  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Promising whisky in terms of appearance and nose, but then it is still disappointing: Flat, very easy dram, extremely suitable for non-grinding whisky drinkers.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Nose is still pretty nice, but the taste is too flat. Very sweet and fruity, very easy to sip away, but hardly the idea that you are really drinking whisky. Also the finish is not impressive.
    • Nose
      fruity, orange peel, sultanas, also some oak
    • Taste
      fruity, soft, flat, even somewhat watery
    • Finish
      short, dry, slightly bitter
