Aroma: fruity, fresh. Simple and clear - ripe pears, some hay and butter. Vanilla. Hints of honey and soap.
Palate: sweet with notes of vanilla, pepper and fruit - apple peel, grapefruits, fresh grass. Nothing special, just very drinkable. Finish: short with bitter fruity notes with pepper.
Comment: good balance, young, simple malt. Not interesting at all. Suitable for drinking, not enjoying. Very very light, for peaty whisky haters.


The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
