  7. Ostfriese scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Peat smoke, sweetness and raisins are the first thing in my nose, followed by dark red grapes and nut oil before medical notes of iodine and mouthwash gain the upper hand. A maritime touch of seaweed and sea air wafts in the background.
    • Taste
      It spreads creamy, sweet in the mouth before strong tobacco smoke and peppery notes suddenly come to the fore. Vanilla, caramel and light chocolate notes defy the smoke
    • Finish
      Drying. Cooling smoke and a light pepperiness form the foreground, while citrus notes and sultanas are noticeable in the background.

  8. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    There are a couple of young barrels here, no question. But he is well-balanced despite his youth, provides the tongue with a decent portion of smoke, has a slightly fruity component, without this looks set. And then this price - you really can not complain.
    • Nose
      He does not hold back, no signs of shyness in his nose. Nice kräfiger, spicy smoke. First in the direction of smoked (Black Forest ham), then becoming maritime. Behind it a sweet note as from baked apples with cinnamon and sugar.
    • Taste
      As expected, strong start with heavy dry smoke. Although 58%, it is not too strong or unbalanced to keep it from rolling over the tongue. Pepper and hot paprika powder give it flavor, red ripe apples provide a fruity balance. Over time, slightly bitter herbs, and dark chocolate. It stays dry all the time, the smoke fills the mouth all the time.
    • Finish
      Medium long, still dry, tearing and still with spicy spicy smokes.
