    The last time in the port of Oban tried. Of course that tastes very different. But here, too, without the Scottish trappings I like him very well. This is a pithy highlander with a gentle soul.

      Some smoke, but discreet. Malt and some grapefruit. Smells good and makes you hungry for the first sip

      Sweet and mild on the tongue. Very nice! Then some oak and smoke. Citrus flavors and something diffuse maritime. Still surprisingly soft - there is nothing burning on the tongue. Very pleasant mouthfeel.

      Medium long, sweet and some citrus fruits. In addition the well fitting light smoke. That fits!

    You just have to try a simple old classic again sometimes.

      Sweet starter but becoming soon spicier. Little oak and smoke with some citrus.
    • Finish

      Medium sweet and citrus finish.

  7. AlecM scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Very sweet and fruity with background smoke. Didn`t like the balance at all.
