  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Very special whisky. Smells and flavors are released that I do not often find in whiskys. But it is certainly not unpleasant. Very special mix of peat and sweetness. I would like to drink these more often, something different.
    • Nose
      peat, but also hay, and a kind of cow stable experience. Learn. Fruity, but also a tang of fish.
    • Taste
      Peat, and also kind of scented taste. Sweet, honey, caramel, nuts. Learn again.
    • Finish
      Now some peppery, turf, sweet. Wood influences.

    For the money this is good value and the peat is smooth and not overpowering.

  9. Taita scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Interesting and very specific taste
    • Nose
      Hay fire, floral house, stewed fruits, fresh white fruits
    • Taste
      Wet wood, extinguishing fire, almonds, herbs, spices, barney sugar, leather, smoked fish
    • Finish
      Oak, leather, herbs and pepper

  10. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    He is good, very well done, he can handle water (so not only filled with 50%, because he would be too pernicious), from teen / sprittig / metallic is nothing to remember, good NAS at a fair price (~ 40 €).
    • Nose
      dried culinary herbs, dry hay, charcoal grill, only slightly sweet, looks very cool
    • Taste
      full-bodied, lots of nutty sweetness, malt, the smoke is partly herbaceous-tart, partly greasy-sweet, there is also caramel, pepper ... and a slight bitterness somewhere between lime and licorice
    • Finish
      long, very warm, roasted sugar, pepper, a bit kräutrig
