- 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
- probably underrated
phenolic peat smoke, very briny, intense vanilla, touch of citrus
peat smoke and intense vanilla-sweetness, american oak, pink chewing gum, citrus again
long, peaty, sweet and pleasant
- A few years of extra maturation would make this one stand out as a classic peaty Speysider. Still recommended though.
New make, a bit oily and waxy, with the smoke of extremely dry peat, vanilla
Full and rather sweet, mainly on vanilla and the peat smoke, but also some nice heathery notes.
Ends again more like it started, like new make, oil, still some smoke and heather, only a little drying.
- 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.
Phenolic smoke (reminiscent of Laphroaig), fresh bright fruits, vanilla, honey, milk chocolate, pebbles.
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.
Relatively long. Smoky and fresh. That was it unfortunately.
