  1. coldsun scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Flavor is a little bit sharp with notes of malt, alcohol and little fruits. After some time becomes sweet with flowers. Taste has notes of malt, nuts and spices (hot pepper) but becomes weak after some time. Finish is tart, very warming but short.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    The nose is pretty rich and versatile, the taste isn't. Sweet, smooth, pale. Not exactly what I expected from 'fire'. Okay, but by far not remarkable.

      Fruity and spicy. Some hint of red fruits,berries, some pepper, and some vegetal notes as well, plants.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Smooth, only a little tingling mouthfeel. Some sweetness now, honey, malty. Not exactly what I expected with 'fire' though... A bit pale.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Still pretty smooth, just a little bit of pepper. Sweetness, honey, not too long.

      salty edge, bit young / spirity, biscuits
    • Finish
      74 74
      nothing bad here, but a bit boring since it delivers nothing exciting.

    according to the bottle:

    Nose –Creamy butterscotch with citrus and winter spices.
    Taste –Sweet apple pie with a light dusting of cinnamon.
    Finish –Slightly dry with a delicate spicy finish.

  7. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Tight start that needs some water resulting in evident influence of the charred cask, sweetness and a welcome fruitiness.

  8. Falnor scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    This series is very well done in the eyes of marketing, sadly the taste doesn quite deliver. Nothing wrong about this one, but also nothing special.
    • Nose
      Cotton candy, vanilla and a slight bitterness to start with. Also green bananas. Perhaps this dram needs some more time.
    • Taste
      Very malty but also middle of the road. Vanilla, honey a bit of pepper from the alcohol could discribe a lot of whisky.
      Gets more towards candy and caramalised apples. 
    • Finish
      Sweet and malty core remaiins the same.
