  1. Albaron scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    A great whisky, although not many flavors are there, the existing are very pleasant, all exist nicely side by side and make a lot of fun, because they complement each other wonderfully. In addition, a seemingly endless finish. The standards of Caol Ila can not keep up here.
    • Nose
      slightly oily, then the alcohol in the nose tingles with a hint of barbeque smoke, citrus flavors also mix under it, cucumber water, mentholisch
    • Taste
      strong onset, but not unpleasant, dry campfire smoke, malty, cane sugar, some honey and slightly bitter at the end
    • Finish
      The bitterness remains, plus the beautiful smoke, but also the honey notes, everything stays nice and long

  2. Koalafant scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Significantly more convincing than the standard bottlings
    • Nose
      Aromatic smoke ... A blend of phenol and campfire paired with fresh mint and subtle honey sweetness.
    • Taste
      Sweet-smoky with a good dose of ethereal freshness and a slight alcoholic pungency.
    • Finish
      medium long and slightly hot

  3. spatti did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Smoke, salt, very concentrated while nosing. Slight sweetness from alcohol, plasmic, syrupy. After breathing a while a slight herbal tone occurs
    • Taste
      Charcoal, dry but liquory, alcohol is exploding but not harsh. Salz comes in the second wave and leads directly towards finish. The body is short and concentrated
    • Finish
      Salt and smoke are dominant, a slight bitterness from mineral salt appeares. The finish is long and ends liquory sweet
