  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Not a really nice malt, almost unpleasant on the nose, flat taste and too austere finish
    • Nose
      Somehow sour and not very pleasant, dry, rather tart citrus notes, below it gradually comes out a slight sweetness, air does it well in any case, now vanilla, slightly creamy, light burnt biscuits, floral and fresh, on the edge Ovaltine, in total pretty youthful and with some time not really great, Sherryfasseinfluss you look for the way in vain
    • Taste
      oily, despite weak alcohol a fairly decent mouthfeel, yellow fruit, again slightly sourish, but more pleasant than in the nose, pear, mirabelle, light sweetness, a little vanilla, some wood, quite ok to drink, the second sip he then acts somehow thin from the intensity of the aromas, the most dominant is the oak
    • Finish
      Tart with chewed apple kernel, creamy, but the tongue is also slightly stunned, slightly dry

  2. Daan Tje scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Bit to young and the sherry influence is thereby just there instead of real sweet...though for the price and good quality buy
