  1. karloff scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    This was a sample courtesy of Holborndrinker.
    Like the other sample of new make he sent me, it shows promise and quality.
    • Nose
      85 85
      When I read Holborndrinker's notes he said rhubarb and I thought, what?
      I don't know if it's stuck in my mind or he's right, maybe with custard.
      The peat is there but it's more like a dead fire.
      With water it goes more medicinal.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The peat is definitely more prominent on the taste.
      This will put hairs on your chest and your tongue.
      There seems to be a plastic note.
      With water the plastic note has gone and brings out the fruit which is well balanced with the peat.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The finish is long and I should still taste it in the morning.
      That balance goes right to the death.

  3. holborndrinker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A really good taste, the peat is overwhelmed by the alcohol. The initial taste is strange but remarkably good value - as a base spirit it shows great promise - bag a kit as the tasting is informative too. Reminds me of Wray & Nephew Overproof Rum
    • Nose
      84 84
      Rhubarb yogurt with a hint of peat - unusual.
    • Taste
      86 86
      An explosion in the mouth - remarkably fruity.
    • Finish
      85 85
      A clean taste although the alcohol packs a massive punch.
