  3. Eilean a' Cheo scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Tasted blind

    N: fruits, even hints of tropical ones, sweet ashes, caramel fudge, burnt wood, green spices

    M: so hot and sweet as you first sip but gets softer , the peat smoke gets more delicate, more complex, green tea, smoked milky oolong tea

    F: very long, with different aspects of peat, first it is sharp and citric, the gets woody and more sophisticated


  4. Achany scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    nosing this dram I was missing the peat. there was a lot of sweetness, hints of herbs, some blossom - really nice. but with the first sip the peat kicks in quite nicely. combined with some vanilla, sweet, malt, some fine amount of pepper, fine dram - young and feisty. well done!

  5. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not very complex and you notice in places but the youth, but all in all, not a bad whisky, which I would like to pour.
    • Nose
      What a caramel bomb, Werther's pure, the smoke is subtly present with a spicy touch, fir resin, slightly floral, but the caramel kills everything, some salt, with time, the smoke is more intense
    • Taste
      In the mouth, it starts slightly spicy and with a good dose of smoke, sweet, he screams quasi ex-bourbon barrel, caramel, vanilla and also some light fruit in the background, which I can not more accurately assign
    • Finish
      the aftertaste is drier with smoke that clings to the palate, and the caramel is still there
