3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.33 points

  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Not overpowering in either flavour or strength. Very decent but not a top rate. Best served if you hold it in your mouth before releasing.
    • Nose
      Kiwifruit? hint of mustiness but the strength makes it hard to penetrate the subtleties before being overpowered
    • Taste
      after max 10s holding at front of mouth I had to open and then a glorious sweetness develops with a slight popcorn
    • Finish
      peaches; medium spicy finish

    Not bad but the grainy style becomes obvious
    • Nose
      Citrusy, lemony, honey, barley, spices, little grassy, wet hay
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, subtle sweetness
    • Finish
      Long, burning, a tad bitter in the end
