  1. Moses scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    One of those whiskys that are planning an attack on the palate. Indian beer and Scottish peat meet each other in a positive way. And looking at the PLV, you can't go wrong here. He needs some water badly ... not much.
    • Nose
      A pleasant fruity balance beforehand and a complexity on the nose completely unexpected. He has a surprising maturity for his rather young age. Fine citrus notes with sweet caramel. Aha, ... delicious.
    • Taste
      Too much alcohol. Full attack. Lots of wood and only a few toffee aromas. Clearly better after the water. Strange nutty notes and then almost flowery dried peat smoke. A bit of light pepper and a hint of vanilla. Too much drying to the end.
    • Finish
      Long astringent finish with a peppery finish. Somewhat tropical fruits with a calming, long-lasting, fine smoke. That was a dram with a surprise effect. I'm surprised BUT NOT thrilled. We don't become friends.

    Wood, pepper, slightly spicy, wood tannins, bitter. Flexible for 50%. Aftertaste is short

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Light peat that melts in a soft atmosphere, but also very malty with some fruits too ripe. On the palate: 50% really? What flexibility. Strength and finesse, superb presence, malt is really in the spotlight, with this light peat wire. Finish very long and well spiced, slightly peaty. With a little water, the sweetness increases on the nose. On the other hand, it loses all its structure and intensity in the mouth and becomes very watery. To have a whisky whisper and take a picture of his face when he discovers it is an Indian whisky after he says it's very good.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

  8. Don Cassi scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    The nose starts off sweet and sour and relatively malty with only light fruit (apricot) and floral aromas in the background. The increased alcohol content is noticeable but not disturbing.

    The alcohol tingles in the mouth, then it releases sweet and sour fruit notes (again apricot), which spread further in the finish. In addition, there is a bit of bitter oak and a small, smoke trail (rather in the direction of warm smoke). In the end there is a slight association with dark beer.
    Length: 6/10

    All in all a relatively classic malt that I would have blindly located in the Scottish Highlands. The increased alcohol content and the light smoke set it apart from the competition in this price range.

    Grade: 2
