  1. juju cassoulet scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A pleasant whisky, young but can at the same time serve as a starter to spend more time in it.
    • Nose
      smoke, butter / cooked fat
    • Taste
      oily, cold ash, pleasant wood, integrated alcohol.
    • Finish
      Fairly round, buttered.
      It's simple but well done

  2. jujutoulouse scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Nose of dry smoke, with a fruity background, lemon and pineapple. In the mouth it is powerful, on pineapple a little acid, slightly dirty, a hint of coffee on the finish

  3. Tastingbros scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Fiouuuuu!

    On the nose: there is peat (obviously), but a very nice presence of very ripe exotic fruits

    On the palate: What amplitude! A saline peat, very oily and very fruity! Creamy. Exotic fruit custard, peat smoke!

    In the end: peat oil! Clearly, it sticks to the palace. Add a drop of sea water, a teaspoon of candied exotic fruit juice and we have this magnificent Croftengea
