  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    "Simple" and clearly structured. I am surprised how intense 11.1 ppm can be. The malt is very sweet, which is surprising, the peat is very clean. Nice floral and citrusy. There is nothing wrong with that. Nice whisky.
    • Nose
      sweet sugary, slightly floral, and also beautiful peaty, grassy, citrus.
    • Taste
      very sweet, citrus, slightly ashy peat smoke that dries out over time. The sweetness is good against it.
    • Finish
      Citrus, still very sweet, nice peat smoke, clean, minimally dry in the background.

  3. Pyromann scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    The aroma masks into sweetness, but slowly develops in taste and shows its other face with light smoke. Pleasantly drinkable matter. Rather, I won't buy the whole bottle.
    • Nose
      Scented sweetness, chocolate, oranges. Some candies. Bananas, vanilla. Not intense.
    • Taste
      From that sweetness, it turns into smoke. Rubber teddy bears. Lighted. Light smoke.
    • Finish
      Wood and smoke.

  4. 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.

  7. 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.
