    • Nose
      93 93
      Wow!!! What a fantastic nose!
      Incredibly creamy, caramel-like, round, balanced and paired with a very subtle, fine smokiness. MEGA GOOD
    • Taste
      90 90
      The taste mirrors the aromas of the nose. The brandy cask comes out and is overtaken by the coastal aroma and light smoke. The alcohol is extremely well integrated for 59.1%!
    • Finish
      90 90
      The whisky fades away long and intense. Again, there is nothing to complain about. The brandy finish doesn't look superimposed and goes great with Orkney whisky.

      Conclusion:
      Mark Watt did everything right with this first release, which was only bottled for the Watt Whisky Buds. Very brave to let the malt ripen in a brandy cask. Seldom have I been as convinced of a finish as in this case. However, I am also a friend of Brandy :-)

      I am glad that I participated directly in Mark Watt's crowdfunding campaign. I gladly accepted the waiting time of about 6 months.
