  1. PaulDvorak scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Very nice, drinkable and tender jam-apricot malt. But the finish line somewhere completely failed, as if there is none. The rest is good.
    • Nose
      Sweet apricot jam, candied peaches, orange liquor, fresh dried apricots, fruit lollipops, delicate pastries with cream, caramel.
    • Taste
      Sweet, fruity, very tender and pleasant, dessert. Toast with butter and apricot jam, orange jam, sweets.
    • Finish
      Short, completely empty for sixteen, not complex, where did he go at all. Dried fruits in sugar, honey, apricots, wood, caramel.

    Oooch, well, a simple Speysiderprofil with roses on top. Not bad, but nothing special.

  9. diamond2000 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: dried fruits, honey, autumn leaves, coffee latte, lemonade "dyushes", tobacco leaf, toffee, milk chocolate, fresh mint, some flowers, roasted walnuts, a little perfume.
    Taste: cotton candy, coffee with milk, nuts (walnut, wood, cashew), a little honey and oak.
    Finish: a bit short, lollipops, honey, oak tannins, bitterness, very gentle, almost airy.
    Rating: 84
    The result: a very pleasant aroma and taste, but the finish on their background is very lightweight, it is sad, the commercial fortress sometimes spoils the whisky. In general, a good, understandable, no sharp corners molt, corresponding to its stated age.
