  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nose on white wine a bit green, palate is quite impressive for such a young whisky, peat, citrus, good balance, very promising

  2. Captain Teague scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    My first AD / glad that some local dealers were not as greedy as the internet....

    N: fresh oak at the carpenter...pineapple, lemon decent cool peat and seaspray.. menthol... decent flower honey...iodine

    M: Fresh oak the tropical fruits again...slight candle wax ...honey..Menthol, iodine..touch of milk chocolate...ginger

    F: Ginger...ashy.. limoncello... Pimento..

    Very distellery driven which is not bad here it's a damn good destilate imo.. if I should describe it very short island peat, seaspray and spice mixed with highland texture and intense fruitiness + iodine ... definitely different and unique...like the idea that they're not trying to hide the youth behind some sweet wine and virgin Oak casks....just Bourbon an sherry in maybe the best percentage. Definitely very good for 5yo! Not too complex but round balanced and easily quaffable... Quite a long limoncello dominated finish..

    I don't have bad feeling giving this bottle 86 Pts.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet and ripe yellow fruits, tart notes, light peat, ashy wood, milk chocolate, forest honey, mineral notes. Very round and well balanced - some adult whiskys don't manage that.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Vanilla sauce, ginger, milk chocolate and ripe citrus fruits, peach, light wood, herbs, lively and round.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Feels more sherry than the taste, a lot of chocolate, yellow fruits and spices of various intensities, charcoal.

    Mainly off-notes. It's so bad I'll need to get a second sample to be sure the sample wasn't ruined somehow.
    • Nose

      Cardboard, plastic and clay.

      Plastic, cocoa, caramel, a whiff of smoke.

  5. Luigisim scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I like the style of peat, similar to Highland Park.
    Big potential in this distillery.

  7. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Quite a mature whisky for its young age. Nice combination of some gentle peat, fruits, saltiness. Very pleasant one.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Quite full,fruity, ripe fruits, citrus. Some subtle peat, earthy, ash, earthy. Some sea breeze. Also some hints of milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Some sparkling alcohol but not too hefty. More smokiness and peat now, without being an outspoken peated whisky. Earthy, some fruit, orange.
    • Finish
      86 86
      More power, more peat and smoke initially. Sweet notes, and fruity, orange. A bit mineral. Pretty long. Some sea weed.

  8. Stouby scored this whisky 81 points Member Junior

    Pale yellow. Nose: some peat, citrus, pear. Taste: sweet, barrel, sweet smoke, barrel, vanilla.

  9. eddi14 scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Wonderful nose of herbs and mint.
    The taste is herbal with a hint of hay and a little honey.
    But very alcoholic.
    I'm looking forward to the 10 year old bottlings.
