  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Too one dimensional for a 17 year old, any grain he is. Enthusiasm 2/5 Whiskey n ° 1273
    • Nose
      Fairly neutral. A little vanilla. A hint of herbs. Some fresh berries make a brief appearance. It's not crazy.
    • Taste
      Fleeting note of unexpected smoke, but then, much more agreed, on vanilla. It is rather flexible.
    • Finish
      Short.

  3. Jean-Brice scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    a grain without real defects even if short in the mouth
    • Nose
      Grain, veleda felt, coconut
    • Taste
      fluid but mellow
    • Finish
      short

  4. Murxus scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    not really worth to be bottled for itself.
    Perhaps useful for mixing drinks with its creamy charakter, if the bitter note is not to disturbing.

  5. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Drinkable. No more and no less. No wonder that is good as a basis for blends. But even after 16 years, not somehow interesting or independent - it takes Grain probably much more time or other barrels.
    • Nose
      soft and mild, grainy-sweet, vanilla, light citrus notes
    • Taste
      Very sweet, again cereal (biscuit), vanilla, slightly sour, reminiscent of these biplane biscuits with white filling
    • Finish
      medium long, caramel, slightly burnt-bitter
