  1. wirth.daniel scored this whisky 75 points Newbie

    Suprisingly good for a first release, though they spiced it up a bit with the Virgin Oak finish...
    Nose with vanilla, green apple and some sweetness, honey like
    Palate features oak, some barley and malt, less fruity. alcoholic nature
    Finish is quite long and dry. No metallic taste as is some other younger ones

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Very fresh whisky! Light, grassy and floral, light fruits, some vanilla. In the taste also some caramel.
    It doesn't have a quite long finish, but for such a young whisky it's surprisingly good and mature already.
    Certainly interesting, and nice having tasted this one.

  4. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    a solid malt with potential
    He did not blow me away but that can become something with the distillery
    • Nose
      Malt, sweetness, banana, light oak, fresh / green, sweet pastries, vanilla comes and gets stronger, caramel easily comes
      later red berry, some cherry and biscuit waffles
      the alcohol is pricking and could be better integrated
    • Taste
      full and strong on the palate
      spicy, bitter, light oak, tart, dark, dark red fruit (towards forest fruit), minimal smoke
    • Finish
      medium to long
      Oak and bitter will come more, easily vanilla and caramel

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    young, but with potential, the fresh oak bothers more than it brings.
    • Nose
      Sweetish, fruity, slightly youthful, vanilla, noticeable citrus notes, some sawdust of the new oak.
    • Taste
      Mouth: slightly alcoholic, but very grassy and beautiful fruit notes.
    • Finish
      herbaceous, cactus, grassy, the fresh oak brings more sawdust than spices.

  6. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Decent level entry malt. At a maximum this is 4 years old and for that, it’s rather interesting already!
    • Nose
      Solventy notes at first, then quickly dissipating into custardy apples and ripe pears. A faint banana is indicating youth. There is also a mix of saw dust, honey, and white grapes.
    • Taste
      Pretty straight forward. Vanilla cream with caramel syrup, a rather active concoction of oak, mild banana bread, and Riesling. It’s drying a bit, and the alcohol is carrying the flavor nicely into the finish.
    • Finish
      Medium. Sweet and creamy, with grape juice and steamed oranges.
