3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.48 points

  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    color:
    amber, dark
    nose:
    woody and peaty, pine, honey, a little camphor, spicy, intense nose
    mouth:
    earthy peat again, on the fern, cloves, vanilla comes all of a sudden, fruits cooked with a little raspberry, burnt coconut, rather toasted!
    macerated fruits, spices on the ginger, the caramel in return and the vanilla cooked in an English sauce.
    slightly meaty, vegetable peat.
    final:
    long despite just 9 years, deliciously long with a swirl of scents around wood, peat, zan, macerated fruit, chocolate.

  3. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Doesn't feel as young as it is. I would have guessed, 12-15 years old. very well integrated spirit. Very affordable and highly recommended.

    (Rating interval 84-88)
    • Nose
      Bitter almond, marzipan and dry wood spice, nutmeg,
      gentle peat, slightly eau de cologne and lemon juice. Water brings some floral
      notes and vanilla while slightly intensifying  the peat.
    • Taste
      It is warm and spicy with creamy barley, cinnamon,
      nutmeg and mineral peat smoke. Water brings some bitter-sour citrus.
    • Finish
      Dry peat smoke, wood spice and nuts. Water brings some bitter dark chocolate with sea salt.
