    An ordinary one.
    • Nose
      Quite spicy, with a whiff of peat or smoke? Very conventional oaky nose.
    • Taste
      Sweet and mellow, a little bit watery, then becoming quite minty and bitter
    • Finish
      Short and dry finish, more spices and chocolaty flavours.

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Really very good!
    Enthusiasm 4/5 (on two sips during a tasting evening) Whisky n ° 1303
    • Nose
      Light and very melted. Hazelnut.
    • Taste
      Very homogeneous, completely consistent on nose / mouth / final

    Comment: Blind tasting !!! On the nose, it reminds me of a Campbeltown whisky. VERY VERY GOOD ! I buy!
    • Nose
      Nose: A very sweet vinous attack of the most beautiful effect. Then come the nuts, the red fruits picked right. The tannin side disappears little by little to give way to dark chocolate. The nose is really very engaging. There is also cashew, nature I mean. After a few minutes, a certain freshness arrives. A beautiful note of ripe cherry makes its appearance. The markers of the nose are disconcerting when we look at its color. Superb!
    • Taste
      Palate: With a nose like that I expect a lot, it lines well in the mouth, the integration of alcohol is just perfect. We can keep it for a long time. The chocolate comes back, the red fruits too. The freshness is she left but it is not at all penalizing. The dram gains heat with spices
    • Finish
      Final: on red fruits, beautiful length. The chocolate is still there but, if I can say but, it has turned into milk chocolate without being sweet. The spices have also been softened. It's really "BLong" good and long.
