  1. Archer scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Despite its only 41%, it gives off some aromas, both in the nose and on the tongue. The finish is not too short, only the Madeira barrel is not to be seen in my opinion.

    -Blindtasting-
    • Nose
      83 83
      Fresh and extremely fruity nose, apple scent, mirabelle plums, fresh peaches. Honey and vanilla, some fresh wood. Leaf green, hay. The fruit notes become sweeter over time, seem to mix with the honey.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Very mild onset, dry, much more spicy than the nose. The freshness from the nose gives way to pleasant, dry wood aromas. Nevertheless, the vomited fruit can also be found on the tongue, only more reserved, more subdued. Spices of tart herbs as well as thyme and bay leaves spread throughout the mouth. Vanilla powder, rapeseed honey, toffee, milk coffee. Raisins in sweet liqueur over time.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Although mild on the tongue, it still makes steam out for a long time. Dry, woody, spicy, slightly tart, with dried fruit, vanilla and forest honey.

    Notes from a blind tasting
    • Nose
      Granaries, hops, light grapes and a slight touch of wine gum. With light citrus notes. Limes, tangerines. Vanilla and forest honey lie in the background. After a while, spruce needles and mead are added
    • Taste
      Very light, almost watery. The aromas only come gradually. Sour apples, peach, dried hops, thyme, bay leaves and freshly cut wood. Gradually cloves and a slightly peppery sharpness join. Slightly fragrant with a "bourbon glue note".
    • Finish
      Malty and fruity with hints of apples and spices. Slightly metallic.

    Young on the nose. Lots of, let's say too much bubble gum in the nose. Combined with a hint of metallic youth. So nevertheless we give it a try. Oh, that's nice at first. If it would be a medium priced fruit brandy. A lot of fruit in there, but also that fruity bubble gum. Cherries and strawberrie in particular. And then it's gone immediately.

    Maybe a dram for a summer evenening after a very hot day. Apart from that, nah!

  10. RJKrueger scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A well drinkable entry-level whisky, balanced and fresh with an approximately six-month Madeira finish, which provides a little more excitement. It would be nice if there was a little more resonance at the end.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Fresh, light notes of green apple, pear, apricot, citrus and some banana. Nice aromas for a spring / summer whisky.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Very fresh and balanced, easy to drink even for non-whisky connoisseurs. The finish in the Madeira barrels creates a bit of complexity, otherwise it falls off slightly compared to the first impression on the nose. More reminiscent of a light Irish than a Scottish whisky.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Very short finish, which leaves little of the taste, only a little vanilla and honey remain for a moment.
