    Quality whisky for a fair price.
    On the nose red warm forest fruits with some crisp smokiness. On the mouth a bit single minded, with some peat. The finish is moderately long.

    great daily dram.

    The smell is very sour and musty. That is why it scores very low. In the beginning you smell the peat, which is quickly overpowered by sour odors.

    Thinking of the smell you taste a whole other whisky. He even surprised me. That sweet taste certainly did not smell. I also liked the oil-like taste to taste.

    The finish was not wrong, but he disappeared very quickly. Only the oily liquid remained around the tongue for a bit longer.

      Peat
      port wine
      Raisins
      Wood
      Kiwi
      Green (sour) apple

      A sour stale air. Not my favorite smell. The peated taste helps the score up.

      Very different from the smell.
    • Finish

      Sweet
      port wine
      Peat
      Red fruit

      An oil-like finish.

      A nice finish, which unfortunately disappears quickly.

    • Nose
      Smoke and peat, but also fruity, grapes, port influences perceptible. Plums too, and spicy.
    • Taste
      Peat, smoke, spicy, cinnamon. Firm and full, light pepper, honey, prunes and again some grapes.
    • Finish
      Strong, light pepper, reasonably long. Tobacco a little stronger, and some sweet, honey.
