  1. vmp scored this whisky 86 points Newbie

    Excellent value for money. Peat smoke not as prominent as in an Islay. But makes it's presence felt combined with fruity flavours.

    Excellent! Maybe the oak was just a tad too active on the palate, but overall a nice range of flavours and a good balance. Recommended.
    • Nose
      Touches of peat, along with a whisper menthol and angelica root, followed by peaches, and tinned pineapple. Finally a whiff of smoked paprika powder, cinnamon and cured meat.
    • Taste
      Beautiful oiliness, spicy (ginger, cloves, nutmeg) and fairly peaty. But there's a sweet tropical fruitiness here again. Passion fruit comes to mind, as does mango. A fair amount of toasted bread too, as well as a pronounced oakiness.
    • Finish
      Sweet peat, a tad dry. Medium in length.

    Tasted blind - it made it's mark and stood it's ground between a Clynelish 14 and a Kilchoman Machir Bay.

    Deserves to be on the list of Scotch lovers;-)

    Very nice whisky, which I presumably would have put blind immediately to Scotland.
    • Nose
      Surprisingly Scottish, my first Indian, that's why I expected something different somehow. Strong smoke and sweetness are the strongest flavors at the beginning. The smoke is more medicinal than campfire smoke. Then spice and herbs develop properly. After about 20 minutes, a few red fruits are added. The nose is ever interesting and strong.
    • Taste
      The first 2 seconds he was very silky and oily, but then comes with a lot of noise, the smoke and spice to light. The right machine forwards: pepper, heavy smoke (which comes here even stronger than in the nose), some tobacco and leather notes, the fruits come again at the end. The alcohol content is just right for me.
    • Finish
      A little orange, caramel, dark honey and growing oak. For a long time I would say. The smoke does not fade and sets a nice counterpoint to the more dominant oak. Now also shows dark chocolate.

    A stunning dram, by this combination of peat smoke and intense exotic fruit, very pleasant surprise even if the peat is well below what the nose could glimpse.
    • Nose
      very pleasant peat mingled with exotic fruits, marked on pineapple, with vanilla and fresh lemon.Uniform smoke evaporation.
    • Taste
      intense fruity flavors, the smoke fades unfortunately in relation!
      Back spicy, honeyed, vanilla, a little wood and dry smoke on the return.
    • Finish
      long enough, but also disparate and disintegrating.
      On the same aromas with a fruity and floral side.
