  1. Frion83 scored this whisky 67 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: Peat, lemon pie with vanilla sprinkles, oak and herbs. Dried raspberries
    Taste: peaty, sweetish alcohol with light fruits and obvious soap
    Aftertaste: soapy peat with dry herbs
    soap ruined everything

    I already have the second of this Whísky on the shelf, why I'm not sure.
    He is so far away from the standard. Maybe that's exactly why.

      Very aromatic smoke. Light herbaceous notes, some vanilla in the background, maybe honey ?, is there any oak? In the foreground, however, the (green) apple remains.
      Actually a great nose ..... or not!? ... but still ... simply fine.

      Loose mouthfeel, no alcohol noticeable, where from? Gently sweet with salivation, the great smoky flavor lays down everything. Fine.

      The pleasantly soft disappears quite quickly and what remains is the light smoke with herbaceous aromatic impressions. Simply pleasant, period.
