  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Who comes up with that? For whom? In the supermarket for 10-15 € I let the go through, but 25 ¬ - nope, because I have no target audience.
    • Nose
      rustic, cereals, bread, medium smoke, a bit old railway sleepers and car repair shop, slightly metallic, out of round, young ... after a while, the smoke evaporates, then comes through some caramel and Zirtone, slightly sprittig
    • Taste
      Caramel, with a lot of imagination something artificial orange aroma, a touch of cheap bourbon, the quite strong sweetness already feels creamy, but there is also something dirty-scratchy-smoky-peppery
    • Finish
      dirty-scratchy-peppery with some cocoa bitterness

  2. GJR scored this whisky 72 points Connoisseur

    Combination of Scottish, Canadian and American. Passed ... mmmm no not. Nice gadget or in the summer with a load of ice or ginger ale .....
    • Nose
      Young, but best all dark smells. A lot of grains, rye (slightly sour, but also leather) Raisins in brandy, fairly sweet.
    • Taste
      Light and subtle, fruit and again those raisins in brandy. Sweet with lots of granularity and forest fruits. Bit like a muesli breakfast with forest fruits yogurt.
    • Finish
      Short and flat. Imbalance in relation to nose and taste.

  5. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Tasted blind. Had typed on Speyside or Highlands, but this beautiful - unusual accompaniment note I know of Scottish whiskeys actually not.
    • Nose
      Very youthful. Citrus fruits, cloves, cinnamon, unripe apples, leather, unmalted barley
    • Taste
      Riper than the nose. Mild and balanced. Sweet and warm with light spices and herbs. Is accompanied by an interesting note: rape honey?
    • Finish
      Short and spicy, sweet - with salt margin
