  1. Lorion scored this whisky 64 points Connoisseur

    Completely okay, but certainly not a sign of masterful craftsmanship either. 64 points.
    • Nose
      A sweet vanilla, scented, some grain. Yellow apples.
    • Taste
      Soft, grainy, a restrained sweetness.
    • Finish
      Rather short, pleasantly sweet.

  3. hans1971 scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    little depth, not my taste

  4. VLG scored this whisky 36 points Expert Junior


  5. Globomanni scored this whisky 68 points Expert Junior

    Lots of caramel, a little grapes, citrusy on the palate

  6. Malthead19 scored this whisky 67 points Connoisseur

    - a blend with interesting characteristics
    - You can't taste or smell the grain directly
    - nevertheless in all rather pale and very reserved
    - one should not look for strong and/or fruity ones
    Drink whiskeys, otherwise he totally fades and
    goes down
    - drinkable but doesn't knock me out
    - suitable as everyday whiskey or mixed drink (for that
    actually too expensive)
    - should have been stored in the barrel for a few more years
    - at €30 for 0.5 L, it is clearly too expensive for the quality
    • Nose
      rather pale, oak, wood note in the foreground, slight sweetness in the background, honey, malty, little to no hint of a den grain
    • Taste
      Slightly creamy on the palate, oily character, light fruity notes towards raisins, still seems quite young, rough and unbalanced, alcoholic pungency still clearly noticeable despite only being 40%
    • Finish
      short strong finish ;
      medium-long finish with oak and subtle dry fruits, astringent

  7. Picio scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    No taste and finish. And it’s not covid

  8. Ben008 scored this whisky 68 points Expert Senior

    Refreshing, light, a little too light in character and flavor

  12. Lumpowitz scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Sweet and fruity with preserved apricot, pear and some oak. There is also a rather annoying metallic note.
    • Taste
      Even sweeter than in the nose. Vanilla, malt, slightly light fruit, also here a trace of metal.
    • Finish
      Dry, slightly dry and spicy. Noticeable oak.

  14. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The next Japanese, who worries me in the nose, this turns out to be really a drinkable solution, at the price I can not even say anything except "shame on the nose".
    • Nose
      Am I crazy or is the cheese (Parmesan?) In my nose? Regretted fruits, but bright, moldy apricot, I'm sorry, but otherwise I can not describe it, vanilla, hay, some white wine, very difficult to classify the thing, raw gesture, birch bark
    • Taste
      Need something until it unfolds in the mouth, first aromatic dried fruit, a little perfumed acting as some Japanese do it, apricot, peach become stronger, pear, yellow apple, something maritimes in between, sweet malt and grass, some spicy young oak, rock candy
    • Finish
      Tasty dried fruit with malt and sweetness, short to medium long, well you can
