    Another whiskey from Seven Seals, this time Port Wood finish and peated. Here, too, there is no information on age and actual maturation. Color or filtering is also not specified. So it should again be whiskey from the Great Northern Distillery, which is fast-forward-finished in the mysterious Seven Seals process. After all, the smoke could give it the complexity that pure Sherry Wood or Port Wood lacked.
    • Nose
      There is smoke, but it's very subdued and low, it's more of a wood smoke that's distinctly different from Islay or maritime smoky notes. This is a smoky note that whiskey drinkers who are not used to smoking might also like. Overall, like the other two Seven Seals whiskeys, the aromas are very light and reserved, no age and no complexity or depth can be felt. The same applies here: Young whiskey that can hide its youth well and invites you to drink it.
    • Taste
      You don't have to waste a lot of words. No off notes, no noticeable youth but also no age, no maturity - drinkable whiskey with some smoke that remains quite generic and arbitrary. Vanilla and smoke are the most prominent of the aromas, with fruit remaining in the background. But they are all quite arbitrary aromas with little character of their own.
    • Finish
      The finish is a bit longer due to the smoke. But it's not exciting or stimulating.

      Sure, the whiskey's ok. But nothing more. This is standard supermarket style, but not €60+ whiskey. And that's why this whiskey is annoying. Smokey and young? Many distilleries from Torabhaig to Staoisha (Bunnahabhain) can do that. But mostly with their own character.
