  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Nice whiskey, which one does not notice the blend, for 40-50 € one could strike there, but current fancy prices -> completely gaga.
    • Nose
      Sweet, light acidity, first reminds a bit of mead, spices - cinnamon, cloves, ginger, goes in the direction of pumpkin compote ... with time less sweetness, but drier, woodier
    • Taste
      No acidity in the taste, but sweet and spicy, cloves are still there, honey, a bit fruity (between orange marmalade and peach compote), some pepper, nutty, goes already in the direction of bitter-walnut, has quite power and fullness
    • Finish
      medium long, warm and spicy, some orange and nougat also stick to the tongue

  8. tommy12 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    light color, pleasant fruity scent, oh unexpected slightly unpleasant smoky taste and light sweetness, light body, long to medium-long finish. The whiskey is completely overrated in my opinion and tastes only very below average.

  9. pianoman scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Restrained, elegant. Spring flowers, orange blossom, a trail of peach. Behind them are pears and yellow cherries. Lakeside, reeds. Champagne truffles.
    • Taste
      Lilac, lemons, honey, some caramel pudding. White chocolate, latte, a hint of root beer.

  10. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    a really good whiskey, which probably has been worth its issue price just once (you will find historical around 60 euros).
    • Nose
      very sweet, gentle, a spicy oak note, not unlike a high quality blend. Vanilla and nice fruit notes. Very round, it does not hurt anyone.
    • Taste
      beautiful approach, just right, very sweet at the beginning, almost syrupy, but then a bitter sweet mix of fruit notes, slightly sour flavors and spicy oak notes.
    • Finish
      bitter-sweet, fruit and oak a little bit adorned orange peel, the oak remains, but unfortunately not very long.
