    This one starts of a little modest, but give it some time to breathe and it gets really better. The nose is more complex than the taste, the character of being on a fisherman's boat disappears in the taste unfortunately.
    Not too bad though.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Immediately some saltiness, sea weed, a little smell of diesel. The label of this bottle might be chosen very well, as the nose gives you the experience of being on that vessel, ready to leave the pier. Later on, more fruitiness arrives, ripe apples, and some organic smell.
    • Taste
      80 80
      A little pickering, still a bit salty, pretty smooth actually, licorice now as well, and later on again some fruits, more like orange.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Very smooth and soft, licorice, drop. At first it looks like the finish is gone verry sudden, but give it a bit more time, and the finish gets better, longer, with even a little touch of smoke now.

    Blind tasting (and surprise) I like the nose! Honey, tangerines, some acid, citrus in general, also a not to be despised dose of oak. So it does not seem so young ...
    The palate is a lot more bitter therefore. Although bitter is the wrong expression, rather spicy. Which barrel ...? Difficult .. I would type in refill sherry? It's not an original bottling because it's different for that. Alcohol strength, I would tap about 43-46.
    So at the finish nothing burns! Nothing! I actually go from 15-20 years. Any Speysider in the Refill Hoggie (a lot of oak speaks rather for a small barrel).
    In the mouth remains so orange chocolate. There are such cookies with orange filling and orange drum ... Pims or something :)
    Maybe a Signatory Glenlivet 20 from the unchill collection or something about the shoot; but honestly - I do not know .. Priced he would be worth the 60-70 € value.

    good, tasty blend, fair price, despite blend / 40% neat taste and bite
    • Nose
      light, tart sour-leathery smoke, with nutty sweetness, some honey and cereals
    • Taste
      bittersweet-spicy - slightly bitter smoky and herbal notes, chocolate, pepper
    • Finish
      medium long, dark chocolate, pepper

    The color is amber.
    The nose meets with delicate peat with light salinity, then raisins and dried fruits pass with light notes, then a peppery character appears (experienced lovers can easily guess which malt whiskey is the heart of this blend), a little wood, grain, and also noticeable citrus notes. A very light veil reveals the spirituality of grain whiskeys, but it is almost invisible.
    The taste is soft and even, delicately peaty and slightly salty, with hints of toffee, dried fruit, a little wood, citrus and a slight bitterness of grain whiskey.
    The finish is quite long, delicately peaty, slightly spicy and salty, with hints of vanilla and dried fruits, as well as a little caramel. At the end, the bitterness of grain whiskeys is slightly visible.
    The whiskey is very smooth, soft and balanced, with a pleasant and delicate peaty character. The grain whiskey's alcoholic quality is almost negligible. This is a very interesting blended whiskey that will definitely appeal to lovers of peat whiskey, as well as whiskey from the Isle of Skye.

  10. Collegiate scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Revisiting this one for the first time in five years. On the nose sweet and candied, with a little alcohol burn. On the palette, quite sweet with a light wave of peat. Grain roughness there on the finish. Better than a lot of basic entry single malts, but you won’t forget that it’s a blend either.
