  1. Karstman scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    It's not all bad but not a great dram either. The off putting aspects, the farmy notes are out of control here but they are the same notes that, more balanced and less in your face, make Ledaig so appealing to a lot of people.

      The nose is very light and spirity. It doesn't bite but it is a little sharp. Phenolic as wel. Medicinal, light leather with hints of cheese farm. Blindly I would have probably pegged this as a Ledaig.

      Ok, that is a strange sensation there is a bunch of peat in the taste that was not there in the nose. It is a light dram almost watery, briny water actually. There is some apple in there, a little rolling tobacco that gets in your mouth, bitter chocolate. All the while this is going on there is also something off putting going on...
    • Finish

      The lingering peat in the finish isn't unpleasant but there are some sour notes there and all in all it lacks depth. This is a dram that could be a lot more but it needs abv and age.

    Rather special because it is very peaty but not really smoky
