  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A nice aperitif style whisky from the high north, but rather simply despite some peaty hints. Does feel younger than its five years and is rather expensive in my neck of the woods – around 50 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is very light and immediately reminds me of breakfast cereals with pieces of dried pineapple in them. Quite some Granny Smith apple as well. Very light and happy, but not much in terms of complexity, while it is less young than the ones I tried before. White chocolate. There is a hint of peated malt, but all the way in the back. Very clean.
    • Taste
      The body is light, but luckily not watery. Fresh and lively, but it feels quite young. Pears, apples, some citrus and again some peat, with makes for a soft smokiness. But very soft, mind you. The malt clearly shines through, including barley sugar. Some liquorice and white pepper give it a spicy base, but all in all this is a very light malt.
    • Finish
      The finish, medium in length, offers a mild spiciness and more white fruit. Fairly sweet and mildly drying.

    This is an unusual one for sure but I like that and it definitely shows promise. This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger.
    • Nose
      Banana Cake, fresh bread dough, it's quite hoppy too. Orange moon dust, that is that stuff that crackles in your mouth. There is also a smell of wet slightly composting crass cuttings.
    • Taste
      The peat mixes well with the fruit notes. It tastes almost like a sparkling white wine in some parts. Also it has a strong taste of wash beer with a squeeze of orange. This tastes quite young but that is fine. 
    • Finish
      A medium finish with dried orange and sherbet dip.

    A bit too light and  clean, but exceptionally harmonious. Apart from the peat, it's very predictable.
    • Nose
      Zesty fresh fruit.

      Gentle on the nose, almost tropical breakfast juice.

      Pineapple, grapefruit with sugar, light undertone of clean barley.

      Notes of peat are fading in and out, sometimes clear, maritime salty, at others barely noticable.
    • Taste
      Bright and fruity.

      Light but not thin mouthfeel.A little dry pear skin, some liqorice.

      Some smoke, again; is it peaty or not?

      A feeling of a light barley foundation.
    • Finish
      Medium- in length, spices develop, pears are clinging on until death. Semi sweet.

    N: Pineapple, apple & pear malt
    T: Young ripe-ish pears with a ‘blanket’ maltiness
    F: Not too long but that's fine.
    C: This is a very good five year old.

    Scores a C
