    Beautiful balanced Campbeltown malt that knows how to please.
    • Nose
      Color: Yellow Gold;

      Scent: Nice sweetness accompanied by grassy notes complemented by malt and light fruits (peaches and pineapple). Very round and balanced. In the background sherry and a delicate pinch of salt;
    • Taste
      Taste: sweet and fruity. Soon pepper is added and becomes malty. This sweetness always remains present. Later sprinkled a dash of sherry over it;
    • Finish
      Finish: again sweet, malty, fruity. A nice oak flavor appears.

  3. RJKrueger scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    For an 18-year-old, it brings relatively little complexity, but significant wood influences. Those who like it will certainly find better grades.
    • Nose
      84 84
      A little light grapes, green apple, light citrus notes, some vanilla, hazelnut.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Very dry with clear oak, little fruit and sweetness, clearly bitter notes, towards the end some leather and tobacco, fermented tea.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The wood also dominates in the finish, musty earth and leather, a little liquorice.
