  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    A truckload of vanilla, syrupy sweet, tinned peach and apples. Not my favourite style.

    • Taste

      In terms of taste less fresh than the smell. Sherry, vanilla, dates (?), A tad dry mouthfeel. Overall tasty starter drink or as a starter to start the evening.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long, especially a lot of sweet and a bit spicy in the finish.

  4. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Caramel, apples, lemon zest, spices, oak, cake, toffee notes on nose. 

    Dried fruits, spices, dryness, apples, oak, honey, caramel and cocoa notes on palate.

    Spices, dryness, sweet fruits, vanilla, lemon zest and oak notes on middle finish.

    It’s a good smooth whisky. 

  5. McKen scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    A very balanced whisky due to a perfect balance in casks.
    • Nose
      Apple and lemon zest, general fruitiness. A butterscotch and toffee apple sweetness. After a while bit more woody. Some tropical elements as well, like coconut and vanilla.
    • Taste
      A very soft and corny palate. Malted milk and dulce de leche, also salted caramel. Again woody but with hints of cinnamon.
    • Finish
      A very fruity finish, hints of blood oranges. Te cinnamon note of woodiness returns. An ever so slightly dark chocolate bitterness.

  10. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur


    N: Honeyed, floury malt, raisins, creamy caramel, a fresh fustiness [if thats possible?], a little slice of new plimsole rubber, figs,…  Easy and pleasant with clear signs of more growing potential.
    T: More of the same. Cuts in nicely with decent weight, some body and shape.
    F: Short with milky/chalky, vanilled, malty-chocolate-y sweet remnants.
    C: Pleasing balance between maturity and youth. As i commented last year, [still] a very decent entry-level core release.Scores C+
