  1. Ostap scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    July 2014:
    Quality work, consistently, without distortions.
    • Nose
      Peat, algae, iodine, smoke, smoked fish and bacon, burnt wood, honey on beeswax, raisins and prunes, grapefruit, cranberry sourdough, fresh bread sprinkled with honey, medicine, vanilla-based citro, non-alcoholic.
    • Taste
      Bread, salted smoked fish, smoked meat in a sweet sauce, mineral, excellent dosage of salt and sugar - they seem to flow into each other, then juicy fruit, then meat with roasted vegetables, notes of pumpkin.
    • Finish
      Medium, dried, baked vegetables, wooden beehive frames, pumpkin and meat.

    Smells very good, mild, smoky. Tastes the same way. Is a pretty nice introduction to smoky whiskys.

    light, pleasant whisky. I would say a good whisky, but given the low price: very good!
    no miss notes findable, easy to drink!
    • Nose
      smoky, caramel, fruity / pear
    • Taste
      sweet, soft, smoke, citrus peel, cocoa, licorice; the wood notes are only slightly pronounced; balanced!
    • Finish
      short but very pleasant, smoky, sweet, slightly salty
