of raisins, sugar and a handful of pepper.
    • Finish
      Short, the sweetness of sugar continues but is quickly dominated by spiciness of pepper.
