    Good for what it is, a young malt and entry to Islay.

  6. Albaron scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Tasty, easy drinking, quite mild, but a bit overcrowded for my taste with the mint, which I generally do not like so much
    • Nose
      lots of mint, some tingling alcohol, the smoke goes a bit in the mint load, there is also a hint of lemongrass, overall very mineral and in the background a little grainy
    • Taste
      Here the smoke comes through better and of course mint, then cereal nuts, a little vanilla
    • Finish
      the smoke continues to the finish and here remains the mint and vanilla, with some tannins

  7. Koalafant scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Unbelievable that a 3-year-old can be so mature.
    • Nose
      Slightly grassy but strong smoky note. Stings in the nose. Later then very subtle acacia honey
    • Taste
      Honey sweet, smoky and a hefty portion of pepper. Later slightly ethereal.
    • Finish
      Medium and warm. Burns something.

  8. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting 07-04-2015.
    • Nose
      Peat, nuts and briny - coastal and salt. Pepper cake and plums.
    • Taste
      Peat, smoke, spices and citrus - lemon. Later smoked ham.
    • Finish
      Medium drying with pepper, peat, salt and ashes.    

  9. Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    notes by Dr. James Swan (Whisky Consultant)
    • Nose
      Strong peaty aromas and a complex blend of pear drops, citrus and hints of mango
    • Taste
      An initial sweetness is followed by peat smoke and the mixed fruits
    • Finish
      The finish is long, clean and refreshing leaving hints of peat smoke and cloves

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The nose is quite nice, but in the taste and finish there's an overly briny note that I don't really dig.
    • Nose
      Lime, peat, gingerbread, orange and pepper. A mineral mustiness like a limestone mine.
    • Taste
      Peat, brine, liquorice / salmiak, lime, salt, smoked cod and orange.
    • Finish
      Briny peat, liquorice and lime.
