  1. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A powerful and rich age-old mole, branded smoke and peat are pushed into the background, on the oak scene in all its glory, very much like Ben Riach, lovers of oak juice will have to court, I personally do not attract so much oak, but I will give due - the product is very high quality .
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, processed noble tree, warm wood dust, carpenter's lacquer notes, thinner, grindstone, lemon peel, only in the background light smoke, smoke and smoked smoke are present in the background.
    • Taste
        Oak, a lot of oak, pepper-lemon wave, lemonade, again the oak, in the background echoes of peat and smoke, fruit tones, creamy sweetness, burnt biscuits, condensed milk.
    • Finish
      Astringent-oak, orange peel, creamy caramel, burnt biscuits, light beer, warming, long-lasting.
