    More than a fine blend that tastes nice and fruity and never really becomes a punishment.

      Smooth, silky, slightly sweet nose. Vanilla, honey, caramel. Some fresh fruit. Apples. There is a bit of alcoholism. Pretty intense.

  5. TomHagen scored this whisky 71 points Expert Junior

    For the price, not bad. Noticeable sweetness - caramel, fruit (apple, pear, plum), some wood.
    For me, however, it has a downside - some metal? And the finish leaves a feeling of roughness and metallicity on the tongue.
    But very good with Coke.
    Overall a good whiskey for partying and drinking.

  6. Frion83 scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: Malt, a drop of honey, a little prunes and overripe peaches. Metal
    Taste: Dried fruit compote with prunes, malt and dry herbs. Slightly mineral. Metallic taste
    Finish: Short. Hay, a little nuts and a hint of sherry
    Simple but not bad, if not for the metallic notes it would be much better 73.5

  7. ThorstenH scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    The vanilla dominates. In addition, light pear notes in the glass after a while.

  13. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Pretty bottle, but for € 25's better whiskeys. And just as good for less than half. A blender. Do not smell great, quickly topple over, maybe with ice, because he may "work". But already at the cozy side scooter, if one "accidentally" times tastes more accurate, he should fall through already.
    • Nose
      Tart, lightly smoky-kräutrig, some toffee sweetness, with time more and more solvent and metallic sharpness, rather flat
    • Taste
      Goes off nicely - earthy, leathery, a touch of raisin and caramel, but hecky - bitter, artificial, thin mouthfeel
    • Finish
      short, bitter, spicy, with a lot of imagination some coffee
