    Good young smoker who is really top of the PLV. Intense, slightly medicinal peat.

    • Nose
      Light medicinal, smoke and peat. A sweet fruity smell but also a bit flat for the rest.
    • Taste
      Pepper and a lot of sweet barley keeps coming back. Not a big body and even watery.
    • Finish
      Bitter at the end of a short finish.

  6. HunterRomario scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I did not have a bottle, but I tasted about 5 times during the festival blind tasting and during it. Solid whisky.
    • Nose
      A very distinctive scent, a lot of sweet, honey, fruit nectar, vanilla, grass, straw, sugar wool, then heavier fruity with smoke and dexterity. It smells sweet and there is also sea salinity. (88 b)
    • Taste
      Somewhat oily on the tongue, first sweeter, but increasingly peat and smoke. Light grape bitterness in the flavor. Besides, the used and ash-like reverberation. (86 b)

  7. Dre73 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Peat, smoky, ashtray effect. Pretty one-dimensional canned whisky.
