The colour is pale gold with greenish glints. The nose evokes the cereal with some herbal hints and is rather simple.
The palate confirms the nose with a poor body and a short finish slightly fruity..

Personal Comment
A pleasant smell dominated by the malt, with may be some hints of banana announces a good Speyside whisky. The taste does not deny the first impression. A very nice whisky however without depth. A too short finish does not make it possible to continue to benefit from the pleasure a long time after drinking. This malt is above the average, but not really essential.

The conclusions of the second tasting are very close to those of the first one, however the rating is lower this time. The characteristic complexity of malts from that area is not present in this slightly peppered malt.

The nose detects some hints of malt, with a touch of spices and fresh grass. In the palate, the malt dominates and the taste is relatively simple, without complexity. The finish is rather spicy (pepper) and shows a lack at nuances too.

This whisky is rather simple at the first nosing, marked by the cereals and some spicy hints on the background. After a while, the smell palette seems to increase and spices become dominant, and later some citrus hints appear. Then the nose seems to return to its original simplicity.... In the palate, the taste is both bitter and woody, followed by some slightly acid and peppery hints. The mouth, quite pleasant without being really great is less interesting than the nose was. The finish is rather long, and the memory of a spiced malt seems to dominate. The finish is more impressing than the mouth was.

Quite a nice whisky from Speyside. Without great surprises, but without any lack. A rather long finish let benefit for a while of the pleasure after the whisky has left the palate. Light hints of smoke mixed with a slightly honeyish sweetness make this bottle rather pleasant.
If we consider the price of this bottle, it is a very good price-quality ratio. For the blended whisky lovers, lets remind this malt is the base of the famous J&B.

A second tasting after a few weeks obliged me to revise slightly my opinion about this malt. The smell really reminded me an Edradour, with this touch of special and pleasant stuff. Malt? dried fruits? The finish stays long and pleasant...
84/100
The nose is characterized by the malt and some slightly acid touches, recalling bakers yeast on a fruity background. In the palate, the taste is rather pleasant, but without complexity, and malt is the main flavour, even if some remote smoke touches are present as well. A finish of average length.

Color: Gold
The nose is relatively linear marked above all by the smell of yeast that I generally not particularly appreciate. There is fortunately more in the nose. Well balanced and not aggressive. Too bad, this persistence of yeast ...
The mouth is not very spectacular. Nice no more. Relatively linear, marked especially by malty smoothness, but not exuberantly fruity or anything else. But it's still a nice easy to drink whisky.
Final rather unexpected ... notes of Oxo cubes style ... then a slow evolution towards peppery and spicy memories. It is also extremely long and very pleasant. I know few whiskys that are a little disappointing at the nose and mouth and prove to have a fabulous finish. This is an example.

Colour: Dark Mahogany
The nose is marked by the sherry sweetness. Fruity notes make their way behind the mocha flavors that are often present in old sherry. Relatively complex, and without any aggression, the nose is very engaging.
The mouth is also very marked by sherry. Slightly back from the nose though. It loses in complexity. Notes of sherry, traces of chocolate and hints of mocha. A light fruity acidity is refreshing the palate at first, but all are standardized in a few moments. This whisky would have cheerfully endured few degrees higher, which would have prevented the slightly watery, indicating a lack of structure, turn out to be. Aside from the fact that the nose had prepared for us for something better, this whisky is really good.
The finish is long and warm, always marked by the same flavors of sherry.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
