  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Easy and fruity whisky, quiet pleasant surprise actually.
    • Nose

      It starts a little unpleasant, some sour fruits. But give it some time, and things get a lot better.
      Fresh green apples, fruity.

      Again very fruity and light. Apples, some light citrus. A bit weak, could have had a bit higher Abv.
    • Finish
      81 81
      A little short, fruits again, apples.

      BANANA! Banana porridge with redcurrant compote. Very fruity. Not sharp.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Banana and fruitiness remains. Very mild, almost liqueur.
    • Finish
      75 75
      Short. A little bit of spice comes to it. Fruit remains.

  4. metropolis13 scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    the nose betrays its youth but the mouth is a little more original
    • Nose
      Near a distillate with a lot of white fruit
    • Taste
      Less fruity than the nose, more marked by the grilled almond
    • Finish
      Court...

  5. Jean-Brice scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    not disgusting but too young ...
    • Nose
      Spirit, apples, pears
    • Taste
      slightly oily, fruity
    • Finish
      short
