    A dram for starter, for those who want to change the achievements of supermarkets, believing to find a rare pearl!
    • Nose
      spices, side pastry, vanilla, honey and malt
    • Taste
      a rendering almost bitter, spicy, the pastry side disappears, a little vinous sensation, vanilla again, a little dust!
    • Finish
      short, and fast and simple!

    Not bad at all, but nothing exceptional either.

    Walnuts and honey at the end are very pleasant.
    • Nose
      Nothing extreme here. Some light oranges, a little sweet malt, some grassy undertones. No, or at least very little smoke.
    • Taste
      Dry oakyness, sweet fudge and mild spice.
    • Finish
      Oak and fudge merge into fat walnuts and round off into pure sweet honey.

  6. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    So the good: I do not have to choke. ;-)
    Nope, he does not do hardship. Not even for party to run away. I have already drunk a few cheaps and am very tolerant, but ... no.
    • Nose
      strangely artificial (plastic? plasticizer? paint?), dusty-dry wood, dead grass, very light nut / caramel note
    • Taste
      short, a creamy caramel notes say "hello", but before you can look forward to it, it's again artificial, slightly sprittig, but still quite flat and ...
    • Finish
      ... bitter. Not very long, but not nice. Bitter, dry, and a touch of chemistry.

  7. HunterRomario scored this whisky 62 points Expert Senior

    The worst Scotch blend I've ever drank. The impression is precarious, I did not really expect it.
    • Nose
      Oddly varnish scent, with some nuts. Otherwise, where nothing, nothing, odorless alcoholic odor, maybe dull. (55 b)
    • Taste
      Sweet taste, again nuts, but the impression is very thin, shallow, as if someone drove Ballantinka Finest. (69 b)

    Very smooth blended whisky.
    • Nose
      Quite light and smooth. There are notes of mixed peels and cereals, a little caramel sweetness and a touch of dryness.
    • Taste
      There is caramel sweetness, a touch of oak and a wisp of smoke, a little nut note develops.
    • Finish
      Medium-length with developing oaked dryness.
