  1. PaulDvorak scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Sensible, delicious malt. Nice nose with an interesting shade of a flooded wooden hut. Cozy one or something.
    • Nose
      Bright and ripe, sweet red apple, dry bananas and dried apricots, vanilla and the smell of a heated wooden hut.
    • Taste
      Honey, more tart woody shades are added, vanilla with pepper.
    • Finish
      Rich, the sweetness of ripe apples, malt and astringency of a piece of wood.

    Taste: medium bodied, well rounded, citrusfruits, fruitcake, some mild chocolate and sherry notes.
