  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Citrus spices pepper honey apple, not unforgettable

  2. Jeep51 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It must be allowed time for it to develop but it's worth it. The simplicity of youth is compensated by a well-marked OBE on the nose.
    • Nose
      A little pimply at first, alcohol being well felt. Rather new make: apple, green plum, lemon, kirsch and a little vegetable. Aeration makes him feel good and calm the beast. It is then fatter, almost larded. Also some notes of old toolboxes and nuts.
    • Taste
      Lively and rich. Some citrus fruits and a lot of spices (peppers in the head). There is also a slight distant smoke. Ginger comes next and takes everything away. Very powerful. Alcohol is very well integrated for such a young malt (if you take small sips)
    • Finish
      Long, hot, fine. Bitter oranges, sea water, oyster shell. Slight bitterness.

    • Nose
      It's fresh, apple, honey, malt, slightly smoked.
    • Taste
      It's fresh, apple, honey, malt, slightly smoked.
    • Finish
      short
