  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Sweet, soft, barely smoke, but some bland notes (old socks?) That I do not like. Therefore, nothing for me. The boy is better.

    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

  9. 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
