  1. Kilo1 scored this whisky 65 points Expert Junior

    Good whiskey, the region feels, the color is very pale straw, it is quite possible to get if the price does not bite.

    This is almost the colour of white wine and being completely honest it is too watery for me, that is my first impression.
    It then gets really creamy with some decent white fruit notes.
    A session dram if ever there was one, light & fruity and gets better after your mouth gets used to the thinness.

      Very watery. Could profit a lot from 43% or 46% abv.

    Very accessible card players’ whisky. Nothing earth shattering, but dangerously quaffable. Around 30 EUR.
    • Nose
      It smells young. Very young. Apples, pears and some apricots with a very delicate hint of peat. Some fish oil and a jute sack in the background. But very soft if not too soft. It does nothing for me.
    • Taste
      The arrival is soft and fresh, softly spiced – with a salty lining – but candy-like sweet. Barley sugar, apples, pears and again some apricots. The peat gives just a tad of smoke. Vanilla becomes quite big.
    • Finish
      The finish is rather short, with the sweet smoke lingering the longest.

    Very inoffensive - almost too little depth of flavour. 
    • Nose
      Not a great deal on the nose - almost inhaled it - certinly not pungent.
    • Taste
      Very smooth - tiptoes over one's tongue and then disappears.
    • Finish
      A dram that wears ballet shoes and soon disappears leaving barely a memory.

  8. VicLin scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Virtually nothing.
    Palate: Well that's not that bad, and easy to drink like many other blends. 
    Finish: Relatively short. 

    Conclusion: Unlike most blends that are better in nose but terrible in palate (in my opinion) this one is exactly the other way wrong. Interesting in this sense but overall no need to pay money for this.
