  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    The price in Sweden equals £27.50 which makes for an extremely good value.
    Without an age statement we have to assume it's on the younger side, which is evident in the lack of complexity.
    But that's made up for by very nice basic flavours, good balance and absolutely no off-notes.

      This has a very good peat-sherry balance on the nose.
      Neither is extreme or overpowering, rather nicely complementing each other.
      The sherry is sweet on dark plums and raisins, and the peat is a lightly sour tar smoke highland type.
      At 40% there's no noticeable alc fumes and barely any spice. Maybe some gentle gingerbread.
      A drop of water brings the peat more forward.

      Mouthfeel on arrival is a little thin.
      Sweet dark fruits are first in line, with a light peat sneaking up from behind.
      This gets more noticeable with the arrival of a pinch of spice.
      Chocolate and coffee with cream.
      Water should be used sparingly. A few drops opens it up a bit, making it sweeter, but it doesn't take much to drown it.
    • Finish

      About medium length. Rather eventless with a warming spice lasting the longest.
      Water mellows and shortens it, and gives it a slightly dry and sour death.

  3. nicegi scored this whisky 78 points Newbie

    Smelling a hint of smoke with light sweet. Very easy to drink. Tasting apple, honey, pineapple, cinnamon. Not very complex and short finish. Nice whisky with the good company.
