    What a privilege to be able to taste such an artisanal and honest product. To know where the barley grew, when it was distilled, etc.
    It brings sensations so different from other whiskys that it is difficult to give a rating. Some could give a 65, others a 98.
    I am won over by this "natural" approach and by the result.

    I do not recommend adding water. If it reveals some very slightly smoky notes in the mouth, you lose intensity in the nose and in the finish.

    This whisky is the Rolls Royce of the Lowlands. It makes this region shine as it deserves.

      Without hesitation: coconut. Not the milk, but the smell that escapes from the nut in the sun. Magnificent.
      After a while, you can smell the wheat fields, still in the sun. Then, the pure butter shortbreads. After about 30 minutes, the smell of coconut unfortunately tends to diminish. But how do you manage to wait all this time?

      Deliciously long. Very very slight trace of smoke. Fat cereals.

    As always, the nose is awesome, in the mouth it is surprisingly gruff, quite a lot of bitter aromas, but they still harmonize well. Different, bitter, but the same high level as the previous bottlings. However, the price called is now very absurd ...
    • Nose
      Sweet, floral, creamy, citrus, yes, it really smells like creamy cream cake with lemon peel, after a while it is a bit tart, grassy, the citrus notes are a bit in the foreground. Over time, sweeter, vanilla. The nose is really a look.
    • Taste
      tart, zesty, but also a creamy mouthfeel, almost creamy, oak is also there, but the bitterness is quite surprising here. Lots of lemon peel.
    • Finish
      tart, citrus, oak, mint, almost cooling, surprisingly tart, citrus peel.

    A difficult malt for me - it fluctuates on my palate between incredibly fruity tasty, but mostly too bitter and not too sweet - whereby the fluctuation shows up more than pulsating - you drink more of it it gets better, but I still don't like bitter in I am not willing to compromise the amount and the price tag
    • Nose
      88 88
      slightly tingly like sparkling wine but at the same time very fine, dusty stone flour, increasingly yellow-fruity - quite dynamic and elegant - looks a bit older than 12y
    • Taste
      86 86
      Pear, mineral, a little dusty, full of vanilla, quince, light green wood - but also freshly sawn, slightly resinous strips, moderately sweet
    • Finish
      86 86
      dark chocolate, roasted nuts, nougat, butter, lightly burnt caramel

    Wonderful individual old school Lowland Style Malt Whisky. A lot to be expected from this artisanal Farm Distillery in future... Great!

    Japanese-style value for money!

      The nose is quite closed but I detect a rather light fruity / herbaceous side, pulling on hay. A little of

      In the mouth, the aromas of the nose are still expressed timidly and are accompanied by a little mineral and iodine.
      It's rather balanced between the aromas, nothing really standing out.
      On the other hand, it is the feeling of a poorly integrated alcohol that takes over

      Astringent and bitter.

    Great representative of the Lowland style. Flowery, light and concentrated.

    Very tasty Daftmill. Very firm and with light wood notes. But also pure fruit salad. Gets better and more balanced over time.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Sweet malt, vanilla, Kelloggs Frosties with milk, fruit salad, lemon zest, orange peel, some freshly cut wood, cinnamon stars, lemon cake

      Citrus peel, good pressure from alcohol, warming, oak-spicy, creamy, limes
    • Finish
      87 87
      Initially a bit woody in the finish, then a lot more lemon peel and zest, creamy and medium-long finish
