  1. Official tasting note

    This powerhouse of a dram opens with lemons charring on the BBQ. Beyond there is smoked and peppered mackerel and hot smoked salmon. Enough to induce hunger! There’s also a cognitively jarring briny and ozone-rich quality about it. A whole shellfish platter has been placed before you. Notes of chopped dill, polished metal and some exotic fruits hiding underneath.

    Water reveals camphor and burlap with notes of chalk and smoked whelks. The palate unfolds with a mighty, crashing wave of peat on a shore of sandalwood, wet rocks, mineral-encrusted creel nets and then hay, smoked earth and silage. With water the farmy aspects are heightened with notes of dried herbs and some smoked butter. Stonking stuff!

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very dense, bright whisky, velvet, the palette of derivatives is rather meager and not rich in shades, but it doesn’t matter, it attracts you with its energy, beating of life, expressiveness.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, bright and juicy peat notes accompanied by prickly ash-mineral shades, very dense, oily tones, smoked meats.
    • Taste
      Powerful, saturated, oak, lemon peel, peat, pepper wave, ash and mineral notes, mineral water with orange juice, sweet creamy tones, Montpensier lollipops, charred branches, smoked meat.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, wood-peat, candied lemon, some tropical fruits, nuts, cocoa.
