  1. nhuber scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    bit of a strange one.... unsteady in the nose, some off notes in the mouth, doesnt go away with water, but brings out a coffee note....definitely interesting, but not an easy one and definitely not one I would buy...

    • Nose
      Marzipan, surimi, coconut and grain cookie.
    • Taste
      Malty and fruity, but also that strange fishy salty note that I can only describe as surimi sticks. Blood orange and later vanilla cookie. With water some dough.
    • Finish
      Coconut cookie, vanilla and apple.

  7. Georges scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Light, delicate, fruity (oranges, pears, pineapple)
    • Taste
      Sweet, creamy, vanilla, fruity (grapefruit)
    • Finish
      Rather short, fruity, herbs, peppery

  8. ottos scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Not my cup of tea. All the nice flavours are very shy and overwhelmed by a bitter and plastic flavour.
    • Nose
      Crème brulee, liquorice, grass, tinned fruits. It's all whispering.
    • Taste
      Quite oily, grass, some off notes (plastic?) it seems. Some liquorice. It's quite bitter and reminds me a bit of Irish malts... not my favorites.
    • Finish
      Medium and quite bitter.

  9. Butei scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    easy to drink, just the right intensity although not too complex.

    sample with the compliments of WB shop. Thanx guys
    • Nose
      lots of fruit & black peper
    • Taste
      Spicy, liquorice, very nice smooth taste
    • Finish
      taste keeps hanging in, not too long though
