  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.

  2. 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.
