  1. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    It’s starts with spices, toffee, dried fruits, stewed apples and cinnamon notes on nose. The palate is a smooth and spicy with dried fruits, cacao, citrus notes. The long finish is a spicy and sweet with dried fruits and vanilla notes. It’s an one of my favourite rye whiskey!

    Awesome rye that is suitable for both slowly sipping as well as an ingredient for a great old fashioned.

  6. coldsun scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Rich notes of oak, spices, sweet rye and corn, caramel and dried fruits. Taste is bold (continues flavor and adds bold butter elements).

    N- Nutty, liquorice, berries cough syrup and spicy. Fruity part that evolved to strawberry with minted chocolate and pink peppercorn. Spicy as it should be with well restrained sweet aroma. Layer of mineral sphere, refine soft oak. (88/22)

    P- Punchy pure lemonade without sugar. Chocolaty oak with moderate tongue fuming sensation, spicy with well rounded creamy orange and berries. Pleasant to swirl the liquid on the palate despite the 100 proof strength. (89/22)

    F- Wee short to medium with lasting mellow spiciness, orange-y gooseberry, liquorice, crisp spearmint, dry and tasty. (86/20)

    Body/Balance- 89/22

    Weighted Rate- 86pt

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A very pleasant surprise. More fruit than spices, so to speak. Very enjoyable neat, and quite affordable indeed (around 40 EUR).
    • Nose
      I first smell the grain in the guise of brown bread, corn flakes and oatmeal. Then some fruit follows, mostly of the dried variety. Think peaches and banana. Surprisingly soft for a rye whiskey.
    • Taste
      Hmm, this is good! Vivid palate on oranges, nougat and toffee, while the spices take their sweet time to warm your mouth. Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, pepper and cocoa: they each play their role. Again, surprisingly soft for a rye whiskey.
    • Finish
      In the finish – which sadly is quite short – the sweet, dried fruits are best experienced.

    Surprisingly strong and tasty drink. Smell and taste notes are rich and contains oak, freshness, rye, corn, caramel and dried fruits. Finish is rich and long as well.
