Eclectic Scotchist Note

Eclectic Scotchist gave this whisky 76 points

For me a decent example of a 'classic' Lowland whisky. Grassy and flowery notes, sweet and pleasant with notes of vanilla also - and with a little bit of smoke to mention some traits of this whisky. Light-bodied. Short finish which is not too exciting, but still quite enjoyable. A decent buy all in all in my book.

Koning Tasting note

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Pretty light, but interesting enough.Both fresh (grass, lemon) and sweet (flowers, caramel) elements. Also a little bit of smokiness on the background.

Taste

Initially young and sour/fresh (alcohol, green apples, lemon), later developing into flowery notes and creamy caramel.

Finish

Both bitter, sweet, and sour. Green garden herbs. Fades out rather quick and leaves a dry mouth.

Comments

A broad palate which doesn't always work out well.
