  1. Implar scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Beautiful balance between spirit and cask.
    • Nose
      A very sweet smoke, red apples, plums, mint, pine, a hint of those Laphroaigy medicinal note. Some earthiness to, a very pleasant nose!
    • Taste
      Immediate arrival, the smoke comes through much clearer here. Some peppers. Citrus and a hint of sweeter fruit, some banana perhaps?
    • Finish
      The smoke continues, some earth notes, cardamom. Pleasantly long

  2. mariods scored this whisky 88 points Newbie

    A fantastic drink for this kind of money.
    • Nose
      The nose is a kick of sweet smoke and mild spices, rounded off with some pear.
    • Taste
      In the mouth pretty surprising, unexpectedly dominated by ripe black berries and a sudden, short burst of citrus fruits, but not too sour or agressive. Nicely rounded off with the same kind of smoke found in the nose. Some spice indeed present, but much further in the background. Overall pretty sweet.
    • Finish
      In the finish the taste of the black fruit lingers for an impressively long time, the smoke nicely transcends into more toasted notes. Very pleasant pair of tastes.
