Whisky Reviews for Croftengea 2005 DR

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. hsmithjr scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A solid lighter peated whisky, that is a nice alternative to the heavy hitters of Islay.

    My first Croftengea, and it will not be my last.

      Peat is there, but it isn't overpowering. A mix of straw and green grass. Honey, lemon bars, and some vanilla extract. Slightly floral. Kind of has that smell of spring. Nice.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Spicy and sweet. Sweet lemons. Apricots. Fruit flavored chewing gum (think Juicyfruit). Peat. Undercooked scones. Salted caramel.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Long, hot, and spicy. Citric. Baked sugar cookies. Soft floral perfume.
