  1. ricallende scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Nose: Sweet tangerines and zesty drops of lemon. Very light and fresh. Gentle smoke is present, so gentle it’s very hard to detect. Water and time in the glass bring out nice floral notes.
    • Taste
      Interesting mix of oranges and ginger – bit spicy. Crispy and nutty malt with perfectly smooth vanilla. Drops of water make the taste bitter. And add nutmeg notes.
    • Finish
      Bitter fruity citrus notes. Like slightly old and dried oranges with acid feel. Strong notes of raisins rise from the aftertaste. Even though the powerful raisin notes arrive very late, I still would have expected a better finish. Nicely long but bit dull.

  4. HunterRomario scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Such a relaxed, not very demanding whisky, but stylish enough to sit for me, ideal for moments of well-being when you need to turn off and do nothing to solve.
    • Nose
      The aroma is very malt, with some honey and polish, all of which adds grassy to floral aroma. (82 b)
    • Taste
      On top of the tongue, malt, sweetish, with tones of vanilla and honey, wood is added, again the flowers and grass. Dozvuk is rather dry, woody, slightly bitter in the end, but cool. The strength of the alcohol is a little varnish, stupid. (84 b)

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Entry level, yes. But a classic with an unbeatable price / quality ratio. Never disappoint, to have in his bar.
    • Nose
      Honey sweetness mixed with maritime iodine. A sweet / salty very addictive and very pleasant.
    • Taste
      Sea peat coated with honey. A little smoke licks the palate. A back and forth between sweetness and iodine, delicious.
    • Finish
      Moderately long. Peppery notes, the sea air that persists in waves. These sea waves crash on the palace.

    • Nose
      Fatty aromas of wax, sweet grass, roots, earthy aromas and subtle hints of pepper followed by a gentle smokiness
    • Taste
      A creamy, fruity flavor of malt, peat, grapes and seaweed
    • Finish
      Round and smoky aftertaste that quickly drier

  9. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Fruity nose, with gentle smoke in the background. Initially a bit harsh and bitter on the palate, but this was tamed with a fair few drops of water, revealing a much more pleasant taste and long finish. Nicely balanced (when water was added) revealing smooth, fruity characteristics alongside some coastal ruggedness.

  10. Ikkakumon scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Excellent malt with an unbeatable price / quality ratio.
    • Nose
      Fragrant and relatively floral. Tingling with a touch of smoke.
    • Taste
      First sweet with molasses and orange, then the flavors explode and the whisky becomes drier, with lots of spices, mustard, a little smoke and a woody influence.
    • Finish
      Very long, dry and saline, with a balanced bitterness remaining on the tongue.
