  1. 33rdCASK scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Bright, bold, but because of his youth too simple. At the finish it is unpleasantly bitter.

  3. molar3rd scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    color : light straw , the lightest of all three.

    nose: Lots and lots of lemon notes. reminds me of the CI unpeated, lemony theme, but with the added phenols, peat and smoke . very fresh, green grass, green apple peel. the ABV is evident.. a nose is different than both 12 and 18. i do think it’s really unique.

    Palate: Obviously young and kicking! strong peat, with sweet middle and mouth coating. Oily. Salty notes appear after you chew on it a bit. yep! sea spray salty! what a nice touch!

    Finish : heaps of peat. very warming and long.some bacon notes and spice. the longest of all three in terms of finish. Ace.
