  1. Shane_IL scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    This wasn’t a bad dram but it suffers from a lack of defining character. Some of the component malts here age very well and have some lovely distinct notes to them and here I found none of those.

    Tasted at a Malt Mongers Israel Evening
    • Nose
      Stewed fruits. Slight gunpowder. Chemical smoke. Plums.
    • Taste
      Sulphur. Ozone. Dry wood. Stewed plums. Honey.
    • Finish
      Medium, sulphur. Stewed fruit. Brown sugar. Maple syrup.

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Impressive blending, with plenty of Islay influence shining through, especially on the palate. 
    • Nose
      Plenty of citrus, lime and lemon yoghurt. A whiff of copper coins, but also spiced biscuits, very subtle peat smoke, tobacco and milk chocolate. Even somewhat floral at times. Balanced and complex. Gorgeous.
    • Taste
      An earthy peatiness and subtle wood smoke, accompanied by the citrus already displayed on the nose, and seaweed too. A pinch of pepper, also some cloves and brine.
    • Finish
      Brine, pepper and smoke. Quite long too.

  3. Issie did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Light, cold smoke - more medicinal, some sulfur (matches), herbs, some honey, pine needles, apple, a few strawberries
    • Taste
      Honey, sweet muesli, lime, green apple, slight tingling on the tongue and some ginger on the finish. From the smoke I notice nothing more

  10. Bewcastle did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    a nice blended malt whisky from my favorite regions. The price is a bit too high. Definitly better than the sherry edition from rock oyster.
    • Nose
      a bit fruit (lemon or grapefruit) and suitness, sea and salt
    • Taste
      Vanilla, light sweetness, then salty, light smoke
    • Finish
      long and intensiv, later the smoke again in the late finish
