  1. Opeth83 scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Weak, flat, malt whisky. Nose is ok, but taste and finish are very thin, flat and short.

  3. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    Soft whisky, soft price. Good aperitif.
    • Nose
      Very flat and nothing giving away, but that's only for what my nose concerns.
    • Taste
      A lot spicier than expected. There's a light young freshness and some sweetness but it hasn't enough body and it's far too watery despite the spicy start.
    • Finish
      Short finish.

  5. Jeig scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    Subtle nose, no alcoholic note. Palate is pungent, fresh oak, spices, green fruits. Finish is bitter sweet, short finish. Rather too young for drinking neat, but could be a good mixer.

  6. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 75 points Expert Junior

    Brief:
    Pleasantly sweet, vanilla, but somehow thin and still hot. Short finish.
    Drinkable, without other positive characteristics.
