  1. craide scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    Easy tasty malt nobody overwhelmed. The 50% transport the flavors very well. Light alk. Sharpness that can be suppressed by some water.
    At the PLV it's a good snack.

      Sweet, citrus fresh, white wine, slightly oily, light alcoholic sharpness, some water makes it easier to drink here, but unfortunately does not hold what the nose promises.

  9. J.K.Ch did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet sour smell full of fruit. There are traces of vanilla and cream.
    • Taste
      The taste is whisky first and foremost sharp. Otherwise, the taste is quite balanced and pleasant. Fruit, white wine and nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Dozvuk is the weakest link. It burns and disappears quickly, leaving a feeling of drier white wine, which has been enhanced by high-quality alcohol.
