  1. Cicero did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    different
    Interesting
    I did not have such a pronounced forest / fir / spruce note yet
    • Nose
      Forest, a lot of forest
      Fir, spruce, resin
      some honey and marzipan croissants (with almonds around)
      half-baked bread dough
      the forest remains dominant
    • Taste
      decent start, but not too strong
      sweet pastries
      and then bread again
      Brottrunk
      the second sip makes the spruce stronger
    • Finish
      sweet spruce

  2. alex_p scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I don't remember which cask it was, but I liked this whisky. Natural fresh bread, dried pear, wild berries.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    This is not whiskey yet, but what was conjured in the 2 years is very remarkable. The Young Malt is of course still quite simple and not very complex, but it offers some great flavors and definitely makes drinking fun.
    • Nose
      Nice nose with almond biscuits, honey, caramel, pine needles and a light fruitiness. The youth can not be completely masked.
    • Taste
      Strong onset, then honey, pastries, a little oak and a slightly tingling alcohol.
    • Finish
      Departure, slightly dry, some oak, a little pine needles. Relatively short.
