    Nose: Much peat, salt, then gets a note like smoked haggis. Very earthy peat. In the background a nice sweetness. Mouth: quite dry, peaty, strong, stronger, than I expected. Add a little oak, menthol and pepper. Finish: Departure is quite strong, peaty, a few tart notes, menthol and tends to be dry.

  9. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A promising nose, unfortunately in the mouth the gluttony disappears little by little. The whole remains rather correct.
    • Nose
      Light, not very powerful. First fragrances finely peated with some saline / iodized notes Then come the fruity / metallic notes with a hint of bitterness.
    • Taste
      Alcohol well integrated. The smoke / peat is almost already far to make way for dried fruit, wood. Dryness in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Medium finish, woody on dried fruits. The peat is a distant memory.
