  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    In blind, it looks very much like Ledaig, but less monolithic I think. Fans of this kind of whisky will be there. Not bad, but not an extraordinary discovery (in my case anyway) either.
    • Nose
      Fresh straw, lemon, barn smoke (yes, it feels a little cow dung at times). Vanilla cereal. It smells of the young and it feels firm. After aeration, the farm peat goes into standby to give pride to vanilla malt.
    • Taste
      A lot of vanilla malt. Slight citric acidity. Pear syrup. A thin layer of cold ashes and a cloud of farmhouse smoke.
    • Finish
      Average. A minty, medicinal freshness invades the mouth. The vanilla lemon remains a moment.
