  3. Andreas W. scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A drinkable whisky at a still acceptable price. Not more but also not less. But I expect a little more from an 18. It's not intense enough for me. Probably 46% or 48% would do him very good.

      Vanilla, caramel, light fruitiness and a little spice
    • Taste
      81 81
      Not very complex and somehow not really intense. The fruitiness goes down a bit. A bit watery in the glass, I miss a certain oiliness.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Short to medium finish ...
