  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Notes by producer:

    The peaty beast returns, bringing its classic cereal notes, and some juicy fruit for good measure.

    Cask details:
    Distillate from 2011 aged in a single bourbon barrel.

    Tasting Notes; 

    Nose
    Multi-layered and fascinating, the nose offers lots of malty cereal, wet straw and peaty smoke alongside juicy fruit-salad notes of grapes and oranges.

    Palate
    More fruit at first mingles with nuts, toffee, and cereal before an explosion of smoke takes over, slowly dissipating and leading to baked apple pastries.

    Finish
    Baked apples and wisps of smoke from a wood-burning stove.

  2. gerrit de guru scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Crisp, fresh and fruity.
    Not really complex, a fraction too simple maybe.
