  1. Shane_IL scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This is a no nonsense Islay, amazingly well made and at 5 years old really reeks of peaty goodness. I'm really excited to see where this distillery goes.
    • Nose
      Dirty earthy peat, rubber, wet tar, lychees, craft glue, fresh summer rain. Some soapy and sugary fruit notes come forward with some water.
    • Taste
      Sticky tar, dirt and peat, wet gravel, a bit of nail polish but in a nice way. Water brings a bit more of the young cereal notes through. Very nice.
    • Finish
      Warm meaty smoke, herbal peat, some cereals, very very long.

  2. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Sweet nose, vanilla, caramel, ashes, yellow fruits, time and a dilution to express themselves fully. Mouth very oily, covering, on lemon and gentian. Alcohol is very well integrated. Long and warm final. Good mouth but the nose is below.

  3. tomy63 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    straw color, austere nose on cold ashes, leather, rubber, with more water on licorice. Mouth more greedy, very big scale, powerful, well integrated alcohol, vanilla, peat, lemon, classic. Very nice length, iodized and ashy finish.

  4. Ivynor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Not an easy product, it's young and powerful. maybe a sherry finish would have softened all that ... To retest and to renot with more ventilation
    • Nose
      Fine peat, medicinal plants and a little lemon. With water, the ashes are more marked and the whole seems "heavier".
    • Taste
      Well integrated alcohol, we do not feel 61.7%. The texture is slightly oily, on plants, peat, a little citrus. The texture is creamier with water.
    • Finish
      Earth, ashes, plants. It is quite austere.
