  1. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Not too grotesque, smoky and complex Ballechin, but it's easy to drink an affordable price.

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A worthy, multifaceted and refined aroma, a light and harmonious finish, and between them, alas, a rather noticeable gap in taste, which significantly reduces the overall impression. Playing with water did not give any result - the taste improved slightly, but the aroma clearly degraded.
    • Nose
      Open, damp, we are greeted by notes of leather goods, suede, new shoes framed by sharp ash-mineral shades, light smoky-peat motifs, dried fruits, old wood, furniture varnish, tobacco leaf, cigar box, pu-erh, coffee, dark chocolate , fondant, Cancer necks, furniture polish.
    • Taste
      Soft, slightly watery, rather youthful and rustic compared to what the fragrance promised, oak, light smoky peat shades, coffee, tobacco, furniture lacquer, quite diverse and seems to continue to develop the theme of the fragrance, but everything is somehow rougher and more primitive, plus parasitic dusty cardboard motifs appear.
    • Finish
      Light, refreshing, creamy shades, oak, tobacco, leather goods, light smoky peat and ash tones, dried fruits, coffee, old furniture, polish.

  4. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    no painting for me; I found it difficult
    where are the 10y
    the nose is still OK, but this mixture of peppers, chilli, oil and cheese is quite an experience; I don't have to go back again
    The palate and finish are weird
    • Nose
      Paprika, chilli chipps !!, a little oil becomes more, spicy, a little smoke, a little oak, wholemeal pastries, leather comes, raisins come later

      with water: less smoke, more oily, very spicy, earthy becomes more, cheesy and slightly salty
    • Taste
      full and vigorous
      slightly raisin, slightly oak, spicy, you can feel the alcohol, smoke, chill or pepper, oil / workshop, earthy and nutty

      with water: softer, even spicier, tart, chilli / paprika, strawberry, minimally grassy notes
    • Finish
      medium to long
      spicy, some smoke, light cherries

      with water: red, fruity, spicier

  5. Don Cassi scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The nose opens with smoked bacon, followed by berry fruit aromas. Everything is relatively diffuse and not very present. After adding water, a little vanilla is added and it becomes a little creamier but not really more intense.

    Already a bit fuller in the mouth, despite the young age, clear oak that continues into the finish. In addition, there is some ash and sweet and sour dried fruits. At the end there is unfortunately a slight metallic appearance. The alcohol is always well integrated and hardly disturbs.
    Length: 5/10

    Interesting bottling, but I guess that at the age of 2 or 3 it would have been more present and balanced in the barrel.

    Grade: 2+
