  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Typical Signatory Refill-Speysider middle-aged - not overly individual, but tasty, tasty and priced fairly with 48 €, something you can always dahabe for upscale-comfortable drinking with friends.
    • Nose
      takes a little time in the glass and a drop of water to open does not hurt, then sweet, yellow apple, pear compote, a touch of banana, light honey, cereals, sawdust and a very slight hay and herbal notes
    • Taste
      in the beginning overripe banana, then caramel, milk chocolate to milk coffee, first very creamy, but in the mouth is always dry, spicy, again sawdust, dusty, reminiscent of white pepper almost without the sharpness
    • Finish
      medium long, white pepper, sawdust, coffee, a hint of milk chocolate

  4. pianoman scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      At first restrained and easy. Yellow apple, lemon, unripe banana, hay, some malt. Light wood, a hint of mint.
    • Taste
      Malty with light spice and some chocolate. A trace of smoke. Dry.
