  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Decent, good even, but not great. Quite a bit of wood influence, dominating the spirit just a tad too much.
    • Nose
      Sweet and spicy with a relatively subtle peat influence. Orange liqueur, creamy vanilla, touches of cinnamon as well as pickled ginger (giving it a slight soapiness). Whiff of red apple peel too.
    • Taste
      Quite an intense arrival, with plenty of spiciness, but mainly pepper and fresh ginger root. Hints of earthy peat, burnt oak and charcoal. Water brings out hints of sawdust.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices. Cinnamon. Crack peppercorns.
