  1. Allandale did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    No complexity. Simpel. No depth.
    • Nose
      Layers of peat with background of vanilla. tangy rhubarb and hints of leather.
    • Taste
      Instant peat smoke, lightly spiced with creamy vanilla.
    • Finish
      Short aftertaste, some sweetness and spiciness.

  2. Punktar scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Smells really good, can also drink well. Unfortunately only a little bit of resonance and a little less complex than hoped. But for someone who wants to get close to smoke, this is recommended.

      Smells good! Beautiful medium smokiness, citrus fruits, maybe some wood and flower meadow. Very beautiful.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Immediately pleasant smoke, not particularly strong but distinct. Slightly alcoholic, with citrus fruits in the background.
    • Finish
      70 70
      Pretty short, a bit smoky. That disappoints something.

    light, young and not very complex, but good nose, especially smoke.

    fine whisky if you want to try a little smoke.

  6. Falang scored this whisky 62 points Member Senior

    A very light Wiskey that is missing body and complexity, but the pepper surprises somehow. The nose is ok.
    • Nose
      66 66
      Soft nose with some smoke aroma’s and a very faintly syrupy nose, elements of toffee and caramel.
    • Taste
      62 62
      Very light, almost water-like entry with hints of salt and turf. After a few sips it all changes, tinges of mint and a strong peppery feeling.
    • Finish
      58 58
      The finish is super short. This is a whisky with a light peatness and some barley elements. The watery entry comes back in the aftertaste together with some rubbery pinches. The empty mouth feels dry and still a bit peppery.

  9. schengel10 scored this whisky 64 points Connoisseur

    No off-flavors, but no draft either!
    young, simple, inexpensive!
    • Nose
      fresh citrus fruits, fine smoke, malt;
    • Taste
      a soft, mild approach, grainy, slightly watery, distinct smoke development, some vanilla, young, simple, uncomplicated, easy to drink;
    • Finish
      short, smooth finish with smoke aromas;

  10. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion: a simple, slightly prickly, banal, young whisky without specifying age. Smoke does not hide sharpness very well. The content of phenols, on sensations, is clearly less than that of the whisky producers from the island of Islay. This makes this sample not bright enough, diluted, but memorable, with a twist. Faceless it just can not be called!
    • Nose
      Aroma: simple, slightly smoky, citrus and slightly honey, with hints of iodine, spices and black bread.
    • Taste
      Salty and pepper nuances dominate in taste, citric acid and phenols are felt in the background.
    • Finish
      Finish: medium duration, slightly sharp, dry, fairly smoked, with echoes of black pepper, iodine, salt and rye bread.
