    What a pleasant surprise. 60 to 70 EUR is not cheap, but the whisky pleases, so he gets a spot in the cabinet.
    • Nose
      The nose is immediately sweet and sour on gooseberries, Seville oranges, toffee and apricot pastry – with a smoky side. Some roast beef and pineapple cubes. Toffee and toffee apples. And in all honesty: I think it’s great.
    • Taste
      The body is fine. The peat is quite big and offers an immediate smokiness. The fruit kicks in and evolves towards the candied variety. Seville oranges, apricots, peach and even some passion fruit. Clearly some sherry casks went into the mix here.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long. It starts honeysweet, but then the fruit has to clear the stage for a big smokiness that keeps lingering. Very good.

    Pretty good experience
    Light peat, sour notes, not intense smoke... The proof is also pretty good

  4. ARDBERG scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    absolutely underrated GS with great bourbon cask and gentle peat combination. with more peat it would have potential to turn into a Ledaig.

    Aroma: in the foreground fresh sea notes: iodine, beached seaweed, hot smoked fatty fish, spicy pickle, menthol, further extinct charcoal, caramel, smoked meat, lemon peel and lemon, apricots, roasted apples, a little lime.

    Taste: crackers made from rye bread, burnt meat, malt sweetness, orange liqueur, something fruity in the form of apricots and peaches, activated charcoal.

    Finish: longer than average, burnt crust of rye bread, an infusion of medicinal herbs, light red curds, smoked meat, oily.

    Rating: 86-87

    Bottom line: my first Glen Scotia and immediately not typical! In terms of ppm, this is not Heavily Peated, but more talisker 10 by furiousness, there is probably even more coastal character than the emphasis on peat and smoke, it is very similar to Islay and Skye, but there is still something individual. I think the level is not worse than Ardbeg Ten and Talisker 10, it’s a pity that this is a limited release ... But if you think there are enough peat releases on Ayla, and doing everything on Islay's tracing paper, it’s losing your personality ... this is just my opinion Perhaps the demand for peat whisky pushed them to the experiments ...

    Interesting notes to the peat, nice whisky, but no one, because of which you scratch your head. Easy Drinking.
    • Nose
      Peat, slightly sour, citrus, yoghurt, a few bright fruits, vanilla.
    • Taste
      Spicy, cloves, peat, some smoke, again yoghurt, citrus, vanilla.
    • Finish
      Peat smoke, some resin, yoghurt, citrus, not so long but strong.

  8. Torfding scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Barley drying in the sun, warm and dry, cooling, lightly burnt cake, slightly sweetish and young, some wood, fruit notes (soft pear and old orange), the taste of peat (smoke and earth) passes over time, but that Burnt remains
    • Taste
      Somehow burned something, smoke, citrus and ginger notes, oak, cereals and a dash of coffee
    • Finish
      medium; Smoke, honey and fruity notes, a hint of coffee, peppery rise from below again

      Medium long after smoke and oak.
