14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.88 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Classic Palteni style, bright, sunny, aroma slightly lagging behind the taste / finish, but overall it is a cool, balanced whisky, friendly and open, simple, which does not detract from its merits.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, woody-mineral notes - planed board, dried plaster; some fresh grass, lemon peel, coated tablets, vanilla, dusty books, lollipops - despite the modest palette, the aroma is solid and dense.
    • Taste
      Dense, rich, bright and juicy woody notes, roasted nuts, leather goods, a little salt, sweet creamy tones, a little astringency of the bark, pipe tobacco, lemon peel in sweet tea, ginger, radish, light industrial shades.
    • Finish
      Mild, refreshing, woody lemon, mint, vanilla, light notes of ginger, tobacco and leather goods.

  4. sUrs scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    A very nice whisky!
    • Nose
      First, an apple scent rises and then there is an ever more intense orange flavor in the nose. Also white grapes (sultanas) and vanilla can be seen.
    • Taste
      A round note of honey falls on, then it is even sweeter and the white chocolate joins. In the background I think I recognize the scent of the sea (a bit salty?)
    • Finish
      Very elegant, soft finish, which also has something spicy at the same time.

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    An independent surgery, if you like banana and pear and do not be afraid of some oak and pepper, is well served here.
    • Nose
      Citric acid, fresh white grapes, sea air, slightly unripe banana, light honey, some orange zest, vanilla and white tea, white chocolate
    • Taste
      Fine, gentle salt, beautiful oak notes, flower field, banana ice cream, vanilla and light honey, some white pepper, light malt, all pretty round with beautiful light, spicy tops, light grapes, some lemon zest
    • Finish
      A little pear, light honey, white pepper, light malt, dry-salty, medium-long

  8. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      A nice and deep vanilla sweetness. Light seabreeze and banana.
    • Taste
      More power in here comparing to the 12 and 17 year old. More pepper and wood tones. Less sweetness but still sweet enough. Less balance than the others I mentioned before. Not a bad drink but I prefer the 12 and 17 year old. This one is a little to harsh in the mouth for me.
    • Finish
      Medium oak finish with a little salt.

  9. Abadon05 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    So for a NAS and in the price range quite delicious.
    • Nose
      Lemon, a little orange, grape, honey, a light alcoholic touch, banana and salt. Quite interesting and tasty. He makes you want more.
    • Taste
      Salt with honey, slightly light.
    • Finish
      Medium long with some dryness in combination with salt and a sweetness. Add to that the banana and the grape. And there is a slight spice spreading, which is probably due to the 46%.
