  1. feeroff scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    21 + 22 + 22 + 21 = 86 ~ Already a lot of burnt wood in the aftertaste, and so very much the ringing molt

  2. BlueFire scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Smoky milk chocolate

  3. schengel10 scored this whisky 67 points Connoisseur

    Again, there is a lot of potential, but still too young ...!
    [Color] wheat straw;
    • Nose
      Sweetness, citrus aromas, green apples, salt, some smoke;
    • Taste
      fruity onset, herbs, spice (pepper), increasing smoke aromas, distinct metallic youth;
    • Finish
      short to medium-long citrusy finish;

  4. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Unfortunately, he leaves something behind in the finish, but otherwise a nice young Islay smoker.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Clear smoky note, slightly greasy. Green apple and some lemon. Fresh grass cut. No overbearing, but no boring nose. Over time, the smoke will increase in intensity. Now with eraser abrasion and warm tar, salt and seaweed. Maritime.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Dry onset with clear smoke and lemon. A woody note leaves a dry feeling on the tongue. On the one hand slightly sweetened mandarins, on the other hand tart herbs. Nutmeg, pepper. Some hay.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Even if the smoke lasts long, the finish is rather short, while dry and lemony.

    • Nose
      86 86
      Peat, camphor, earth, moss, vanilla, carpentry workshop and citruses.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Creamy. Peat, caramel, fruits, pepper and matured oak.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long, spicy, oaky.

  10. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Really surprisingly soft, sweet and creamy for a young peated whisky, very pleasant!
    • Nose
      Wood fire smoke, some peat, rubber. Also fruity notes, citrus. Vanilla-like sweetness. And hay.
    • Taste
      Initially: Salmiak, liquorice. Very light tingling first, then very soft and creamy mouthfeel. Some peat, but also sweet, caramel. The fruity notes from the smell do not come back in the taste.
    • Finish
      Soft, still very light pepper. Wood fire smoke again, now some citrus, and sweet, caramel. Mid-length.
