  1. DistiLesha scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    The profile is like a steep hill. Went from a promising aroma to a disappointing aftertaste. :(

    22 21 19 18
    • Nose
      Lots of malt and fresh garden fruit, tannins, cinnamon, vanilla.
      Alcohol is in place, but it does not interfere with work! :)
    • Taste
      Alcoholic bitterness, a handful of fresh chopped pears and apples, oak tannins, burning spices, citric acid, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger.
      There is a slight hint of maturity - minerality, an old bottle and a little bit of tropical fruit.
    • Finish
      Very alcoholic and bitter, with an unpleasant ending and already interferes with work! :(

  5. DannyHill scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Fruity nose, orchard fruit, quite nice. Palate has more orchard fruit, rather light on the palate. Ok to try.

    Off-notes of rubber and plastic destroy any possible pleasant aroma, if ever present in this whisky.

  8. Brunobaer1887 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It's light, tasty, nutty and dangerously tasty. We had it as an aperitif, which was excellent

    The price-performance ratio is great!

  9. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    On the nose, discreetly at first, pear and leather. It's calm here. The fruits are revealed slowly. On the palate, a nice impression of fruit syrup, but no wood. Everything is very round. Few spices. The finish is short and sweet. All that is there is good but it lacks many things! Enthusiasm 2/5
