  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Young and grain, it is a little dull initially, then cooler thereafter. Distant granny apple
    • Taste
      Rather pleasant, it hangs a little in the end. It is quite mat with a light fruitiness.
    • Finish
      Slightly fruity, but quite weak.

      Enthusiasm 2/5

      Whiskey n ° 2081

    Excellent value.
    Very honest presentation (unchill-filtered natural color).
    Composed of certainly very young whiskies, it does not lack charm and character, perfectly embodying the sought-after island style.
    Surprisingly I notice that at the level of the notes, it is quite divisive (from 89 to 77). Taste it and form your own opinion.

      Mainly: + light peat, salt, maritime
      But also: - pear, slightly acetic (young whiskies)
    • Taste

      Fresh, salty, cereals
      Not at all watery despite only 43.5%

      Relatively long, salty

  6. Islaysmoke scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Salty maritime with a sweet smoke. Vanilla and fresh citrus notes. Rumfinish is restrained. I was able to talk to Anthony McCallum at the Hanse Spirit 2019 and there I also tried the Mc of the Isles for the first time. Super yummy and very (dangerous) tasty.

  7. Volker Gude scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Nice light fruity (lemon) nose.
    Maritime in the mouth, slightly salty, tropical fruits.
    Maritime finish.
    Not bad, easy, for summer evenings :-)
