    Too weak & lax, there is simply far too little.

  3. SushiCZ scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: The first thing that comes to mind is an apple, quite distinctive. Then vanilla and honey. A little young wood. All right, I'm not angry here.

    Taste: Very gentle. Biscuits in tea. Sweet cake, slightly fruity - oranges. It's very easy to drink, too easy.

    Finish: Relatively short, a little malty, quite sour and sweet citrus.

    Overall: Just think about the label - nice, old school, 18 years old, but also 40%. On the one hand, the old-type whisky is easy to drink, but it is unnecessarily cowardly, low percentage and very flat in taste. Whisky made "for sure" and unfortunately thus quite unforgettable.

  7. Astrid scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Very open and flowery, the age also comes into its own. Mild, but still stronger than I would have expected at 40% vol.
    • Nose
      fruity sweetness, vanilla and oak wood, banana and orange, caramel and biscuit, pineapple and other fresh citrus notes, bread and butter, prunes and aromatic apricots, cloves and coriander, cedar wood, lots of honey, apple and pear, blanched almonds and hints of salted peanuts
    • Taste
      light and malty, multi-layered oak wood with ground cloves, caramel, cedar wood, subtle tones of sherry and oranges, honey, slightly oily, vanilla and butter, ripe apples, apricot jam, a touch of leather and dark chocolate, traces of copper
    • Finish
      hardly bitter, rather spicy and fruity, malty dark chocolate, apple pie, light oak, cinnamon and clove, vanilla, apricot and orange peel, honey, banana, walnuts

  8. Malthead19 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    - delicious single malt
    - interesting and complex
    - maybe a little weak for 18 years, but still very drinkable
    • Nose
      very mild, soft, round, malty, caramel, toffee, sherry
    • Taste
      softer first fruity then bitter start, develops a lot of spice, tastes older and well ripened
    • Finish
      soft but powerful finish;
      medium-long, spicy, strong aftertaste

  9. schengel10 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A really nice, tasty, pleasant and good old malt, the logical increase of the 12 year old - but only slightly better!
    At 40% it is fairly thin, almost watery - it is reminiscent of an old blend!
    About 70.00 € / liter are too expensive for me!
    • Nose
      soft, malty, sweet, honey, caramel, yellow fruit, oak;
    • Taste
      sweet, mild approach, soft, oily, creamy, lots of honey, vanilla, pastries, melon, apricot, some oak;
    • Finish
      medium length, creamy, vanilla, honey;
