  1. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    A rather pleasant nose, slightly oily peat carried by lemon peel, a little apricot and quince jam, and at the bottom, at the bottom, ashes, a medicinal point.
    In the mouth, it's quite simple, light caramel and peat, nuts, always apricot. But the pepper begins to pound the palate, it scratches the mouth, it's a final like a fragmentation grenade, it burns in the true sense of the word. However, I can sense other spices, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, and a cinnamon shadow when the fire is gone.
    The resemblance to the Talisker Skye is striking, but the nose is less iodized, and the final much stronger.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Simple and pleasant, light, soft, I really like the general style of the distillery, so, perhaps, the score will come out slightly overpriced, but nevertheless ..
    • Nose
      Raw, cool, light smoky smoked notes, jerky, wet wool, dried caviar, manure, wet hay.
    • Taste
      Soft, delicate, moderately sweet, light oak, a little pepper, dried caviar.
    • Finish
      Light, airy, pepper, weak ginger tones, light oak bitterness, herbal notes.

    I think this is good value and if the nose was better it would have scored higher

    I like this, a simple profile and it works.
    • Nose
      Fudge, prune, steamed cabbage, caramel, wet leaves
    • Taste
      Big blast of peat initially, honey, hint of orange, .cream, faint taste of iron bru mixed in with ginger
    • Finish
      Reasonable length and pleasantly sweet.

  6. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    This is the recommendation for me, if a beginner wants to cuddle comfortably in smoke, in the sweet chocolate-smoke combo is completely peaceful and the whisky is good and easy to smell and taste. Works in the whisky bar regularly and is well received, for 40 € in the liter bottle to outrageously cheap.
    • Nose
      intense and open, milk chocolate, medium strong (would say, about Bowmore level), sweetish, round smoke, with a slight sweet earthy note
    • Taste
      soft and round and creamy and holds what the nose promises, smoky chocolate, nut nougat, a small touch of resin / tree needles, does not bite, does not scratch, not bitter
    • Finish
      medium, and here comes next to the milk chocolate but still some bite - pepper and and the smoke sounds a bit bitter

  7. Unclimbability scored this whisky 70 points Member Senior

    Colour: E150a

    Body: Medium

    Nose: Lots of spice, tonnes of cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, touch of smoke. Some sweetness with a cakey vanilla.

    Taste: Fruity with lots of spicy cinnamon and some fruit and vanilla.

    Finish: Short/Medium length. Spice with some smoke and salt.

    Lightly peated, NAS. This is better, I like the cinnamon note on this.

    70/100

  10. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Pleasant wood-burning smoke. Becomes slightly phenolic over time. Honey, some garden herbs. A trace of cinnamon. Vanilla and a fresh, cooling note (menthol?). Laugenbrezel with nice salt on it. Everything was pretty well tuned.
    • Taste
      Oily, light oak. Amazingly little smoke. Some coffee. A sweet that I can not match comes up. Nutty. The cinnamon note is now minimal there.
    • Finish
      Medium long, slightly dry and slightly bitter. But where is the smoke?
