  1. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A still young Mòine - and yet so mature. Actually, I do not need to know how it might turn out to be more expensive in a few years' time. 11 years are enough here completely.
    • Nose

      He is initially reserved, opens only slowly. Then a gentle peat smoke peels out, underlaid with smoked orange peel, grapes, raisins and roasted almonds. Is becoming more defined and concrete, is building up very beautiful. Marzipan bread, vanilla, nutmeg, clove powder.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Creamy onset, for cask strength soft and velvety. Fruity and spicy at the same time, with grapes, blackcurrants, figs and raisins as well as nutmeg, pepper and licorice. Smoke resonates in the background but is not dominant. Although much easier to access on the tongue than in the nose, it is in no way boring.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium to long, only slightly dry. Delicious red fruits, spicy, licorice, smoky. Finally, a cafe au lait.

    The is quite edgy, accessible to water.

      Creamy smoke, spicy influence of the remanufactured red wine barrels, nutmeg, light sweetness, the smoke is slightly resinous, campfire, barbecue, the smoke is quite clear, dry red fruit, greasy, chocolate, quite spicy overall, smoky and creamy undertone , with water fresher and creamier, it comes through more fruit and also slightly sour red berries, better
    • Taste
      also very spicy, strong smoke, dry mouthfeel, scratch something, initially sweet, some cinnamon, warming, slightly vinous, dark red fruit notes, but the smoke and the spice take up most of the room, has something Christmas, with water in the Mouth more accessible, creamier, slightly caramel
    • Finish
      the smoke lingers for a long time, still enough seasoning, some pepper, the whole mouth is covered, with water also less smoke, more fruit, mulled wine
