  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    If you wanted to describe to someone who does not know anything about whisky what a typical younger Speyside whisky was like this would be it, light, fruity and floral.

    I think this is better than the average score suggests.

  8. Dre73 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Al 'nosend' quite a lot of aromas are released, promising. That promise is then not fulfilled, whisky itself is quite flat, the aromas are not nearly as strong in the taste. Finish is also very short, and not really memorable.
    Easy, completely non-complex entry-level whisky, for an absolutely reasonable price, presentation (bottle and tube) looks good.

  9. Dre73 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    A very light, soft whisky. Great for non-trained drinkers, or for just an easy whisky in between.
    • Nose
      Honey, spicy (gingerbread), apples and citrus fruits, coconut, vanilla
    • Taste
      Very soft, a little flat. Little orange, citrus, gingerbread, honey. Also a bit watery.
    • Finish
      Short, somewhat dry. Somewhat fruity and spicy.

  10. domani scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    A light fruity single malt. The sweet flavors could be more pronounced in taste; nonetheless a good, solid malt. Ideal for summer evenings - 19.07.2015
    • Nose
      Sweet, marzipan, toffee, gooseberry, pear
    • Taste
      Very light, fresh, fruity
    • Finish
      Short
