    A wounderfull balanced peaty whisky. The sauterness finish complement the Ballechin.

  4. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nose: strong peat, wine notes, slightly maritime, almost smoked fish. Mouth: strong, sweet, tart, but still young notes, which could also be the wine finish.
    Finish: nice smoky sweet, some oak. Delicious. Conclusion: a smoker to my liking.
