    46.6% is The Lakes signature strength.
    C: This works just fine. Tasty, accessible/rounded blended malt.

  2. mariods scored this whisky 80 points Newbie

    A nicely presented bottle with a backstory, but the contents are less interesting. Has some depth, but is not complex. Overall not a bad drink.
    • Nose
      81 81
      A mix between citric and sweet fruit, with a slight hint of smoke in the end
    • Taste
      81 81
      A continuation of the nose but with smoke now more apparent. A touch of vanilla emerges, slightly herbal as well.
    • Finish
      78 78
      The finish is rather short and dry. Traces of smoke, but most sweetness now gone.

    A nicely presented bottle - the whisky inside is easy to drink. Not particularly complex, but decent nonetheless.

  4. thijs100 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Decent enough, and the abv at least gives it some body.
    • Nose
      Plenty of malted barley notes, as well as a good amount of smoke. Young (metallic) and quite intense. There's some pineapple sweetness and pear skin in the background, as well as a hint of freshly spliced oak, cloves and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Extremely malty, with some sweet smoke, vanilla and unpleasant plastic-y notes. A tad sour, although I find it hard to place. Some mild spices as well, and slightly drying too.
    • Finish
      On the shorter side, especially considering the peat-y aspect of this whisky.
