  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The nose was terrible, but on the palate and finish, this turned out to be a pleasant whisky.
    • Nose
      The nose is rather closed. It starts slightly salty on smoked halibut, olive oil and a bit of smoke. Some dried grasses. You will need to look hard to find any fruit. Patience delivers some coconut and apples. And a touch of vanilla. But unfortunately, it does nothing for me, this nose.
    • Taste
      It redeems itself somewhat on the palate. A lot of citrus, followed by apples, pears, vanilla, violets, nicely countered by olive oil and stockfish (you know, the dried fish that you can nibble on for hours). Towards the end a slight bitterness as if from grapefruit emerges, as does a salty tang.
    • Finish
      The finish, medium in length, emphasizes the mild peat and the brine.

  5. peatbogger scored this whisky 81 points Specialist

    • Nose
      Coastal maritime peat, not quite up to Islay level, but rich and salty.

      Mild citric with notes of yellow fruit.
    • Taste
      Peat is not as prominent as on the nose.

      Briney, salty, slightly sour.

      Followed by rich fruityness, pineapple, peach and a little grapefruit freshness.
    • Finish
      Medium lenght.

      Drying light peatyness, some salty seaweed.

  6. Andytka3 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    Nose:- Warm thick wave of peat, profound yet subtle. Warm almond bread, coastal note.

    Palate:- Marmalade sweet and balance with touch of peat and spiciness on the palate. Creamy.

    Finish:- Persistent trace of bitterness on throat, medium length. Lightly burn.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    • Taste
      Vanilla, pepper, peat, orange, peach and salt.
    • Finish
      Orange, peach, peat, marshmallow and salty.

  10. Ivynor scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    What, you dare to call it "peated", it's a joke? Well that said, it's not too bad, but barely better than an arran 10 or an original arran.
    • Nose
      Very finely smoked, but then very finely ... A little lemon, some wood, some vanilla. Very fresh at first and then heavier. Strange.
    • Taste
      Rather melted, full of cooked autumn fruits.
    • Finish
      Very sweet green fruits

  12. granella2003 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Salty aromas with notes of apple, pineapple, peat, malt and coconut
    • Taste
      Delicious flavors of peat, apple, vanilla and subtle hints of citrus and flowers. Starts acid and slowly but surely into a sweet taste. Complex and well balanced,
    • Finish
      A salty aftertaste with a strong presence of spices. A finish with the unmistakable flavor of peat central.

  13. Igor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This jolly dog may seem to be of plain character. Deceptively however. Its plainness presents its virtue at the same time. I thoroughly enjoyed it, even in spite of complexity shortage. Just 'cause it surely has a peculiar temper, a true one, which is precisely to my liking.
    • Nose
      Appetizing. Light phenolic notes, seaweeds,
      coastal freshness, smoked foods, herbs,
      spinach pie, a touch of vanilla, flower garden in the sunshine.
    • Taste
      Fleshy, chewing, resinous body. Stockfish, anchovies, olive oil,
      smooth, glossy wood, toast with melted cheese, smoky grappa, asparagus.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Oily, meaty, a wee bit
      briny. Lettuce, horse sorrel, parsley, walnuts, peanut butter, seafood.
