    I wonder who this entry level dram is intended for. With the low strength and the resulting tamed aromas, it certainly cannot convince the experienced enthusiasts. For a beginner, the dry flavors might be too much.

    With a changed label you often expect a different whisky. However, the specs have remained the same. With some hesitation, I opened the bottle. The old bottling has a delicious raw edge, and this one?
    • Nose
      86 86
      Vanilla, honey, sherry, malty, hay and…..the raw edge is present, peatsmoke, clay.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Vanilla, honey, grain, olives, grass, red fruit. Again a certain rawness, peatsmoke, orange and clay. Phew, the whisky doesn't disappoint me.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish could have been a little longer. Slightly spicy, vanilla, honey, red fruit and peat smoke in the background.

    Flaviar Whiskies of the Galaxy day 18.
    • Nose
      Peat/smoke, a little sweetness that might be caramel or toffee. Maybe a hint of maple syrup.
    • Taste
      Taste also is dominated by peat/smoke, but also has a lot of sweetness to back it up. Caramel and maybe honey.
