    Second - comparative - tasting: the result is not in favor of this release. Nose and finish are very poor.

    Glencairn.
    Malt is indistinct. I didn't find salt and minerality in it ...
    Nose: bubble gum, sweet custard, cotton candy, vanilla, lollipops, pear, overripe melon ... This is not a malt, but just a children's matinee ... Well, just like I got to Luna Park in my childhood :) 22
    Taste: watery, wormwood bitterness, vanilla, sweet cinnamon roll ... 20
    Finish: weak, with a herbal bitterness. 19

    Suddenly creamy brackish malt, with nuances of citrus and leather goods in aroma, plentiful bitterness with aromatic herbs, duchess pear, apples, nuances of coffee on the palate and oak-grassy finish.
    I do not like these basic skapy, very controversial and some kind of "dirty." The aroma is quite good for itself, the rest - ah.

  7. OKN scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    The whisky is very unspectacular. However, at 40 € it is okay.

  8. schengel10 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    A gentle, pleasant and very neat Orkney malt! You can taste the first fill bourbon casks clearly!
    • Nose
      very fruity (nectarine, pineapple), fresh, mild, gentle spiciness;
    • Taste
      mild onset, then very fruity (grapefruit, melon), malt, cereals, vanilla, some oak (spice);
    • Finish
      fruity, medium-long; in the aftermath salt, oak;

    Enthusiasm Nose: 3/5 Palate: 2/5 Final: 2/5 Whisky n ° 1755
    • Nose
      Ripe fruit, melon, queen-claude. Rather generous. Makes me think of Hammerhead. Evanescent, light, too much, we feel that it risks "lack of weight".
    • Taste
      Peat tip. Honest body politeness finally for 40%. Rather stingy in aromas, the end of mouth is quite neutral.
    • Finish
      Final a little dull. Perfumes are like "trafficked", it's strange to feel and difficult to describe.

    Just go and buy one.

    It's really good.

    Bit pricey but good.

    On the nose, spices, a little vanilla, a pastry side, iodine and a return of mandarin fruits!
