  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Dirty, a bit brackish. Salted toffee, soy sauce, pear, smoke, pistachio and sulphur. With water it shifts towards apple.
    • Taste
      Salted toffee, apple and pepper. With water some vanilla.
    • Finish
      Even more salty. A little pear and caramel.

  2. ARDBERG did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS CH Summer 2001 list:

    A spring day
    The name of this distillery means "green valley" in Gaelic, which describes the location nicely. The brand is considered "first class" for blends and is unusual as a single. This copy of a refilled barrel has a pale golden color. The nose has something very slightly medicinal (disinfectant soap), with pleasantly fresh traces of canning vinegar, boat paint and mint. Water brings out a touch reminiscent of the upholstery of historic cars-leather and decaying rubber-along with gypsum and a fragrant bracken scent. The taste is initially sweet, but with a dry finish. Thick on the tongue with a pleasant plume of smoke. It leaves a clean, dry feeling in the mouth. Fresh as a spring day.

    Tasted with Aby and JJ.

    Overall a bit agressive but great taste.
    • Nose
      Honey, citrus, leater, tea and orange. With water a bit briny - salt.
    • Taste
      Very full with wax, grassy and fruity - bitter fruits. 
    • Finish
      White pepper, malty, wax and honey.
