    The age of the wine should be very young. The aroma is better than expected. The sweetness of the sweetness is pleasing. In the young Bourbon barrel, the tonality of the creamy nut has appeared, but it is slightly deliberately becoming a little intimate with the fruity flavor. Requested

    Very sharp. Little depth. Good for by the coke.

    Easy drink without off-notes, cheap but good value.

      Lots of white fruit with a soft floral undertone, ending with a bit of malt. Noncomplex but agreeable.
    • Taste
      75 75
      White fruit remains dominant, now joined by some wood, pretty dry and uninteresting. Obviously watered down.
    • Finish

      Very short and dry, mostly nutty.

    Very cheap - very young - very easy!
    • Nose
      light, fruity (green apple, pear), some malt;
    • Taste
      Soft onset, fruity (apples, grapes), subtle spiciness, young and simple, but without off-flavors!
    • Finish
      very short, fruity finish;

  6. coldsun scored this whisky 25 points Expert Senior

    Flavor is very weak with elements of caramel, vanilla, flowers and prunes. Taste has notes of oak and flowers. Finish is weak, malty and vanilla.
    Actually it is simple but pleasant whisky just to drink and relax.

  8. Captain.Islay scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    Provides for its price more than I expected. No miss notes, uncomplicated, alcohol relatively well integrated. In the long run to one-dimensional, but as a calibration dram, for savers or beginners a good choice. Many NAS blends are preferable.
    • Nose
      Malt, honey, pear, lemon, fresh, light
    • Taste
      Cereals, apple, pear, oak, light biter on the tongue
    • Finish
      Short, soft, dry, hazelnut

    This was from a fresh bottle but it tastes like 30% rather than 40%.I know its cheap, light & fresh and not supposed to be complex but in reality it was just far too weak to be enjoyable, it tastes like someone has already put far too much water in it.
