  2. Forrest scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Smoked, light marine peat. With aeration some fruits appear (peach and pear). Becomes as greedy then after a long, slightly floral moment. Very nice nose.

    Palate: Light peat with citrus (grapefruit) and very saline.

    Finale: Quite acidic, citrus and touches of salt.

  3. Pépé scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A nice whisky that offers a nice balance of marine peat and fruits, with a long finish.
    • Nose
      Nice nose, between light marine peat and classic fruity, like apple. A little vanilla, slightly malty, notes of flowers in the background. And this marine aspect, fishy where joins some notes of fuel, mercurochrome. I love this nose, well balanced. It lacks just a little explosiveness.
    • Taste
      Nice sequence: malt, lemon, smoke, apple. In the end, a little more salty. A nice balance between a fine peat and exotic fruits that develop as and when. Apricot. Not too aggressive alcohol and "pretty full" texture
    • Finish
      Finale long, peaty fish, a chouïa malt too. She remembers us this whisky a while, very well.

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Tasted "blind".

    Nose: Peat, cereals and cream pie.
    In the mouth, a little peat, drying of the mouth.
    Short final.

  7. Feusi scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Really an interesting drop, I would not have expected. Fruity sweet with pleasant smoke in the nose. Sweet and soft, fruity with honey and vanilla. More medium to long finish, very pleasant to drink with earthy and peaty notes on the palate.

  8. Volanne scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    One of the most enjoyable "all audience" peated malts I've ever tasted.
    Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:

    • Nose
      Peat, fruit and great elegance. Phenols are identified immediately, but very hardly do phenols appear with such gentleness, freshness and restraint. Nothing catchy, but a perfect mingling with a very natural fruitiness. Gallons of orange juice freshly squeezed, and the slightly bland but so nice freshness of the star fruit. Of a diaphanous lightness and free of all alcoholic footprint, the whole stuff, that could be considered as lacking of caracter, is strangely captivating instead.
    • Taste
      The attack is mild, with delicate vanilla. Starts on a slightly frustrating feeling of high dilution, which isn't that surprising after the nose. And now, time for the divine surprise, if not the miracle: Alcohol, for the first time, grows bigger. Mouth, while remaining extremely fluid, grows in power and structure. And above all, this charming and pleasant malt turns into an exotic bomb worth of the finest Benriach, full of passion fruits and guava, beautifully set off by a return of a gentle peat and a pinch of liquorice.
    • Finish
      Turns off quietly on cold ashes and a slight bitterness.

    Color :

    Nose :
    Here is a whisky very delicate, subtle and elegant.

    A nose slightly
    smoked, finely vanilla and a little spicy.

    With aeration
    some fruits appear, apple, peach and pear very ripe.

    He becomes more and more
    more floral and sweet with some waxy notes.

    Mouth :
    What a treat in the mouth, it is also fine and balanced.

    We have a good dose
    fruit, grapefruit, peach, citrus fruits and a touch of vanilla.

    In the mouth also we have
    this light smoke due to the wood which brings a nice complexity.

    At the end of the mouth
    beautiful floral notes on heather.

    Long final between
    the acidity of citrus fruits and touches of salt.

  10. Jeep51 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Too bad the exotic fruits were lost en route.
    • Nose
      Fine peat, the nose is fine and discreet, a little fruit (apple, pear), grassy side. The nose is all lightness and subtlety.
    • Taste
      Well structured, beautiful roundness. Peat, fat, gradually invades the mouth. lemon and a hint of citrus (mandarin). Then we turn to liquorice
    • Finish
      Earthy and cold ashes. Beautiful aromatic persistence
