    Dangerously Quaffable

    Secretly, I am hoping to discover a nice Loch Lomond, but so far to no avail. Perhaps I’ll get lucky with this Peated expression?

    The nose is surprisingly sharp, but very fruity at the same time. Think apples and pineapple, but in a smoky jacket. Reminds me a bit of Ledaig, but sweeter. And after a few moments, I do get some notes that lean towards vase water, but luckily it does not go there all the way. Interesting nose.

    Well, that body is poor. But the taste is surprisingly good. Smoky and sweet on loads of citrus, vanilla and European fruit. De smokiness becomes quite big, but the sweetness dominates. This is dangerously quaffable, in fact.

    The finish is medium long in which the smoke and sweetness battle it out. Sweetness bows.

    I heard that this one is unbalanced, but I do not believe this to be the case. The smoke and sweetness go hand-in-glove, while the oak remains subdued. Pleasant surprise. But it could be that this is linked to my preference for young Ledaig or Caol Ila. This one is in the same league.

    Far from terrible (and the blue nas w/o peat, for that matter). Bottled at decent 46% abv. this one surprised me positively. All in all a coherent bottling not many will be/were in need of maybe, but nonetheless pretty solid.

    Catastrophic. The smoke dances on the half-baked New Make flavor of the bad whisky. A single mark. I think the worst whisky I've ever tasted.

  6. MY MALTS scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    A strange smell rises directly in the nose ...
    Very shallow smokiness, short sweet wood and not much more ...
    Somehow unsatisfactory ... Let's see how it develops ... (03.03.2017) Has dissolved in the sauce pan in nicely ...

  10. Vegi scored this whisky 75 points Expert Junior

    A really promising nose, but this whisky lacks balance between its smoke and its other characteristics.
    • Nose
      Sweet, fruity, smoky. Smells really nice!
    • Taste
      Spicy caramel, with the smoke kicking in quite immediately.
    • Finish
      Medium long, but still too short for a peated whisky, in which the smoke is overpowering everything else.
