  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Not bad, young, but different from the usual young Speysider. Nevertheless, too light, and one or the other funny flavor is there.
    • Nose
      Young, fruity, pearly, vanilla, sweet, but also a spicy note, subtly scorched, slightly burnt-on plastic, probably from the peat. Not bad.
    • Taste
      Slightly watery and discreet at the beginning, slightly alcoholic. Only little fruit and sweetness, rather tart and spicy aromas
    • Finish
      Light peat, ashen, burned plastic. Then some fruit, light sweet notes and a vinous aftertaste. Very short and watery.

  2. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Begins grassy and pithy. In the background spicy oak, caramel and some citrus zests. Over time, more and more custard and the smoky note of the banished crust a Creme Brulee.
    • Taste
      At first pithy and grassy framed by spicy oak. Now followed by burnt sugar, citrus zests and cold custard.
    • Finish
      Full, long and grassy. Late oak note.

    If this is a distillery bottling then I would stick to the IB's. It's not totally crap, just very boring. This was a sample courtesy of my Polish neighbour.
    • Nose
      84 84
      A soft fruity nose, Victoria plum, peach, red apple and green melon. There is also some sort of candy note like marshmallow. I am finding it quite pleasant, a nice sniffer. It says on the bottle, just enough peat to start a fire, I couldn't find a trace.
    • Taste
      65 65
      The soft fruity notes continue with the taste and I'm afraid that's about it. You are waiting for something else to arrive and it never does, it just bypasses straight to the finish.
    • Finish
      60 60
      The finish isn't much to right home about either, short and sweet.

  7. ctu scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Easy to drink malt, one dimensional and strange because the lot of menthol.
    • Nose
      78 78
      Spicy oak, waxy apple and pear, mojito and earth. Over time there is a touch of peat.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Big dose of menthol. Fruits and spicy oak.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Short, fresh and spicy.

  8. Arquebus scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    light, spirity, after shavey - in a goood way!
    40% - no craft presentation. However, quite distinctive - nose: eau de cologne mint, then apples and pears, some deeper notes - wood / earth - very quaffable....
