  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    an assembly of Scottish blends with a declination smoke!
    on the nose, simple, white fruits, malt, a little vanilla, spices, sugar!
    on the palate, light appearance of sweet smoke, sweetness, still this creamy and sweet sensation, otherwise, malt, spices rather full-bodied and back almond
    in finishing, that's where it's fishing, it's short and a bit astringent; and the alcoholic sensation is quite important.
    the smoke sensation in the mouth is the best memory.

    A very enjoyable dram indeed. Light, fruity, floral, slightly smoky (but in an unusual way) and with an undeniable wine-based-distillate-cask influence. I like what they’re doing! Buying good base whisky in Scotland and further maturing them in France in French casks. They can’t call it Scotch anymore, but who cares if it’s tasty!

    An interesting recipe with an interesting result. The restraint smoke is much to my liking, but the palate has some off-notes, while the finish is too short.
    • Nose
      Soft notes of sauerkraut, which is reminiscent of young ex-bourbon matured Ledaig, but less intense of course. A hint of vegetal peat, and very mellow wood smoke. Vanilla and porridge, as well as citrus (lemon) and stone (peach) fruits. Quite appealing.
    • Taste
      Soft smoke with the lightest touch of peat, but also a definitive fruitiness. Sweet grapes and some sugary breakfast cereal. Ends less pleasant. Burned plastic?
