  2. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Not very interesting. Easy to drink. Worth its money.
    • Nose
      Fresh, light, fruity. In the foreground, hints of vanilla, grapefruit, plum and hot pepper are clearly felt. Deeper, there are not very pleasant chemical notes of plastic, dry dusty boards, wilted flowers.
    • Taste
      Sweet, watery. Caramel, cotton candy, plums, citrus fruits, black pepper.
    • Finish
      Short, simple, but not unpleasant. First - vanilla, sweet roll, some spicy spices. Then - dry oak, nuts with bitterness and lemon peels.
