    Very good whisky. The anise would have personally but probably not noticed, if I had not explicitly searched for him ...

      Smoke, lavender, orange, some cotton candy, seaweed, sea air.

      Smoke, some sugar, oak, walnut and if you are looking for anise.

  4. Toffie76 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    a development a little too linear. A very nice product, but few surprises in the end.
    • Nose
      classic, smoke, light peat with a good dose of citrus and sea air. Salt, smoked fish. Licorice, laurel, genevrier.
    • Taste
      the texture is quite fluid. A lot of aromatic spices (thyme, marjoleine, cumin ...). We find the marine side of the nose. Everything is articulated clearly and cleanly. We would have liked a little more depth, the whisky is younger than the advertised age. There is a certain austerity with a touch of mineral / ashy? supported.
    • Finish
      smoke, chiseled bitterness. Clean. Average length

  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Light straw smoke, and lemon apple. Palate: Vanilla, light smoke, and some spices .. Finale: Sweet spices and smoked pear. Verdict: Balanced. The peat is light and pleasant. Very good.
