  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    On the nose, oh oh oh! Peat! But not only. There are also cereals, a meat side, citrus fruits and then leather. In the mouth, OH OH OH! Peat that rises in power, but also wrapped in softness. Final: WOW WOW WOW, peat! She has gone up a notch yet! But accompanied by a sacred dose of salt, pepper and lemon. Fruity retroolfaction. With water, the nose is warmer and delivers a little flour, the palate restores the vanilla bourbon casks and the final, paradoxically is distinguished by a clear drought.
    Enthusiasm 4/5

  7. domani scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A smoky blended malt, with a pleasant campfire smoke. Created with barrels of Ardbeg, Coal Ila, Bowmore and Port Ellen - 18.10.2014
    • Nose
      Campfire smoke, sweet, butter biscuit
    • Taste
      Dominant smoke, but pleasant and not very obtrusive, smoked bacon, eucalyptus, pinewood
    • Finish
      Short

    I like the nose and the initial taste, there is a lot of sour citrus fruit, also a sea saltiness. The second part of the whisky is dominated by a lot of peat. 

    Sample of a christmas gift action on hetwhiskyforum.nl,
    Thanx Nino!

    Colour:

    White wine

    Smell:

    a fresh, prickling, balanced and semi-complex whisky with aroma’s of lemon zest, lemon juice, lemon oil, grass, hay, straw, heather, soft honey, icing sugar, subtle smoke, fresh burned peat, cedar wood, a hint of dried fruits, barley, cereals, fresh figs, caraway seeds, year, bread dough, prunes and smoked fish.

    Taste:

    a big, powerful, mouth coating, and well balanced whisky with aroma’s of bitter grapefruit zest, smoke, butter, vanilla, dry peat, white pepper, stem ginger, sweet lemon, icing sugar, light honey, a hint of new leather, pear drops, breakfast cereals, apple flavoured Turkish Delight, golden delicious apples, grass, and a soft medical tone.

    Finish:

    A long and sweet finish with aroma’s of the obvious peat smoke, apples, pears, grapefruit zest, pineapple, licorice root, anise, white wine and icing sugar.

    Conclusion:

    Much much fruitier and complex than I expected. This one also seems to have a more mature character and it delivers a much more balanced drinking experience. The finish is quite sweet which leaves me longing for another sip. This one is dangerously drinkable!

    Marks:

    8.6/10
