    Same quality as most of the 70$ and higher "lawyer" malts *ehm*. Rock solid bottling imho.

    Have tried this malt H2H against 7-9 others at a similar price range, some even considerably more expensive. It outshined most of them to say the least, possibly all of them.
    • Nose
      Slow, understated, easy at 46%. First a whiff of light smoke. Heavy/dark blossoms - some very specific floral notes. Orange marmalade and tangerines.
    • Taste
      Dried fruit, sultanas, creamy lemon cake. But quickly becomes dominated by moss after rain and pu-erh tea.
    • Finish
      Medium, nutty, kindling a few spruce splinters.

    A very good whisky with a great nose, but personally i think it`s a tad to oaky/bitter.
    • Nose
      Opens up as very fruity, i get pear, bananas and ripe yellow apples, wee wee wee hi nt of peat(most likely the oak), sweetness and alcohol, and it feels thick and rich on the nose. Some oak way in the back.
    • Taste
      Sweet vanilla, caramel and cream, then bitter orange peel and dry oak, apples, and now the oak start to really turn up.
    • Finish
      Bitter caramel and oranges, sweetness and peppery oak.

      I found it to be more fruity with water, but also got more pepper and orange peel in the finish.
