  1. Ivynor scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    An 18 year old blend with a lot of relatively honest grains.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Ultra easy, very (too) light, on caramel, dried fruits, coconut and vanilla.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Mouth ultra diluted but good, on caramel, plum, vanilla and milk chocolate.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Finish very short and soft, a little caramel and vanilla. The main defect of this whiskey.

    • Nose
      Sweet; Vanilla; Fruit; Malt; light woody oak note with a touch of Rauc
    • Taste
      Soft and gentle start. Nut and malt in the foreground. Very sweet and soft with a hint of smoke
    • Finish
      Herb; Oak; spices; Nut; Malt. Everything comes together pretty quickly.
      The woody remains long with a light, bitter touch

    Decent quaffer - not badly priced either if you wish to slowly dip into Lethe...

  8. larswehmeier scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet malt. Pleasant oak flavor. Over it a very fine hint of smoke. Surprisingly expressive and exciting nose!
    • Taste
      Due to the low alcohol content milder but at the same time tasty strong spicy onset. The light smoke is also evident on the palate. Significantly less sweet than in the nose. A lot of oak. Some cocoa.
    • Finish
      Mid long. Drying. Dark.

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    Firstly subtle hint of dry sherry notes., thought not
    obvious but is lingering at the back. Soft floral and honey with sweet
    cereal predominate on the nose. Palate:- Gentle with mild honey and floral fragrant. Sticky cola sweet
    derive from the peat. Hints of oaks and grains echoing on the palate.

    Finish:- Velvety and crisp. Medium length, subtle smokes.
