  1. Astrid scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Unmistakable, has its (positive) characteristics. However, very spicy on the tongue. You can let it breathe a little.

      sweet smoke (the wood ash version), only rather strong then it resigns in favor of other aromas, fruity sherry and alcohol with hints of dry fruit, vanilla, chopped hazelnuts and walnuts, with whole milk chocolate, (apple) cider, sugar syrup and guava, later also lightly toasted oak, banana jelly / cream and kiwi, orange, mild

    • Finish

      Cereals, smoke, hardly any sweetness, again nut chocolate this time with grapes, spicy with pepper and oregano, a few tannins, not particularly long or intense but tasty and animating

  2. Kaleva scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Good whisky, solid entry-level single malt. Typical bourbon character without any major flaws - quite balanced although rather simple. I didn’t like light oaky bitterness but it’s a matter of taste. Anyways it’s a good Frenchman, which is not worse than Scotch competitors.
    • Nose
      Fresh, fruity (apple mash, green pears, fruit acid drops), tad malty, vanilla, butter toffee, red currants, honey, hint of french baguette, very light oaky notes on the background
    • Taste
      Malty, slightly spicy, cereals, porridge, red berry jam, green tea, slightly bitter oak
    • Finish
      Medium-long, oaky tannins, apple seeds, porridge, light sweetness at the end
