  2. zaphod155 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    With its light fruitiness and refreshing sharpness, it is certainly a nice summer whiskey.
    • Nose
      Fresh grass, citrus fruit, vanilla, some Granny Smith, delicate ginger notes, hints of milk chocolate and blossom honey. Cedarwood and many sweet, bright fruits. Fresh, cooling aromas, clear and light.
    • Taste
      Right at the start honey sweetness, followed by fresh ginger sharpness. Here comes now dark chocolate, to the citrus fruits. The vanilla comes through only slightly. The sweetness keeps the balance with the bittersweet note and the sharpness.
    • Finish
      Right on. The dark chocolate lasts a long time.

    Similar to Haig Club - a little over-priced for what it is.  I am unaware of the age but the slightly higher ABV of 42 doesn't rescue it.

  4. holborndrinker scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    Quite an anonymous dram for the money - you can get better blends for half the price.
    • Nose
      The first impression was of TCP or Dettol, then a slight hint of fruit.
    • Taste
      Nothing stands out in particular but a slight sweetness as it goes down.
    • Finish
      Not particularly unplesant but nothing lingers.

  5. mishadoff scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    In general, a good whiskey, fairly spicy, but for the same price, there are more pleasant analogs both among blends and single malts.
    • Nose
      Spirituoznost, green grass, a little bit of vanilla, a mix of fruits.
    • Taste
      The taste is pleasant, sweet, cereal. Vanilla, bitter citrus.
    • Finish
      Short, sweet with a fruity taste (unexpected!)

    Odor: sourdough, grass, hay, vanilla, light smoke, licorice with sugar

    Taste: mild sweet, malty, grassy, ​​barely noticeable in the mouth, tastes pleasant

    Finish: long-lasting malt flavor, some anise

    Verdict: Not bad at all, but way too thin

  7. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    different, but not bad, so not an "untrinkbarer Jung-industrial", could also be good on ice in the summer
    • Nose
      very short solvent stitch, but it is quickly gone, then fresh vanilla-lemony sweetness
    • Taste
      not sharp or metallic, as you might expect, but mild, creamy, sweet, rather simple and straightforward, after a while even some barrel influence, some caramel and a slight exotic-spicy note
    • Finish
      well, a little bitter ;-)
