  1. Coldorak scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Cheap in price, not in taste!
    • Nose
      80 80
      Light and slightly medicinal. Citrus and pear. Touch of smoke. A bit floral.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Nice peat, not too strong. Vanilla and stone fruits quicky disappear to leave the place to ash and tar. There's an oiliness to it too.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Quite long, where the sweetness starts then disappears to leave smoky notes.

  2. schengel10 scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    An Islay Standard Malt - well done - not cheap!
    Unfortunately colored and cool filtered!
    • Nose
      phenolic, aromatic smoke, full sweetness, citrus fruits (lime, pear);
    • Taste
      a soft, full, sweet onset, dry smoke, citrus fruit, vanilla, spice (pepper); oily, velvety and tasty
    • Finish
      rather long, spicy finish, spicy notes;
