    The plume of smoke evaporated very quickly:
    from chimney smoke to a subtle, almost elegant smoky note.

    The other day someone asked for a peated whisky that would not overwhelm the beginner; well, here is one.

    It looks spicy, has something of charred wood,
    but is also fruity, without me being able to determine the aroma in more detail.

    Yes, it is interesting, but it doesn’t come close to the 17 years of Solstice I love so much ...

    Of all the smoky whiskys I've tried so far, the one that I, as a non-smoking lover, dislike the least.
    • Nose
      Heavy smoke, but not acrid. Fruit note.
    • Taste
      Fresh, slightly sparkling.
    • Finish
      Strongly tingling, bitter and spicy.

    smoke 4, sharp 2, sweet 2, round 3, aftertaste 4.
    Fragrance: peated whisky. A little bit of ash, no campfire. Taste: a quiet peated highland whisky. No details, making it a bit too expensive.

    Everything here is geared towards the smoke, which is admittedly really excellent in its complexity, otherwise it unfortunately remains fairly straightforward.
    • Nose
      82 82
      clear smoke, reminiscent in its structure of a mild Laphroaig without maritime influences, campfire ash with a bite and old parchment, dusty, bark mulch, flaxseed, behind it are the barrels with bourbon past, some vanilla and caramel, golden delicious, sweetness a la cotton candy and Honey, after a long time spicy aromas such as cinnamon and ground cloves follow
    • Taste
      83 83
      strong with a little bit of sweetness, spice - only spicy then becoming finer, slightly bitter caramel, peaty malt, a good dose of smoke and wood ash, roasted and smoked aromas, agave syrup spreads, sage, vanilla, oily in character
    • Finish
      84 84
      pleasantly dry with cocoa powder, fine and yet very present smoke, wood ash and dust, a hint of agave, warming with a good length
