wisekycourse gave this whisky 80 points

Au nez,de la tourbe assez forte,un peu d'épices et des fruits genre cerise un peu macérée!

En bouche,la tourbe laisse la place à la fumée intense, les épices encore douce,les fruits toujours dans la même veine!

En finale,on a un retour de tourbe,de bois ,d'épices ,et les fruits indifférenciés pour moi tirent sur le macéré!

Que dire,très bonne découverte à très petit prix!!

Si ce n'était pas le problème des fruits en vrac,je partais sur un single!!

Achany gave this whisky 83 points

fine dram, there is a lot of Islay, lot of smoke, peat, salt, with more than 40 ABV this would really be great stuff. Price is sensational. we had this Whisky on a Whisky tour in Scotland!

peatbogger gave this whisky 83 points
Color
Amontillad
Nose

Very soft sweet peat, a little salty seashore, some blackcurrant and citrusy fruit. A bit simple but gentle and nice nose.

Taste

The peat is barely noticable, it's more of pure smoke. Initially feels a tad bit dry and bitter but rapidly turns sweet with black berries, coffee and mild spices.

Finish

The finish brings back some of the dryness along with a little peat, and the spice is growing and last surprisingly long.

Comments

A very smooth and dangerousely easy drinkable whisky.
