  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Surprisingly, no specific peat smell or taste to observe, it is especially smoky, wood fire, tobacco. In combination with sweet tones, I can really appreciate this!
    • Nose
      Wood fire smoke mainly, roasted meat, tobacco, ash. That is promising! Then also sweet aromas, vanilla very strong now. And plums. Actually not the specific peat smell to find, but surprising.
    • Taste
      Some salmiak at the opening, stimulating and warming. Then again the wood fire smelled, creamy mouthfeel. Caramel too. Full taste. Now also some hints of chocolate.
    • Finish
      Again the dominating wood smoke, ash, light pepper. Long finish, tobacco (ashes).

  3. St. Pauli scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    Sorry, but this comes across as very artificial instead of artisanal. By all means: don't mask the youth of the dram by using overly active wood. Now it comes across as gentle and sweet on the one hand, with some supposed roughness of peat smoke. Only the peat is almost absent... The wood kills the character of the spirit.
    • Nose
      Seems to be wood-dominated, maybe to mask the youth of this whisky. There is a lot of wood smoke (think of the smoke in Lapsang Souchong tea), with vanilla (US oak sherry?), ash, soot, almonds, and bacon. It's quite one-dimensional.
    • Taste
      It's very sweet, and still wood dominated. I wonder myself if this is still real whisky. There is hardly any peat, lot's of ashy and woody smoke, and drying walnut skin. The development from the sweet attack to the drying end is very peculiar.
    • Finish
      Again, wood domination with nuttiness.
