    Excellent smoky-peat whisky in a floral-lemonade frame, light, refreshing, festive, more respectable in development with tobacco and skin.
    • Nose
      Open, moist, smoky-peaty notes, lemon zest, smoked meats, greasy tones, sticky mineral shades - stone chips, ash, grindstone; lemonade, floral motifs in the background.
    • Taste
      Saturated, soft, oak, smoky-peaty notes framed by lemon peel, ash, lemonade sweet, candied ginger, lemon pepper, orange juice with mineral water, floral shades, monpensier candies, charred branches, smoked meats, leather goods, tobacco.
    • Finish
      Light, refreshing, oak, lemon peel, floral lemonade shades, ginger, ash, mint, leather goods.

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very nicr dram, with some sweet smoke notes, lots of caramel and full bodied without being very peppery.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Subtle peat, some gasoline, fake leather, then some fruitiness, peach. And honey, caramel, and sweet smoke, tobacco and ash.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sweet, caramel, oily, full and strong with only a little pepper. Later on more sweetness, honey and more caramel.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still a little tingling, sweet smoke, peach, caramel. Ash, tobacco, long finish.

  9. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A creamy  body.
    • Nose
      Slightly musty notes found.
    • Taste
      Dull start. But some burnt grass, cream and minuteness develops.
    • Finish
      Late peatiness.

  10. goran scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    N: peaty, slightly lemony
    B: honeyed, limited too sweet, peaty, lemony
    F: lemon, peat, pancake batter
    It's really easy to drink. It's just that the sweet side can become disgusting (BT2015)
