  1. spigray scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I was very astonished after I had the first release not as pleasant as this one. But ok that´s 6 years ago and my tongue might have changed. This is a lovely dram!
    • Nose
      87 87
      quite some smoke in a bed of garden herbs like parlsley and dill. The peat reminds me of some Indian whiskies I have tried (Paul John). Bandages. Linseed oil and something fishy. Orange juice ( the cheap one). Of course we cannot expect any complexity here but it´s a very decent nose.

      Very good indeed, add some malt, a good amount of that, quite somesome salt. Sweet apples, a bit of mint. Perfect balance of smoke, sweet fruitiness, freshness and malt.
