  1. Simon Stood scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior


  2. Ostap scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Absolutely not impressed. Mass commercial product for the unpretentious consumer.
    • Nose
      The apple theme dominates in all manifestations (both fresh, and baked, and in the form of juice, and in jam), grapes, alcoholic, an oven with apples.
    • Taste
      The taste is simple "like three kopecks", grain and dry.
    • Finish
      Short, dry, alcoholic, apple.

    chic nose, mix of barrels? or strictly bourbon? the taste is very watery, a couple of degrees would not hurt. dried aftertaste

    Pleasant, uncomplicated whisky
    • Nose
      Very sweet, with flavors of vanilla and plums.
    • Taste
      Again very sweet and mild. Fruity and a slight spiciness.
    • Finish
      Again the sweet plums in combination with oak seasoning. Becomes drier towards the end.

    This is really bad.

    Neat, bad.
    Add ice, bad too.
    Add water, even worse.

    Avoid at all cost.

    Meh. Not worth its price.
    • Nose
      78 78
      Light nose, hints of the sherry casks but very discrete. Oak, caramel, raisins. Not very complex.
    • Taste
      75 75
      Watery texture, I don't understand why they keep bottling at 40% abv. Quite nutty. Vanilla, dried fruits, but the fruits are overpowered by the nutty taste. Quite muted.
    • Finish
      70 70
      Medium short, oaky, with a lingering bitterness. Not great.

  8. maltaholic scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    It smells of wood and sherry. Not very good, but goes.
    Something stands out, fermented fruit, pomace perhaps?

    Something furry in the mouth, almost like sloe.
    Something bitter, very spicy.

    He does not convince me.
    Since I had better of Macallan.
