    It's just spirit. With potential, but spirit.
    • Nose
      78 78
      Initially a pleasant sherry nose, but after a few moments it breaks apart and leaves only grain and silo behind. The barrel flavors are not enough to cover the New Make. With water a little more mature and maritime.
    • Taste
      72 72
      Sharp, too young. Somewhat sweet and Coastal Character is noticeable.
    • Finish
      80 80
      The best of it all. Goes fast but with a pleasant aroma combination. Unfortunately, it stuns the taste buds a little too much.

    Strong alcohol in the nose, herbs and grains, dry int the mouth but beautifully sweet and mature. Hints of peach and vanilla. Great product, great young distillery with a lot of potential (but rather expensive drink, retail price in Belgium is 81EUR/bottle).
    • Nose
      79 79
      Strong alcohol in the nose, herbs and grains. Almost something meaty. Hint of almonds and mushrooms. And at the end there is something framboise-like.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Dry in the mouth, sweet and strong (alcohol strong) but it is gentle. Unbelievable that this is a spirit and not even a full body whiskey (2.75Y old and not 3Y). The taste is beautiful, it evolves and generates something peach-like.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Peach and hint of vanilla in the aftertaste, cigars come in and then we get a darker palet of dust, leather and even some bitter tones.

  9. nallacam scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    So far I have been able to gain something from all four releases, whereby I liked 2016 & 2019 the best.
    In 2019 I had a blind tasting and out of 16 participants no one came up with the idea that it could "only" be Spirit.
    A strong somewhat rough taste .... if it came from the promised island of Islay, it would be a different story for many ;-)
