    Well, the label says 'peated', but those peat influences you have to look for with a magnifying glass. What remains is a soft, easy-drinking and accessible sweet and fruity whisky. Not very complex, but no penalty to sip away.
    • Nose
      In contrast to the name, I initially do not smell peat at all: Fruity, light leather, citrus, fresh. Then very slightly something that tends to peat, and rubber. But it also looks perfumed, lavender, and soap / detergent.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweet, toffee. Very light pepper, and tropical fruit.
    • Finish
      Light pepper, reasonably short.Toffee, and now a touch of licorice, so still something of peat-influences ...

    The smoke is in no way dominant, it also brings out the sometimes very subtle other flavors well. He can not hide his youth completely. But makes you want more.
    • Nose
      initially classic sweetness with lots of vanilla, smoked barley malt, more light to medium-strong and sweet smoke with notes of smoked, short flash of caramel and Baileys, salty elements, then white oak, banana, honeydew melon and some Galiamelone, green apple, very fine spice the delicate aromas oscillate between fruity and malty character, the basic tenor is characterized by a slight smokiness and sweetness
    • Taste
      mild, medium-bodied organic smoke, dry citrus notes of kumquats and grapefruit, sweet malt, slightly spicy sweetness, with oak and cinnamon, ash, vanilla, bitterness of liquorice, light apple fruit, roses
    • Finish
      the organic smoke remains, ashes, dry, slightly chocolaty bitterness, anise, again apple and salty implications, cinnamon pear compote, distant cedar spice, again grapefruit, stimulating the taste and quite long-lasting

  5. Bosi scored this whisky 81 points Specialist

    A really good whisky, which is very different from its "brothers" from Islay. A very good example of the increasingly strained concept of the terroir.
    • Nose
      The whisky offers interesting aromas of apple, white grape and fig. The peat is discreetly recognizable in the background.
    • Taste
      In contrast to the aroma, the smoke is in the foreground. Then the fresh aromas of apple and pear emerge, making the whisky surprisingly light.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and the fruity aromas dominate.

  6. Matt80 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very enjoyable and I will certainly look to buy a bottle of this
    • Nose
      Vanilla, light,peaty, medicinal(iodine?), quite vegetal, sugary in a candied way, a near metallic note.

      With water-much more metallic.
    • Taste
      Light smoke that gradually intensifies, light sweetness, spicy.

      With water-smoke tempered, a hint of metal but not in a negative way.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, spicy, light sweetness. With water the finish isn't quite as long
