  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Smoke bomb, a lot of vanilla, quite young, peppery, slightly drier on the finish than the normal 10s. Pretty wild.

  7. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A great expression of a young NAS whisky.

    (Rating interval 85-88)
    • Nose
      Peat smoke, deli meat, smoked salty ham, iodine, citrus, i think it's lemon juice and white sugar.
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, great texture. The peat is not as strong as suggested from the nose. Oak wood, vanilla, pepper corns and soil.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and substantial with sweet smoky barbecued meat and cracked black pepper.

  8. drkrylov scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Expansive and complex.
    • Nose
      Rich heavy nose with a vague floral touch.
    • Taste
      Smooth for the strength. Creamy with an ashy dryness. Smoky.
    • Finish
      Toffeish with a spicy burst. Smoke lingers.

    Was aged for five years before being finished in a quarter cask for seven months, the size of the cask is quite small, thus does not require such a long maturation.
