  1. Dris scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This one definitely feels the youngest of the bunch. Untamed chalky phenolic smoke, with barley sugar and vanilla on the finish.

  3. DGV scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Color: Light straw

    Aroma: Fresh, open. Chopped grapefruit, lime and orange peels. The second nose is a damp cloth, smoke.
    Taste: Spiky, impudent, youthful feeling. Next are the green apples and the bitterness of the bark of young shoots.

    Finish: Medium duration. Citrus bitterness accompanied by smoke.
    Conclusion: He lacks self-control of course
