    the whisky tastes like barbecue. Not suitable for everyone and certainly not for every day. But if it fits, then it's perfect.

      Barbecue sauce, peppers, sneakers in March

    You can do that for the price called up. Fresh nose, cold ash, with a hint of tangerine. Less fruity on the palate. A little metallic, of course. The alcohol is hardly noticeable, which is also a shortcoming at the same time. The whisky is already too thin for me in the aroma load to celebrate it. Cold cigarette ash paired with citrus fruits, especially oranges / mandarins, a pleasantly subtle sweetness to it - and that's it. The finish is almost non-existent, but with bem € 35 malt it doesn't have to be. In short, you get what you pay for, and that suits me so far. Others would call it daily dram ...

    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
      84 84
      Medium-length finish, with some oak spice.

    Aha finally drink to strengthen the social conscience: -]. With a donation to the Shepard. Over time I find it even better, very pleasant, 1 point more, great value for money
    • Nose

      Definitely smells stronger than it is. Coal ash maritime, that must be a caol ila. Campfire, cold smoke but also sweet caramel notes are very well balanced
    • Taste
      87 87
      Ash but also full sweet directly. Caramel and juicy ripe pears. Then another 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 doesn’t bother, there’s a load of aromas

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

    • Nose
      82 82
      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.

    The whisky has a smoky, dirty smell. It's definitely not a whisky for everyday dram.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Smoky, dirty, leathery, paprika
    • Taste
      77 77
      Smoky, dry ash, paprika, salty, peppery, alcoholic heat

      Long lasting, smoky

    This one is a no-brainer if you like your whisky like a summer barbecue and at a reasonable price. At 37 € this is a catch. Spicy barbecue sweetness. Glad I tried it.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Nicely oily against the glass for its probably rather low age and 43 % ABV. Smoked Spices; peppers, dried tomato, a good sweet barbecue rub. Something slightly metallic and a salty sea breeze. Satisfying.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Sweet. Red berries, banana, oranges and a bit of salt. Peaty but not overwhelming. Not as much smoke on the palate as was to be expected from the nose. Caramel and spices. Nice.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Short to medium, which is a bit shorter than I expected. Oak wood, sweetness and spices, a hint of banana. Good.
