  1. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very solid malt, but does not trigger a buying stimulus. From the port is little to feel. I was surprised, because of only 40%, the sharpness. Is the oak owed?
    • Nose
      Sweet. Malt. Heather. Baked apple with walnut filling and vanilla sugar. Maybe some strawberry. Overall, one notices from the port but little.
    • Taste
      The sweetness again. Acacia honey. Toffee. Far away strawberry jam. A little flowery. Then, surprisingly sharpness comes through.
    • Finish
      The sharpness sounds. Walnut. Kellogg's Frosties.

  5. domani scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A very solid single malt. But is not to be compared with other port wine ripening which I could try so far; Unfortunately I could not find the smoke advertised by the manufacturer. A higher alcohol content would do him good - 04.02.2017
    • Nose
      Gentle sweetness rises, malty, ripe banana, the port holds back as far as possible
    • Taste
      Sweet, candy, slightly dry, fruit gums, wine flavors, cold mint tea, honey
    • Finish
      medium

    As allways a little bit more alcohol (43% to 46%) would help make this whisky much better!
