12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.67 points

  1. stefan_PB scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Absolute top whisky. In this price segment, the best I have ever drunk. Very good balance between smoke and fruitiness. Also has a proper sea character!

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    new reference that can be drunk better, because of my growing attraction to sherrys?
    good pick!
    • Nose
      malt, black fruits, woody
    • Taste
      vanilla, spices, butter, sherry that comes little by little, one side that stings version smoke, no I do not feel peat
    • Finish
      candied orange, cocoa, old wood and sweet spices that stay well in the glass

  3. Aique scored this whisky 90 points Newbie

    Exceptionally good whisky! Lovely full taste with the level of smokeyness I love. The first day the finish was quite bitter, but on day 2 that was completely gone! The interaction with the oxygen did the job probably.

  4. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    It is certainly not a bad whisky. It’s actually pleasant. But don’t expect to much. Imho there are better alternatives in this price range.
    • Nose
      Obviously peat. A weird kind of dry sherry. It all appears to me as quite young but quite strong and decent at the same time. This is a reconizable HP. There’s coffee, dark chocolade and something rather fresh.
    • Taste
      Peat. Quite convincing peat. Nuts. Almonds and hazelnut. Creamy body. You can tell the peat eased the young malty spirity down. This makes it all a bit out of balance.
    • Finish
      Dry peat and some vanilla. Hard to tell, the peat tends to cover it all a bit to much.

  5. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Never for this price.

  6. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    10 rates 90 - 94. There must be something very wrong with me.
    • Nose
      Light smoke and some chocolate but with a completely different sherry influence TMHO. Not as light, pleasant and sweet. There's also that nuttiness in here but it hides away deeper down in musty dungeon. (Dark Origin ?)
    • Taste
      I'm not that impressed by the taste either. There are decent NAS whiskies but this is not one of them. Harsh, spicy, unbalanced and too much bitterness. Sorry this is not my cup of tea and a completely personal opinion.
    • Finish
      Short and something to forget as quick as possible.

  7. Bj0rnp1 scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

  8. Sandman scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Orange, honey, raisins, apricot, chocolate, smoke, cinnamon, apple, black currant, cherry, grapefruit and garlic.
    • Taste
      Smoke, tobacco, raisins, wood sawdust, chocolate, almonds, orange, apricot, honey, black currant, grapefruit and hazelnut.
    • Finish
      Medium, orange, toffee, smoke, hazelnut, wood sawdust and forest fruits.
