  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A good lowlander. Pretty introduction malt to lowland whisky. No flaws, no depth, no highs.
    Pretty good sipping whisky of daily dram.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Mildly sweet, barley, little delicate underlying notes of flower, freshly cutted grass and a touch of marmelate.

      A classic lowland nose, delicate and not easy to understand. Yet, there could be more depth in here
    • Taste
      82 82
      Bitter-sweet arrival. A little thin. Quite some cereal and barley notes. There is also a vanilla and cream note in here which indicates the bourbon casks. Not much going around though.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium length. Quite clear bourbon barrel influences, so the typical vanilla, toffee, fudge notes. And a little bit of tannines.

  5. schengel10 scored this whisky 68 points Connoisseur

    An inconspicuous, restrained malt - in terms of intensity, it is reminiscent of a blend!
    • Nose
      subtle nose: light, flowery, malty, slightly citrus fruit (pears, quinces);
    • Taste
      soft, malty, fruity (sweet pear, lime), delicate spice (oak), pleasant but unspectacular;
    • Finish
      soft, medium length finish; short sweetish finish;

  7. spigray scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    mine has another laser code but I guess the differences cannot be that big
    • Nose
      82 82
      bready and yeasty, youngish, not like 12 years, somehow between sour apples and pears, apple juice, rather light
    • Taste
      84 84
      very pleasant on the palate, light, juicy, apples again, hints of light honey, malty, medium sweet. nice round body.
    • Finish
      80 80
      a little short, baked apples, bread dough

  9. karloff scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    This is a tiny sample from the distillery. Quite malty, oily and grassy. Very distinctive I would think if i was ever to try it again even many years down the road.
