    For my money I was a lifesaver, but I feel that the alcohols are young, covered by a trail of light Ailovsky haze, but for a sophisticated company it’s just the conversation.

    Nice peaty infusion, almost had the impression to drink a refreshing peaty tea. And it is not way more expensive than a cup of tea actually (bought for about 20€ in France). Not too complex, but has taste and is not boring, perfect for the price.

    Apple/lime/some I-don't-know-what's-in-it herbal infusion/pepper/soft cake-y peat

  4. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Iodized nose, light peat with hints of guano, limestone and wet grass. Thick humidity, medicinal touch, quite spicy vanilla, floral hints, white grapes. In the mouth, it is a little tart, we unearth a hint of pear and honey, a little taste of iron filings. Little spices, white pepper and herbs from Provence. The finish is sparkling, peppery without being too much, a little rough. It doesn't take long on the palate. Mirabelle plums and small yellow apples.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Maritime, salty, slightly peaty (relative), sweet, soft and yummy. Pleasant, but special, in a good way.
    • Nose
      Smoky peaty, but very weak and very shy. Maybe the 40% owed. Nevertheless, the nose is quite nice, nice round with clearly peat.
    • Taste
      Smoke, peat, some fruit, something "wet sock".
    • Finish
      Smoke, peat, some fruit, some menthol.

    Probably the best in the smell, the insignificant taste it squeezes down, but for the price it's not bad
    • Nose
      Green apples combined with sweet gum, glue, iodine, peat and salt
    • Taste
      The taste is slightly pale - oily, peat, iodine and a little salt
    • Finish
      In reverberation mainly iodine and peat with a spicy finish

    Nice whisky, though the sea breeze is not so refreshing and the fruits are not so juicy as in versions with age statement. 77/100
