General description

This is just a very well made blended whisky. The nose (which is the best part of it) is very inviting and promises a whisky that has a very fine balance. Yes, it's aimed a a broad audience as a friendly and easy sipper, but you just can't argue with the quality. I like to compare this with JW black, not in terms of flavour, but in terms of it being a benchmark as a quality entry level scotch whisky.

Nose

82

Like stated, the nose is the best part of this whisky. A lovely combination of vanilla, honey, a hint of nuts, soft clove in the back and a faint touch of grass and red fruit with a gentle creaminess to round it all of.

Taste

77

A typical blend, with the grainy, creamy note starting things up, immediately followed by vanilla, honey and a subtle wood note. Less complex and less rich than the nose, but none the less: unpretentious and a fine balance

Finish

73

rather short, the taste just sort of fades out and then disappears allthogether, leaving with a slightly dry woodnote.

Aus einer leichten, frischen Nase entwickelt sich ein Vanilleton, der von Kräutern begleitet wird. Anklänge von Thymian und Rosmarin sind zu finden. Diese Aromen finden sich auch im Geschmack wieder. Überlagert wird das von einer leichten Holzbitterkeit. Diese hält sich auch im eher kurzen Abgang, wobei sie stärker von einer Vanille-Toffee-Note begleitet wird.
