  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    84. Let stand 10 minutes.
    Nose: immediately there is a dryness from a botla, but it takes about 10 minutes to stand ... freshly cut grass, green apple, marshmallow on a fire.
    Taste: light, slightly salty
    Aftertaste: warm, medium duration.

  4. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Aromas starts with medicine and iodine notes, and slightly moves to sweet fruits, apples, floral, vanilla and sea salt notes.

    Light peat smoke, spices, oak cask and apples on taste.

    Long finish starts with spices, and goes with light peat, oak cask dryness, vanilla and apples notes.

    I like it! It had good combination on gently peat smoke with perfume, fruits and floral sweetness.

    Less peated and more refind than the AnCnoc Cutter. Time to buy another bottle of this.
    • Nose
      Very good and nice combination of smoke, honey sweetness and a little vanilla wrapped in an oily thickness. Same light ashy and medicinal touch as in the AnCnoc Cutter. Perhaps this is the typical AnCnoc nose ?
    • Taste
      A good mouthfilling body, not too heavy and sweet on the lips. A nice balance between sweetness and spices. Little lemon freshness. A bit of bitterness at the end but nothing disturbing at all.
    • Finish
      Good medium finish full of sweetness and a little smoke.

    In itself a good whisky, but he could have tolerated more alcohol.
    • Nose
      Smoke, burning straw, carnation, citrus, cherry, some caramel
    • Taste
      Smoke, burning straw, citrus, clove, caramel,
    • Finish
      Short to medium long, smoky
