  1. Lucas Falchero scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    An excellent set, very rich nose, very consistent in the mouth. A perfectly integrated alcohol. Superb!
    • Nose
      A very impressive nose of peat and farm. The dirty hay. Then a scent of cardamom and anise settles. Mango and pineapple. The fresh flower is also appearing.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, on the contrary, it is very light. A little paved farmyard, of course. But more sugar, pineapple. A little smoke. A little spicy, but not too much. The texture is very nice. Alcohol very light and well integrated. Very homogeneous.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, a little peppery. We stay on the peat. And we think of Suze.

  2. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Extremely invasive peat at the first nose: impressive! A rubber veil, pineapple and a smell reminiscent of a bouquet of fresh flowers complete the nose. In comparison the mouth contrasts by its lightness, the texture is aqueous on an aromatic peat tarred, salty, anise. It is drunk alone, very nice, alcohol is perfectly integrated. The finish is long without being insane on the peat with a return of farm notes and a very slight zan side, light smoke of wood fire. It leaves a taste of bitter plants reminiscent of gentian. Sugar is almost absent, the whole is very melted, harmonious and complex.
