  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose: green apple, slightly dusted, candy ...
    Taste: young, not bad ... easy and simple ...
    Finish: weak and not long.
    Overall nice, but no more.

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A real Jekyl & Hyde malt, parts were good others not so, not particularly well balanced a rollercoaster if you will but overall not too bad and if you take into it is only 10 years old, it is ok perhaps a few more years of maturation would have rounded the profile out?
    • Nose
      83 83
      Light , fruity, zesty nose, which is slightly grassy with it. There is some peat and a hint of marmite which sounds quite heavy but is the opposite, slight honey and and the marmite note is mire like twiglets, and the grassy note is more like dried hay.
    • Taste
      85 85
      At first this is all on chemicals, a little soapy , some detergent notes, slightly metallic that sort of thing, notes like these are obviously have an initial negative impact.
      There is a little toffee and some spice from white pepper but for 40% this is harsh, tastes even younger than 10 years. The fruit aspect is mainly apple and pear skins but it is in the background.
      A little caramel does come out mixed with a little lemon juice and then the peat and pepper notes get a second wind and add a much needed layer of complexity but more importantly extra enjoyment and to be honest saves this dram,
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is quite long for 40% with the peat remaining but also drying with the metallic note returning but it is only a minor negative
