    From the perspective of the PLV, this is a buy recommendation. Also, you lose the impression that it is just a blend. Peppery smoke reminiscent of Talisker. Just noticed :-)

      Malty sweet, spicy and leathery with a pleasant smoke. Slight citrus note with light fruits. The vanilla comes through now. Pfeffrig before it starts. Class !

      You could say full pipe of pepper and earthy leather. The smoke immediately combines the sweetness with orange peel and malt. Delicious ! This is a dangerously tasty blend with enough complexity for the price. Good choice. A masterpiece.

      Medium to long and very balanced. Slightly bitter and peppery, it is on the palate. Afterwards very pleasantly chocolat sweet and with a small fruit plate he leaves the stage.

    • Finish
      60 60
      actually after 7 years to be open in the bottle, it is not too bad, still pretty strong still hangs good coffee light,? sweet. my points can be too long in the bottle of the whiskey?

  5. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sweet, lightly medicinal, wood, some vanilla. Overall a flowery whisky.

    Taste: Sweet and sour. Oak and a touch of yeast. Hint of smoke, but very restrained. Nothing like some someheads nowadays. Creamy vanilla cake. Some fruitiness.

    Body: Rounded medium body.

    Finish: Medium- rather full of flavour. Sweet apricots, some candies and vanilla cream.

    Price: Bought this one for 45,- euro in Albania. Which is far less than current prices. But still 45,- euro is a good price, wouldn't pay more though.

    Presentation: Rather nice and informative.

  8. m884 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Some slight peat and smoke, citric, a bit flowery and hints of some solvent/rubber

    Mouth: very soft, flowery, oily, pepper and honey

    Finish: Oily, medium long, smoke, flowery, a bit tanins

    Comments: Quite full flavor despite its 43% vol. and the Talisker comes trough quite noticeable imo. All in all a very well balanced and enjoyable whisky that is highly drinkable. I like it!

  9. peathead scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Nose: some minerals, grass, slightly peated, lavender.  After the second tasting I can`t smell much more at first, but when I added some water it opens up: mint, vanilla, some flowers, slichty smokey.
    Palate: It lacks charachter, no punch what so ever, sweetish.  Again some grass, flowes, slight trace of peat??  The second tasting: see nose.
    Finish: short, too short.  Even the second time everything fades quite quickly.  Pitty.

    Not my cup of tea.  Not bad, but that`s about it.  This would be a perfect whisky while playing cards.

  10. Willie JJ scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    This is great fun to drink, but it doesn't have the poise of a great single malt. Incredibly good value though.
    • Nose
      The initial burst of fruit and flowers is quickly caught up by the
      oily shellfish and gentle smoke. The peated malts certainly dominate,
      but the speysiders make their presence felt too. Nice but like most
      vattings its not the easiest thing to sort out.
    • Taste
      sweet smouldering ash with a salty/sweet interplay and light white fruit juices and burnt malt.
    • Finish
      Plenty of salty, ashy character here and much less sign of the Speysiders.
