The nose is first rather light, with cut grass hints, with some smoke notes on the background.
The body is light and oily and reveals some malt in the palate, with dry fruit and spice hints.
The impression in the mouth is confirmed by a lingering finish.
Personal Comment
Hints of cut grass remind a Lowland whisky. This impression of cut grass is confirmed in the palate, and is rather fresh and very pleasant. Besides the cut grass, some hints of spice and menthol are present as well. A lingering and pleasant finish, and the whole makes a bottle I really recommend.

The second tasting confirmed the first one. A great freshness and a rather complex whisky.
84/100
Again, the nose misleaded me, as I was quite sure this was a Lowlands whisky, sith its fresh cut grass and pear smells. The mouth is somewhere between pear and coffee.... Nice fruity hints, with touches of chocalate and some bitterness. Some discrete spices as well.
The finish is pleasantly lingering and rather warm, and the pleasure of the mouth is nicely prolonged for a while.
84/100
The nose is clearly marked by the freshness of cut grass mixed with smoothness of pleasantly perfumed flowers. Hints of hay and Marshmallow as well and last but not least, a very nice complexity.
In the palate, quite a fruity taste (ripe pear) and some very discrete touches of walnut. Sweetness is clearly dominating, and the nice complexity promised by the nose has disappeared.
The finish is smooth also and relatively long, but never spectacular.

Personal Comment
The first nose seems to be marked by wax and then by cough pills smells, fresh paint. Quite an amazing and complex nose.
In the palate, the same trends seem to persist. But wax and paint become praline and chocolate. The complexity of the nose has disappeared. This whisky is more amazing than pleasant. The relatively low alcohol percentage does not hinder. No watery impession like often with 40% diluted bottlings.
Finish is long and chocolate notes persist .

Personal Comment
Color: Light gold
Nice fruity nose, light hints of soap, boiled sweets. The nose is not vey complex and freshly fruity. After a few minutes, floral notes appear.
On the palate nothing spectacular. The freshness of the nose disappeared and alcohol is poorly integrated. Notes of milk chocolate apparently took the place of the fruit.
The finish is long, extending the mouth and again nothing in common with the nose.

Personal Comment
Appearance: Very pale with a slightly greenish tone and a soft sparkle. Nose: Freshly aromatic. A very fine iron tone. Paraffin-like. With water it becomes nutty. Reminds me of an old wooded house with old wooden furniture. Wet tarmac, sour fruits and aerosol spray.
Flavour: Quite dense and mouth filling but fine and pleasant at the same time. English bitter lingers in the finnish. Well balanced but weak. Development: After an hour it has still got a feeling of rain on hot tarmac. Not as complex, feels even weaker than before. A paper dry mouth feel has set in.
Comments: A refreshing dram with a clean feel.

Comment by Johannes_Sauer
Colour: Medium golden, polished brass.
Nose: A real strange nose. Strange but not really beautiful or impressive. Let’s try to get it in words: Wet leather, sour milk, apple vinegar, a kind of sour fruitiness, not very appealing. Also a honeylike sweetness, perhaps comparable to the Standard Jura, but without its roundness and malty notes. Still dominating the wet clothes, a moist table rag lying too long in a classroom.
Taste: Again wet clothes lying too long in a washing machine (I cannot put it in better words), or wet newspaper, together with that honeyish but musty sweetness. Sourmash, yeasty wheat beer, also notes of rye whiskey and cereal coffee. A certain similarity to Jura is clearly to state, but alas, to me this seems like a cask Jura would have sorted out...
Finish: Short and watery.
Conc.: Maybe this is just a bad bottle, I will ask in the forum if someone heard of this rather obscure distillery and their whisky. Date: 30. June 2009 Price in Germany: ca 30 Euro

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.
