- Roughness is what characterizes this whisky. It shows up in the mouth. Intense dram, memorable for thje roughness
Nothing special, some maltiness, lighter tones similar to some Japaneese whiskies.
Roughn ess, sharpness, peppery notes. Very rough whisky. The taste does not follow the nose, but, surprises with the different character.
Pepper, harsh, moderate
- declination smoke of a tomato!
fruits on lemon, sweet spices, vanilla and smoke
sweetness in the mouth and smoke on bacon and fish, leaving second on a peaty feeling.
the soft peat which gradually fades on a meaty sensation.
a maritime side
fruits on citrus fruits with mandarin (sweetness of citrus fruits), creamy return of citrus fruits !!
vanilla and light woody back
spices also a little peppery
sensations in the mouth that diminish
peat, woody, vanilla and citrus, a little creamy, it does not stay at the bottom of the glass.
- Nose: very young, reminds me of the Campbeltown Loch Blend. The nose is then fruity, vanilla, no sea breeze, but a little peat smoke. Sweetish on the palate, some oak, vanilla, some peat. Finish: slightly peaty, slightly dry, some oak. Well, frankly, stool does not bother me. There is not enough peat, in my opinion, to give the young whisky a lot of profile. The barrels were probably quite good, but unfortunately a total disappointment.
- Aroma: Fresh spiciness with hints of coconut followed by a slight smokiness as well as some aniseed and almonds.
Taste: Very pleasant and soft. Notes of honey and cloves meet with a hint of smoke.
Finish: Sweetish and rather mellow finish.
Color: light gold.
- Enjoyable Speysider with a twist. The relatively low peatiness of aprox. 15ppm adds a layer of complexity, that saves this dram from becoming a little too bland. Good price-performance-ration nonetheless.
Acidic, yellow apricots, and soft whiffs of coal fired timber. Somewhat mineral, wet cardboard, and white pepper.
Slow arrival, with caramelized oak and juicy citrus fruit (oranges and limes).
Medium. Faint caramel, more white pepper, and artificially sweetened mocha.
