  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    When WG starts releasing a single malt in GS, you have to go and see!
    nose:
    fine peat, a little dry, vanilla and a little cooked lemon, a little spices too
    a floral side in return
    mouth:
    the peat present, but not very strong, intense smoke is grafted on it, fruits on undifferentiated yellow fruits, simple, creamy, easy for an Islay rite or for a starter for a variation because it is nice , but monolithic, almost watery in the mouth in fact
    final:
    spicy, peppery, peaty again finally, velvety and vanilla, lemon with a little cream that hides the acidity!
    bitterness spoils the finale of this light dram.
    for the price, don't hide your face, you are dealing with a real Islay from elsewhere who wins the pawn with a lot of whiskys from elsewhere.

    Smoked malt. Sweet, malty, much smoked, lacking in firmness

    I haven't had many different whiskys yet but this was one of the better ones so far.

  8. vlad78 scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    The sour smoke of a room smoked in wet weather. The taste is sweet and sour. The aftertaste is short.

  9. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Entry level, very simple, faceless, smoky whisky. There are a lot of similar releases, only almost all of them without age. In my opinion, this sample lacks fortress, but overall it is quite tasty. They say about such people - “a strong middle peasant”.
    • Nose
      Dry, smoky, with echoes of iodine, tar and chernozem.
    • Taste
      Smoked meat, salt, iodine and a lot of pepper.
    • Finish
      Sufficiently long, bright, pepper, with a high content of phenols, shades of iodine and salt.

    Smoky, good taste for a nice price!
