Whisky Reviews for Croftengea 2011 SMWS 122.26

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Fun peated non-Islay malt well done and indeed something different from Loch Lomond. Good quality.

  2. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: A remarkable concoction of peated jelly babies, medical tinctures, silage, burnt kelp, sandalwood, fishing nets, wet beach pebbles, charred wood, chalk and lively minerality. Wonderfully funky! Develops further notes of dried twigs, farmyard, marzipan and crystalised fruits. Water unearths pineapple jelly, ointment, wood smoked porridge oats, burnt toast, peppermint sweeties, toffee apples and then notes of spring greens fried in butter and BBQ char. The mouth is slathered in greasy peats, TCP, tar resin, gentian eau de vie and peat oils. The mineral aspect remains gravely while water adds leather rags, boiler smoke, paraffin wax, toasted fennel seed and Selkirk bannock. A uniquely characterful dram!
