    A malt that is not his age, without much pretension but no less very good, it will delight peat lovers, and all for a very honest price!
    • Nose
      Fine and light peat, which is more farm than medicinal. A slight woody. A very simple nose, melted but not unpleasant, which however lacks precision in the aromas to detach.
    • Taste
      Sharp and precise attack, at first rather dry then progressively more farmy (the Ardmore combo / Laphroaig barrels?) And fat, lemony, with cooked fruits and freshly cut grass. The mouth is clearly a notch above the nose.
    • Finish
      Moderately long, vanilla peat remains, as well as a slight pleasant sensation of mint, the relatively high alcohol content helping to lengthen the whole.

    Surprising whisky! In the scent still very friendly, fruity and sweet, light peat. But in the taste it is suddenly very raw, strengthened by high Abv: Strong tobacco, spicy, salmiak. Have fun with it in any case.
    • Nose
      Leather, light peat, spicy, cinnamon, anise. Also fruity, citrus, apple. Sweet, vanilla. Full smell. Salty too.
    • Taste
      Firmly! A kind of slightly sour tobacco flavor, certainly not unpleasant by the way. Creamy, spicy. Salty, slightly ash / smoke. Lakrisal (salmiak pastilles). Still in the distance something fruity, citrus.
    • Finish
      Pretty long, light pepper, salty, tobacco, salmiak.

  7. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Peaty but not insane either. Sweet on the nose. The high title pushes the sensations high enough, but it remains creamy, not so peaty finally. Youth does not show.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

    Whisky n ° 1233
