    Very nice Nose, Taste and finish. An allrounder! Drink it!!
    • Nose
      Blind tasting:
      Like a inkbox. Oily. Loamy. Nature healing mud. Leather. Flowery. Some oak. Sweet mint. Ethereal. 
      Bright fruit...sour fresh apple. Little bit smoke.
    • Taste
      Sweet and smoky. Soft on the tongue. Fresh. Light bubblegum flavor...so slightly fruity bubblegum
      .

      Earthy. Smoke dominates the oak. This muddy is now also in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Long. Mouthwatering. Little bit sharp. Smoky and sweet in balance...with little bit bubblegum, oak and mud.

  7. [2stoned] aKu scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty complex smoker who is different from Islay's smoker but does not have to hide from them.
    • Nose
      strong sweet smoke, light village smell, the Portweinnoten are clearly present, sweet orange juice, caramel candy, wild herbs, with some time the smoke and the village back for even more caramel with vanilla, some strawberry jam with a hint of clove and a small hint of cinnamon
    • Taste
      sweet, creamy, again caramel sweet, orange sweet, gets spicier with some pepper and walnut
    • Finish
      long, tart chocolate pudding burned while cooking (sounds strange, but is delicious), then some herbs and behind a light leather note

  9. smaeksle did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Fine drop of one of my favorite distilleries. The smoky ones are all very well done. Grade: 2+
    • Nose
      Beautiful cold camp fresh smoke, a beautiful sweet. If you leave it longer, the smoke disappears and the sweetness stays. Nice portnotes and pleasantly harmonious.
    • Taste
      Soft, fruity and pleasant in the mouth. Perfect drinking strength. Some orange and a hint of ash are also found in the mouth. A few grapes get lost.
    • Finish
      Nice long and harmonious.
