  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    The Chita is mostly a balanced whisky, especially on the nose, but the cask influence does go a little overboard at times.
    • Nose
      Faint notes of wood glue, varnish and vanilla essence, with a touch of wood shavings and cornflakes too. Finally a hint of banana, but it also has a floral side. Soft and gentle.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly oily (bonus points), although the oak (wood shavings and varnish) is a bit more present here. Was virgin oak used? Hints of butterscotch, apples and caramel, but also ginger and a pronounced amount of cloves, pepper and bitter oranges.
    • Finish
      Short and barely noticeable.

  3. Bam scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    Sweet and boring. The oak is barely noticeable.
    • Nose
      A light sweetness determines the first nose, sweetened cereals, vanilla, cinnamon, a lot of malt, brown sugar and honey. Then slightly florale with some bright fruits, yellow apples and pears, as well as apricots and pineapple.
    • Taste
      Easy onset, silky mouthfeel. Still a very light sweet, malt, vanilla, honey, popcorn. Remove pear, and some cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Very short, immediately after swallowing he is gone. Only a subtle alcoholic / peppery feeling remains.

    Pleasant suprise! Good mellow summer dram. Fruity and bit sweet. Some cereals in the mix. Don't know why, but works perfectly alongside some lager beer. Excellent bottle for summer picnics. Great value for the relatively modest price.

  7. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    It is well iodized, fresh, cereals are light, as airy. It's subtle. On the palate, vanilla, a finish that looks on herbs, an ounce of bitterness. I find this not bad at all.

  8. ARDBERG scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    I expected nothing and was positively surprised. Better than some much older scotch grains that I have tasted.
    The grain note is relative subdued by a pleasant sweetness. Good summer dram of which you'd need to take a good sip and chew well, other wise you might miss it.

  10. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    C: Likely a 3/4yo grain with a number of different cask types used. The result is a fairly plain yet well formed and faultless spirit with a desirable enough mouthfeel - one ideally more suited for cocktails than for sipping.
