The colour is gold. The nose is characterised by sherry, nut and peat hints.
The taste of nuts is rather dry, and some toffee hints make it sweeter.
This whisky is well balanced, and the very pleasant finish is slightly perfumed.

Personal Comment

Another very honest whisky from the Speyside area. It's very reasonable price makes it a malt with an excellent quality-price ratio. It is not really exceptional, but it still is a very good malt
.70/100
It's a pity that this good whisky is not better known. Balance is its greatest characteristic, pleasant from the very first nosing. The light peat and sherry hints add some colours to a well balanced taste. A very nice finish. I really recommend this bottle.
79/100
A refined nose, a taste of average complexity, whit some influences of peat and malt make this bottle a good average whisky. Nothing to be ashamed of, but nothing really exceptional neither, except the price which prompts me to confirm the recommendation in the previous tasting notes.
74/100
The nose is quite pleasant with its hints of slightly peaty malt and some discrete sherry touches. In the palate, a pleasant smooth impression with some bitterness, close to wallnut or hazelnut taste. Quite an interesting finish, rather long and nicely perfumed.

Colour: Straw
Strong hints of yeast at first nosing. That really does not announce lots of fun. But let's leave him some little time to open ... Still this yeast, which makes me think of this product to kill ants we used in my distant youth ... Difficult to find something else behind this odor. Hopefully mouth is better omen ...
The first impression in the mouth is much better than that foreshadowed by the nose. Without making a very pleasant mouth either. Hints of coffee and mocha, relatively linear. No major defects but little pleasure ...
The finish is relatively short and the coffee tastes continue to demonstrate their presence.

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.
