    On the nose: peat, smoke, earth, muddy grass. It's almost rancid. Dried fruits, a little salt. By force, one feels the marine freshness.
    The entry into the mouth is strangely soft after a nose as sharp, we find a very good balance between peat, salt, earth, honey, nuts, caramel, a little leather.
    The peat is strong in the final, it is peppered, very long in the mouth. We have a salt return one or two minutes after swallowing. The pepper is long to shudder on the lips.
    A very good whisky, at a modest price.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Wonderful whisky for its 10 years, with not so much variety of flavors and flavors creates the impression of deep, kaleidoscopic, multifaceted; excellent balance, excellent pitchnost, bright memorable character. (alas, the next version was weaker).
    • Nose
      Amazingly refreshing resin, sea, a little smoke and ash, in the background something sour-fruity - everything is mixed like in a kaleidoscope, then one other tone comes to the fore - perfectly.
    • Taste
      Explosion of spices, pepper, citrus notes, grapefruit, dried fruits, nuts. Slightly loses flavor.
    • Finish
      Warm, peppery against the background of sweet and sour fruit and burnt sugar, long. A worthy continuation of the aroma in strength and balance.

    • Nose
      Strong start. Pleasant smoke. Sea breeze. Fruity behind the smoke. Strawberries or grapes. But also oak.
    • Taste
      Strong, spicy impression. A lot of oak. Slightly sour-vinous grape note. No sweetie.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Smoke rises from the throat over the palate.

    Not an overly complex one but very tasty nonetheless. The only Isle of Skye single malt never disappoints.
    • Nose
      Heavy and bonfire smoky but also zingy, like lime zest. The proximity to the sea results in a brininess. It's also very woody on the nose and also a black pepper is present. Although the peat is obviously present, I find this one to be rather smoky than peaty.
    • Taste
      Very woody to the taste. Black pepper and American oak come to mind. Some sweetness, that was lacking in the nose, peeks through. Fruitiness like from raisins and cranberries. However, still smoky!
    • Finish
      A sharp but warm finish for this one. Woody and briny.

    Truly a classic malt. Distinct and recognizable in both nose and taste. Very enjoyable and a perennial favorite.
    • Nose
      The prototypical maritime nose. The elements in the nose really do combine to give a distinct sense of a tangy seashore. Moderate peat with a mineral, briny note. Raisins, pineapple, orange zest and lemongrass. A hint of ginger and anise.
    • Taste
      Starts off spicy sweet with apple, cucumber and black pepper. Rapidly turns more mineral and gingery with some peat and a hint of pineapple. Towards the finish increasingly spicy with notes of anise and sweet chili.
    • Finish
      The peat really manifests itself in the finish, where it is quite distinct. The finish is long, salty and warming, with anise, sea salt, sweet chili and a little pineapple.

    Delicious.
    • Nose
      Slightly smoky, salty. Sweet, citrus fruits. Malty. Enjoyable.
    • Taste
      Full, sparkling. Salty-smoked, greasy, sweet apples, lemon peel.
    • Finish
      Pretty long, slightly smoky, slightly salty.
