  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very round, soft whisky. I like it better than the Brodir.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Heavy sweetness, peat that reminds of cigar smoke, seaweed, salty-maritime, red berries
    • Taste
      89 89
      Soft on the start, sweetness with the smoke, mouth filling, red currant, very well integrated alcohol
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium length, the wort and peat smoke remain the longest.

    Delicious.
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Gold with some copper

      Nose:
      A nice, dense smoky note first creeps out of the glass. I don't think it's that badly medical. What he's got is a lot of salt and shoe wax. Then comes moist topsoil and a meaty aroma. Has something of chicken broth. Behind it lies the vinous aroma. With raspberries, strawberries and chocolate. He has a really nice, slightly sweet nose. I like it very much. With a little time in the glass, more vanilla and a little coconut will prevail.
    • Taste
      Soft, but bitter, smoky start. The smoke looks rather dry and brings a peppery load. Behind it currently this subtle berry sweetness and again the damp earth. Significantly more musty and salty with the second sip. Here now also a slight medical impact. Looks more metallic and rusty on the second sip. Rust remover steam and grain. Rancid fat and musty lemon. Somehow something of beer mash and bread.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. First rusty metallic with dry smoke. Then salty sweetness with cereals.

  4. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    If someone blindfolded me and put this and a Brodir in front of me, I wouldn't know who is which
    • Nose
      maritime; nice smoke and an intense sweetness; in the background there are deep fruit notes
    • Taste
      sweet; fruity; cold smoke, ash; sweet again; Red fruits
    • Finish
      marine smoke with salt and seaweed; turns into cold smoke; again and again fruit; a hint of citrus

  6. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A very straightforward, strong and easy to drink smoker. I didn't really notice the port influence, I found the "hardness" of the peat smoke to be extremely extreme, maybe because it was young and the grassy component was reinforced by the port barrel?
    • Nose
      strong, vegetal peat smoke, sweet notes, hints of fruit, but the peat board flattens everything.
    • Taste
      nice combination of sweetness and spice, with a good push of peat and alcohol, some oak, slight bitterness
    • Finish
      long on peat smoke, spices, some oak.
