6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.55 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Really great old-school malt, a subtle smoker who doesn't do anything wrong.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Aromatic wood fire smoke, salty lemons and cured ham (cooked ham). Later honey-sweetened fruit compote
    • Taste
      88 88
      At first a bit thin, gradually an oily sweetness that contains citrus fruit develops, overall it remains subtle
    • Finish
      85 85
      The aromas fade relatively quickly, the aroma of freshly drilled (i.e. slightly charred) hardwood lingers for a while.

  2. El Bastardo scored this whisky 40 points Member Senior

    Of all the smoky whiskys I've tried so far, the one that I, as a non-smoking lover, dislike the least.
    • Nose
      Heavy smoke, but not acrid. Fruit note.
    • Taste
      Fresh, slightly sparkling.
    • Finish
      Strongly tingling, bitter and spicy.

  3. woodstock scored this whisky 83 points Member Junior

    Smoky Speyside made from Borubon barrels, pleasant fruit, an alternative for Isly fans.
    • Nose
      83 83
      In the nose, the smoke covers the fresh green fruits, which only shimmer through gently.
    • Taste
      84 84
      This whisky was stored in bourbon barrels, which gives it fresh fruit notes, some wood and a lot of vanilla, I notice another (pleasant) medical note. The fruit notes integrate the smoke perfectly, the picture is round! Add to that the 46% alcohol, which is good for him. Rauch + Bourbon notes, well coordinated.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Smoke and the fresh fruit notes keep their balance in the finish and fade away slowly. Of course the smoke wins!
