    Fine daily dram. Smooth and some tropical fruit

  2. TomSawyer scored this whisky 76 points Newbie

    Consistently soft, maybe a little too soft and therefore a bit one-dimensional. A promising fruity composition of pears and apricots quickly unfolds in a watery-floral start. The pleasantly warm feeling of jam is interestingly complemented by a pungent counterbalance of chili and freshly stained oak. The pungent note becomes increasingly dominant and soon completely overwhelms any fruit association. For a brief moment the whiskey is almost strong and maybe even bulky, but the spicy-chemical aromas quickly and abruptly withdraw and pleasantly sweet notes of hot milk with honey and warm vanilla pudding take over the taste event - cozy, but too harmless to to be really interesting. Traces of liquorice and cough drop in the aftertaste round off the experience, but are dosed too homeopathically to change the overall impression: gentle alone is not an exciting concept, the clear edge is missing.
