  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Peat nose obviously first. Then, Fruit, cereal. It's fresh. Then more green. Over time, wood is felt and violet notes. On the palate, peat, fruit and spices (very active) form a very nice balance, accompanied by wood. Final slightly sweet and ashy. ripe fruit rétroolfaction. Enthusiasm 4/5

  8. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A few years of extra maturation would make this one stand out as a classic peaty Speysider. Still recommended though.
    • Nose
      New make, a bit oily and waxy, with the smoke of extremely dry peat, vanilla
    • Taste
      Full and rather sweet, mainly on vanilla and the peat smoke, but also some nice heathery notes.
    • Finish
      Ends again more like it started, like new make, oil, still some smoke and heather, only a little drying.

  9. ARMINUS scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    A solid Speysider with smoke. Totally different than the Benromach 10YO. Good, average single malt without weaknesses but without special strengths. If you like Laphroaig you will like it too.
    • Nose
      Phenolic smoke (reminiscent of Laphroaig), fresh bright fruits, vanilla, honey, milk chocolate, pebbles.
    • Taste
      The smoke is dominant, but not so phenolic, more campfires, nice fresh sweetness is getting drier, pineapple, the chocolate is much darker. Slight sharpness at the tip of the tongue. You can tell the youth of the whisky.
    • Finish
      Relatively long. Smoky and fresh. That was it unfortunately.
