  3. Fränky Roock scored this whisky 77 points Member Senior

    In conclusion, this is a nice entry into the world of smokers, I like it, no more - no less
    • Nose
      A very nice fruity nose - bright fruits, grapes, slightly citrus - with surprisingly little smoke for me, very pleasant
    • Taste
      in the mouth then a nice smoky note, nothing blatant but beautifully integrated in the sweetness, light wood notes
    • Finish
      in the finish but surprisingly long in the subtle smoke. In conclusion, this is a nice entry into the world of smokers

  5. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Joa, was rather a weak start, certainly something for absolute beginners in the Peated genre, too bad because the individual notes are quite nice.
    • Nose
      Very reserved, you have very fine and distant light sea notes together with a long-extinct campfire, but far from real smoky Scots reminds me just by the very subtle and light citrus notes it very much to Caol Ila, also the white grapes are there , nice but too weak
    • Taste
      Here, too, a weak start, one has eigtl. The same as in the nose, first here the citrus acid, a little green apple, then a bit of soot and autumn leaves, bitter, young oak is quite discreet in the background
    • Finish
      Even in its finer form, the smoke and soot are superimposed on the remainder here, a little green apple with a bitter shell, in short

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    Interestingly complex, but mild and gentle. Pleasant floral notes like
    strolling thru an orchid farm. A splash of water will bring you the
    lychee and pineapple aroma (Yes, like Sauvignon Blanc). Light trace of
    peat.

    Palate:- Light, juicy sweet and malty. Lightly peat like burn wood, and crisp at the back.

    Finish:- Citrus and light caramel finish. Medium length.
    — at The Whiskey Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  8. Jean-Brice scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    nice to drink without pretension
    • Nose
      smoke peat all diluted
    • Taste
      aqueous
    • Finish
      short

  9. maltaholic scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Barely smoke, quite mild, very different from most smokers, aromatic, spicy-sweet, very nice variety.
