  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    What a shredded whiskey! One wonders involuntarily, who buys such bottles in such large quantities that the mark still exists.
    • Nose
      Very pale fruits, malt, flowery.
    • Taste
      hardly reasonable notes detectable; especially bitter. quite weak alcohol; the salivation is strongly stimulated by the bitterness.
    • Finish
      at best medium long, a bit bitter

  2. peatbogger scored this whisky 68 points Specialist

    Not my favourite blend, too much grain.

    On the other hand it doesn't work as a substitute for irish in my coffee neither, as that brings out the "scotch" and make it bitter.

    OK in sweet long drinks and cocktails.
