  1. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    For a blended whisky, it wasn't too bad. The mouthfeel was watery and the nose and palate aren't easy to parse due to the low ABV, but it's still a decent dram. I'm glad Graham Coull decided to go for a bit of peat in this one, as it adds a little something unique. Not great, but not bad either.
    • Nose
      Light iodine peat and red-fruit taffy, toasted oak and black pepper powder, caramelized fruits (pears and nectarines), coriander, vanilla pod and caramelized ginger root, orange blossom water and alcohol vapor.
    • Taste
      Light iodine peat and faint malt, fruit and oak, brown sugar, and faint sweet-turning-bitter baking spices (nutmeg, coriander, and ginger).
    • Finish
      Barrel char and bitter chocolate covered espresso beans, cinnamon, licorice pastels, and oak tannins with a faint note of smoked malt.
