  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Color: dark rose gold. Since the whisky is not colored, I assume a certain proportion of sherry casks. Overall a good smoky Islaymalt for the price, not very complex. Would estimate it to be 5 to 7 years. The taste profile is reminiscent of a Caol Ila

      In addition to greasy barbecue and grill smoke, seaweed and a sea breeze, red currants. Some vanilla in the background.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Red berries, a light sweetness next to the present peat smoke, which is not too strong. Overall well rounded. Alcohol well integrated.
    • Finish

      Medium-length finish, with some oak spice.

    Aha finally drink to strengthen the social conscience: -]. With a donation to Shepard.

      Definitely smells stronger than it is. Charcoal ash maritime, that must be a caol ila. Campfire cold smoke but sweet caramel notes are very well balanced
    • Taste

      But ashes are also completely sweet. Caramel and juicy ripe pears. Then an unripe banana. Very beautiful. I like it, not just this young and smoky story. I have to say great value for money. Well pepper is also added. But the alcohol content does not bother, there is also an aroma load

      Wow the ban pear compote tastes almost stronger than the smoke in the finish, really good. Increases

    • Nose

      Peat and malt sweetness, slightly gummy behind the malt.
      In the course of salty with slight hints of ham.
      Nice nose.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Smoke, herbs, salt, light notes of butter
    • Finish
      78 78
      For me, oak wort, smoke and salt combine to form light coffee notes. Overall medium finish.

      I find it surprisingly good in the nosing. A lot of ham smoke, pear, salt, a little sweetness, a lot of Caol Ila and a little Talisker. Alcohol doesn't squeeze.
    • Taste
      84 84
      More sweetness, more breadth than expected, smoke in the finish, salt again and a slight bitterness.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Rather short finish.
