    beautiful malt with which I like the palate and especially the beginning of the finish very much.
    Very citrus and rather subtle smoky.
    • Nose
      85 85
      fresh, lots of citrus fruits, very light smoke, light maritime notes. After a long time, the smoke becomes more intense and peaty
    • Taste
      86 86
      It could be smoked fish, citrus fruits, light pepper, sweet, very light chocolate, maritime notes here too. Slightly bitter later
    • Finish
      87 87
      nice aromatic finish, sweet and only slightly smoky, flowery and fruity. Getting a bit bitter towards the end

    Pleasantly maritime, citrus-heavy smoker. The smoke is rather sweet and somewhat herbal. Then even more sweetness in the mouth. Quite light in character. Nothing complicated, but rather something for the side.

  4. pere scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    In a sense a quite decent, clean maritime style Port Ellen, but quite mellow and a kind of understating.
    • Nose
      Quite maritime, fruity sweetness, seaweed, a bit of salt.
    • Taste
      Salty, a bit of peat, smoke, maritime, a bit of sweetness.
    • Finish
      Salt, a bit of peat and smoke, spices, a bit of sweetness.

    • Nose
      Fresh. Garden fire. Grilled lemons. Dried mint leaves. Warm sand.
    • Taste
      Smoked fish with lemon. Black pepper, honey, milk chocolate, smoky ash.
