  1. MicMac scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Very pleasant complex whisky with lots of sweetness, citrus notes and well-embedded peat smoke
    • Nose
      Light tingle but mild, slightly warm smokiness with salt and citrus fruits, dry fruits. Gradually a sweet vanilla note develops well mixed with lemon oil
    • Taste
      Honey notes, citrus fruits embedded in light bacon peat smoke notes, sweet vanilla mixes with salt, the smoke remains discreetly in the background
    • Finish
      Sweetness, vanilla, citrus fruits remain, grassy steppe, the peat smoke remains - not intrusive - well embedded
