  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Elegant first impression. Slightly increased alcohol in the nose, but not yet cooling. Very fruity at first. Cherries and dough are reminiscent of crumble cakes. Then it gets tart over time and shows the oak.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly light on the tongue. Mild approach. the red fruits are back with cherries and berries. But then the age and maturity are clearly shown with dry oak, which furry covers the palate.
    • Finish
      Pleasantly dry. Medium length. mild.

  2. Jeig scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    One of the best blended whisky. Easy to drink, and suitable for after dinner sipping. Great for beginner and intermediate drinker.

      Let the glass sits for a while and you'll be rewarded a great nose. A lot of sweetness, fruity, lean towards sherry profile.

      Round and smooth, no sharpness. Slightly sweet, not oily. The downside is low ABV, kind of watery .

      Medium aftertaste, no bitterness. Will make you wanted to have another glass.

    Enthusiasm 3/5
    Whiskey n ° 1376
    • Nose
      Caressing but already a little float, nothing but the nose. Not very intense However, we have a nice variety of aromas that develop gradually: caramel, cooked fruit, wood, coconut, flowers ... Everything is very nice but a little smooth.
    • Taste
      Very pleasant, on honey, a little milky texture, the aromas tend to settle. Dangerously drinkable though!
    • Finish
      Sweet spices, woody, medium length
