  1. zombsta scored this whisky 88 points Member Junior

    Bear in mind this review is done on a bottle with a disintegrated cork, and despite my best effort to seal it with Scotch tape, air seepage may have reduce its flavour profile. Overall pleasant easy to drink. Neither complicated or complex. Considering what you gain and lose, better without water.

      Neat: Gentle peat, grassy, eucalyptus, red apple skin, bandage

      Water: Gentle peat, rounder, sweeter, hint of salt
    • Taste

      Neat: Red apples

      Water: Lost most of the apples, gained hint of citrus.

      Neat: Developed into a gentle warm before disappearing.

      Water: That warmth disappeared. A little sugar cane juice green-ness and even shorter finish.

  3. Beethoven scored this whisky 96 points Newbie

    It is perfect in the intense peaty, sweet in the right measure, medicinal and balanced saline. It's a whisky masterclass.
