2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.12 points

  1. Segens scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Ok dram but nothing else. The nose & mouth are nice but the finish kills the dram a bit. Worth a try but that's also it.
    • Nose
      malty, citrus, honey, apple/pear

      Very balanced which is surprising. Obviously no blast but not too bad.
    • Taste
      Take a bigger sip because otherwise you miss the taste which in a smaller sip is not carried. Apple/pear combo with decent honey, pepper and the alcohol is well implemented. 
    • Finish
      medium long but the youth and oaky bitterness dominate unfortunately

  2. rottendon scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A really positive surprise, much more adult than expected, no Obstler, no tin, that's nice, tasty whisky, which the Swedes have conjured up there. All attention!
    • Nose
      Not so bad on the nose, not the expected Obstler, lots of malt and cereal with some apple and phenolic smoke. Citrus flavors develop. Too long you should not let it go, then it drifts a bit strong towards disinfectant. Heat brings him back.
    • Taste
      The alcohol is soft and seems to be well integrated, a lot of sweet cocoa with milk, creamy, some pepper and back herbs, some acid on the palate raises.
    • Finish
      The finish is not overly long, more a fading of the cocoa and acid, leaves some ashes in the mouth.
