  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 88 points Photo Moderator

    Overall very drinkable and enjoyable. Water is recommended if it's too punchy as it doesn't loose quality with it.
    • Nose
      This is actually a very positive surprise - deep and rich aromas from honey, fresh wood, apricots and few other fruits. I can't stop sniffing this whisky.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, honey, sweet oak wood. Smooth, oily but still punchy - all pretty well balanced.
    • Finish
      Medium long with this pleasant wood notes.

    One of the best blended and not peaty whisky by now. The alcohol content is almost hidden by the balance of the taste
