  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.

      The smell of pest hits you in the nose, then ripe pears and apples and fresh hay

      84 84
      Sweet, leather and smoked bacon, very very soft

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

  4. 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

    Starting to taste some whiskey. I like the smokey taste. Good for the price.

  7. Floor scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    Smokey citrus on the nose but a very fruity/honey taste. Could have fooled me by saying it's an Islay

  8. davidloosli scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fruity peat, green apple, earthy, fondant, herbal schnaps
    • Taste
      watery, melon, walnut bitterness, a hint of almond paste, spicyness from mustard, pink bubblegum, smoke
    • Finish
      Astringent, bubblegum sweetness, something artificial / chemical, dry smoke

    Bang for your buck! Never have i encountered this kind of quality in this price range. Yes it has smoke, citrus, fruits and blaa,blaa,blaaa... But this is just an extraordinary dram for the price! With this one don't go on and on with the details. Just by it and enjoy it!
