  1. Archer scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Very tasty, this fresh "green" nose ...
    The bread also tastes very good with this whisky, and goes well with the fine-dry finish.
    Blind tasting with mustard crust bread
    • Nose
      84 84
      Lemon mousse and branches freshly removed from the bark. Green apple, freshly mown wildflower meadow. Kiwi, gooseberry, melon. The nose is airy and light, a sunny spring day in the morning. Vanilla ice cream and honey bread. White chocolate, soft fudge.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Starts fruity with melons and oranges. Dry, with freshly split logs. Almonds, marzipan, vanilla, honey, toffee. Seasoning is on the rise, fine-bitter herbs are coming.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium long, dry and fine dry. The sweet fruits still resonate in the background.

  2. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very floury peat, almost suffocating smoke. Lemon tip. It smells of the countryside, the real one, the animals rolling in the grass, the hay a little dry, the slush, a little bousin. Over time, the white fruits stand out a little more. In the mouth, vanilla, coarse salt, smoked herring, the dry hay is still there, someone has probably just set it on fire. Some white fruit, found in the finish, it is rather long and quite fruity, surprising, it contrasts with the rest. We finish on the wood.

    • Nose
      86 86
      The nose starts with plenty of pear, followed by citrus that evolves into a light smoke and the end some vanilla. The smoke is much less than the name suggests. But a nice nose if you ask me.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Nice taste of sweet pears, honey, waxiness, which turns into a little smoke but no peat. Or am I losing taste, well I hope it's not Covid-19?
    • Finish
      85 85
      At the finish, which is not quit long, the main flavors are still standing, however the smoke is transforming to saltiness instead of the peat smoke.

      Quiet nice!
