  3. Egge scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Smoke that really cleans. Then a bit charred wood and very light, floral notes.
    • Taste
      Actually only smoke - as if you inhale a mouth full of campfires.
    • Finish
      Smoke in the first place, sooooo far behind the flowers?

  4. Snerik scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    A good “everyday dram”, if you have a fetish for peat that is. 
    • Nose
      Well… Peat anyone? Butter, white flowers, firewood. Nothing either overly exiting nor extraordinary, however, the nose is still clean and… Peaty. 
    • Taste
      Peat, peat, peat and some butter maybe? 
    • Finish
      It’s a medium long finish, loads of peat (again) with notes of lime zest and maybe some flowers in the back. It reminds me of a really, really peaty mezcal.

  8. Hemdl scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant, though apparently very young, Islay-Malt at a very good price. Not for friends of great flavors, but for social evenings all right.
    • Nose
      Strong and sweet smoke, with salty sea air behind. Unfavorably stronger in the nose than the alcohol content suggests, very fresh menthol note. Vanilla,
    • Taste
      Salt, peat smoke, a little vanilla. Pleasantly strong on the tongue, even if the variety of flavors is not far away.
    • Finish
      Short, smoky finish. There is a lack of maturity and a bit more power here.
