  1. rottendon scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Find that for 22, - € completely OK! Soap stuff, no noteworthy mistakes, nothing that really bothers you, I give 79 points. Small correction, the rest of the glass, I found it a bit intrusively sour, especially in the finish, 78 points. Notes from an online chat tasting.
    • Nose
      First fresh, fruity and malty. Now also herbs and a bit gym. I'm positively surprised! Life harmonizes with something, fruity. From the nose not bad, alcohol I have not at all. Warmth brings fullness and caramel.
    • Taste
      Amazingly strong, pepper right at the front, as well as a few herbs that are even stronger behind, the cocoa I find, in addition a lot of honey, no fruit. I do not think that's overly cute either. The mouthfeel is not as watery as feared, but in the second sip there is a lot of tin.
    • Finish
      But he is quickly gone, especially harsh, hm, actually only very dry ...
      No appreciable reheating. In the second sip, acid settles on the palate and traces of residual sweetness are also to be found.

  2. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Simple drinking whisky, without special features, with neat PLV.
    • Nose
      Slightly fruity with pear, fresh citrus notes, alcohol clearly present. The fruit notes fade over time.
    • Taste
      Rather thin. Fruit with pear, a little pineapple, vanilla, slightly hot like pepper.
    • Finish
      short to medium, fruit notes go by fast, a little bitterness and cocoa remain.

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Ordinary entry-NAS, for 22 ¬ you can not complain, rather the opposite, compared to similar qualities of other distilleries that is Saubillig ,.
    • Nose
      sweet and fresh fruity, vanilla, lemon, some pineapple & fudge, gets sweeter with time and the fruitiness goes back
    • Taste
      a bit fruity-sourish with a slight bitterness on the onset, goes in the direction of green apple peel, then fudge and black pepper (but more of a taste, not very hot), if left in the mouth for a long time, pushes cocoa neat after
    • Finish
      short pungency, medium caramel to cocoa

  4. Othorion scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Drinkable, and ok for the price, but not anymore!
    • Nose
      Malt, warm vanilla pudding, caramel, fruity, sour, pineapple, lemon, yeast dough and spicy honey.
    • Taste
      Black pepper, honey, a little vanilla, bright fruits so towards apple and pear, but everything paler than the nose would suggest. Rather watery in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Quite short, some seasoning, some pepper, some caramel

  5. dRambo scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    In terms of price, this is a good stand-alone malt, the Brennereicharakter is not quite my thing, I think it's a little demanding - at least if you want to get to know him properly
    • Nose
      Vanilla and dry oak stands over the glass, including a vinous fruity tart note (is probably the Brennereicharakter - I've found in the port 14 and so it's only my 2nd Tomatin - the note is not typical for the Fassaß used, but they is very dominant) - the nose reminds me more of a dry sherry or sauternes finish - bourbon and virgin oak I find little or no.
    • Taste
      gentle, round, quite mild, slightly thin, not alcoholic, a little sweet, light touch of mint, some ethereal resin, fresh tingling oak with medium intensity, tree juice, vegetal - slightly tart aromas, the acidity of the nose is also chewing a bit on the palate - it bothers me a bit - as it displaces the delicate pleasant oak flavors ... with more air in the mouth during intense "chewing" are also from time to time tart fresh woody notes - then comes power, chocolate, coffee - if you just drink it - you do not get to know this page.
    • Finish
      fruity wine aromas with minimal acidity, rising increasing bitterness - which stays just pleasant and gives volume, dull, dusty - dry woodiness, runs out in a light chocolate - mint note, cocoa powder becomes more and more intense with each further sip

  8. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    It’s less watery than expected, and not too bad for the price. Overall it’s a nice easy sipper, but maybe a tad too young.
    • Nose
      Butterscotch and malty at first. Fresh lemon juice, oranges and unripe pears, pineapple too. It’s quite young I would say. Honey in the background, a touch of ginger. It’s not too bad actually.
    • Taste
      Vanilla and caramel fudge, it’s quite creamy in the beginning. Fresh grass. Lemons. Honey. But also a bit peppery. A hint of cocoa powder. A herbal note in the background.
    • Finish
      Short, caramel and cocoa powder. And a hint of lemons again.
