  3. AdamsB scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    It is worth a try, cause the distillery sows its own barley itself, which results in a very creamy and butter whisky.

  4. Allandale scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Easy drink, no complexity.
    • Nose
      Rather closed, with just the malted sweetness coming through.
    • Taste
      Light, grassy and sweet with notes of green apple and lemon.
    • Finish
      Medium length and slightly drying with the lemon notes remaining.

  5. schengel10 scored this whisky 62 points Connoisseur

    A very simple, uncomplicated Single Malt!
    • Nose
      light citrus aromas, floral, malty, slight alcohol note;
    • Taste
      Sweetish, citrus-fresh onset, slightly sourish aromas, marked youth, on the palate malty;
    • Finish
      a short finish with citrus fruits in the reverberation;

    It’s time to embrace said ‘classic’, received as a Christmas present in 2016.

    C: An easy one ideal for home blending. Keep it open for a while and it’s not totally offensive, and begins to open into a reasonable sipper or hip flask option. Saying that, I gave this away myself.

    • Nose
      A mild note of oak barrel and delicate vanilla.
    • Taste
      Yes, nothing special. But the overwhelmed also no ... In the taste a little spicy, not very exhausting. Rather easy-going and soft. Very nice wood notes.

  10. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A solid-quality, but young, single malt with strong initial green notes. As it opens, the quality of the spirit becomes more evident with floral notes and a bitter-sweet taste. I found that its green notes were never over-powering, and that it was pleasantly complex for its age.
