  1. stefan_PB scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    I must say I was very skeptical about this whiskey, as it is now a "supermarket whiskey" for a reasonable price. But he really convinced me for the price. Nice soft and fruity and above all pleasant smoke. I honestly can not think of a single malt that has a similar PLV.

    Simply one of the best for this price. Smooth and wonderfully smoky.

  8. Matt80 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Ash, peat smoke, a little one-dimensional. With time there is a touch of burnt treacle.

      With water - a little sweeter.
    • Taste
      Slightly weak mouth feel. Heavy smoke tinged with salt.

      With water - smoke just loses a little intensity.
    • Finish
      Medium/long, sea salt, pepper, strong peat smoke.

      With water - finish shorter.

    • Taste

    • Finish
      Medium finish
