    A fruity busy whisky. Press together in the sense of having multiple flavor notes. Not wrong. Give this whisky time to air and waltz for so long that it starts to get warm. Very soft and accessible for anyone who likes a little peat.

      Caramel and peat. That at first. After letting the whisky air for a while, you can smell pepper and orange peel.

      A striking mild taste ... in the beginning alone, but after a second or so you immediately taste the peat. Orange, caramel, pepper and sugar-sweet. While the alcohol pricks on your tongue and you search for more tasting notes, you quickly taste a coffee flavor. Also fruit is indispensable in this whisky, as well as wood from the barrel.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Fruit, coffee with sugar, peat and caramel. Well .. nice! It is unfortunate that 70% is quickly gone from the finish, but the other 30% is nice and stays longer.

    A good whisky. I'm more of a connoisseur of smoky whiskys so it's easy because I like smoke, but it's also hard because I've had my preferences for a long time. The Barrow will certainly not throw my previous favorites from the throne, but may like to be near the throne. I'll definitely try that more often.

      First smoke - pleasant smoke, quite strong and spicy. Leather? Smells good and invites you to taste.

      Good! Wood smoke and some ash. But completely in the frame. to something citrus fruit. I like it! This citrus fruit like Ardbeg, paired with subtle smoke - a very tasty whisky and certainly also suitable for smoke beginners. Do not get it wrong - it already has smoke!

      Pleasant and warming at the beginning, but unfortunately not very long.

  5. LittlePeat scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Color: light straw
    Nose: wood smoke, pine nuts, ornamental quince fruit (spicy & aromatic). The fruitiness is "bright" and just spicy.
    Palate: strong, spicy, clear wood smoke, light fruitiness, pine nuts.
    Finish: medium to long, smoky, fruity, slightly metallic.
    Comment: I can not say exactly what I think of that, but I like it. And for years, although my taste otherwise changes constantly. Two other smoky AnCnocks did not convince me.

    Peaty but not too heavy. Nice long finish.

  7. Bosi scored this whisky 78 points Specialist

    No whisky, where the world stops drinking, but not the worst from the peated range of AnCnoc.
    • Nose
      It rises to Ardmore-like mineral smoke in the nose. This is relatively strong for the low ppm number. Below are honey, some linseed oil, lemon juice and chalk.
    • Taste
      A touch of ash quickly gives way to a chocolaty sweetie and some pepper. The mineral elements remain.
    • Finish
      Unfortunately, the finish is relatively short and lets the youthfulness shine through.

  10. HunterRomario scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Yeah, this is solid whisky, sitting more than An Cnoc Rutter.
    • Nose
      Lighter style whipped whisky, fresh, grassy, ​​strawberry, with citrus influences, but we also find festive delight (chestnut, sugar wool). And, of course, peat, that's enough. (87 b)
    • Taste
      The smell I like, but the taste is even better. A good portion of peat, citrus, ash, a little bit of white wine (she and that color is like white wine), pepperiness and oiliness. There is also a honey sweetness, a bitter and salty, and it dries out. (89 b)
