    Very sweet, very smoky and a lot of steam. Great Islay Malt.
    • Nose
      Lots of smoke that is somewhere between the smokehouse and the campfire. In addition, forest honey, citrus fruits and hay. Salty maritime notes and a little coriander. With a little water it is significantly fresher and fruity with green apple. The nose really looks good.
    • Taste
      Fresh and fruity with sweet malt and honey. Incredibly sweet with smoked ham and ash.
    • Finish
      Sweet and spicy, again honey and citrus fruits.

    Fairly decent NAS whisky to end a tasting session on a cool night. Not too complex but nice to have tried it.

    Pretty good. Not so smoky, very round. Taste is awesome, but expected more from nose and finish. Definitely must to try, especially if price is good

  8. detachedblue scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The palate is strong and powerful, great and simple dram.
    • Nose
      Despite young, a lot of wood influence, feels matured, smoky but not very peaty, dry and musty
    • Taste
      Sweet and burning, oak, paint, very sour and juicy, powerful mouthfeel, orange, floral, banana, pear drop, bitter herbs
    • Finish
      Short-medium, peated barley crusts, barley sugar
