    Typically my kind of whisky, I love it! Glass: Glencairn Whisky n ° 2
    • Nose
      The first scents are fresh, iodized and vegetal. Behind the smoke, wet grass, fresh fruit (green apple, plum). The peat heat is present in the background and intensifies gradually.
    • Taste
      The attack is very powerful but remains balanced. Peat fire is accompanied by peppery, salty and lemony notes; this reveals a medicinal side, contained by some fresh fruits slightly fruity.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, smoke, on fresh fruits and vegetal notes that echo the nose.

    Very pretty !
    Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1452
    • Nose
      Intense, salty and fresh! Fresh fruits. Pastry accents integrate with the malt notes to evoke the biscuit.
    • Taste
      Intense and saline, again. Some lemon notes. Thick, oily, then juicy texture afterwards.
    • Finish
      Nice finish with coffee notes.

  4. aphex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A tasty and deliciously lemony young peated Bunna. Very good selection.
    • Nose
      Young and a bit simple at first. Peat smoke and coastal notes. With time, more mineral and lemony with a bit of iodine.
    • Taste
      Peat smoke, lemon juice (zesty and sour), sweet. With water, more smoke, brine.
    • Finish
      Long, salty, lemony.
