8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.73 points

  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Little damp, old cellar, citrus. vanilla. savoury note. Hint of sulpher (I assume this is peat smoke). The alcohol burn doesn't fade away quickly.

    Taste: As expected with a lowland: load of citrus. But also vanilla and that little fade hint of peat.

    Body: medium. nothing really to say about it...

    Finish:short-medium The peat is most prevalent here. Hard candy sweets. some citrus.

    Price: Reasonable. Given the story of the distillery everyone should buy a bottle.

    Presentation: Sober but decent.

    Comments: This might be the very first whisky with peat in it which I honestly can appreciate.
