  1. wncvirus scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: notes of butter, some seafood with fruit.
    Taste: floral elements and a slight tartness from the very first sip. Unfortunately, definitely perceptible alcohol. After adding a few drops of water, the taste of this whisky is flat.
    Rating: 86 | 100 Medium-long finish rather bitter for me. Unfortunately, this whisky has a much better aroma than taste, which is a pity. Because when the smell was the same as her taste, it was really good whisky.

    One of the smokiest HP I have encountered so far. But rather Speyside-smoky ála Benriach and not Islay-smoky.

    Unfortunately, for me hardly Brennerei-Charkter vo vo.
    Can tolerate water!

    A slightly harsher Kanidat. Anyone who does not like round-edged angular Malts, will find it here.
    • Nose
      Ashen, pineapple, some citrus, a hint of vanilla, moist hayloft, orange peel, eucalyptus / menthol, pine, salty sea air,
    • Taste
      The alcohol makes for a strong start. Strong ashen smoke, a slight bitterness.
      Salty, light fudge notes, hazelnut, a hint of peach, jasmine tea.
    • Finish
      Medium. Dark chocolate (80%), slightly bitter.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The most peaty HP I have tasted so far.
    • Nose
      Peat ash, hay, bread dough, fig, vanilla, peach, citrus, hazelnuts and sea salt.
    • Taste
      Peat, grass, caramel, blueberry, peach, vanilla, wine gum, hazelnut, milk chocolate and a slight earthiness.
    • Finish
      Chocolaty peat, caramel and blueberries.

    A year before the age of majority, this HP reveals a very good access to a considerable range of flavors and, above all, accentuation. No quirks, no frills and just fine.
    • Nose
      Very grainy and malty at the first start, paired with gentle peat smoke. Rich earth and heath ground, buttery aromas with a dash of lemonade. After a few minutes memories of a dry nut cake. The aromas are quite clear and hardly mix. It smells wonderfully Scottish nature, not necessarily maritime, but very earthy.
    • Taste
      Slightly less dry than in the nose, but sweeter. The almost 56% provide plenty of power on the palate, which bring the flavors to advantage. Again very earthy with hints of vanilla or caramel as well as some light fruit in the background. A successful mixture of predominant sweetness with always sweet and sour rashes.
      Water tolerates this HP without diluting immediately and brings sweet earth even more clearly to light.
    • Finish
      Very neat in length and you stay in Scottish countryside for a long time.
