  1. Calmar scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Light peat whisky, a simple, rather poor palette of derivatives, lack of density, but otherwise a good middle peasant, there is a development towards sweets and coniferous notes
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, soft smoky peat notes, boards, grassy shades, lemon peel,
    • Taste
      Soft, slightly slender, grain, oak, light smoky peat tones, a little pepper, a few bandages, sweet caramel notes.
    • Finish
      Spicy, rather refreshing, tart, slightly astringent oak, peat, cardboard, charred branches, sweet syrup shades, needles, cola.

    It's ok. Basic, and for those who like a more vegetal peat and fresh dram. 
    • Nose
      Vegetal peat, damp leaves, smoke, sea spray. Fresh and bright. 
    • Taste
      Oily. Vegetal peat, spice, brine, with mild honey undertone. More briny and oily and fresh than sweet. 
    • Finish
      Oily, fresh, and vegetal finish. The flavours fall away relatively quickly leaving a spiciness on the medium-long finish.

    EWC's peated grain order measures 55 ppm with around 35ppm surviving once bottled.

    N: Savoury creamy peat with a rasher of bacon.
    T: Allium & vegetal smokiness with liquorice wood and only a mere surgical hint.
    F: A short-medium length finish though without much action, save for another half rasher.
    C: Fair.Scores a D[+]
