  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    loch lomond and a peaty version
    • Nose
      fruity, quite fresh peat, woody and almonds, on the core
      a little spicy
    • Taste
      spices, peppery, that tumble!
      light peat appears, with some smoked meat!
      the fruits arrive then, rather subtle, not only on the citrus fruits, there is also a little fruit on the mandarin
      wood after, and a vanilla side that stands out
      back on the almond, its core and a sweet side, then a little liquorice too!
    • Finish
      short, on the same scents, a little woody, more smoky than peaty

    After enjoying the Inchmurrin 12 Island Collection I was looking for this one, but somehow it did not click the way I hoped it would. Not overly smoky, but the malt comes across pretty sweet and a bit too simplistic. Solid entry malt but not for me.

    Interestingly spicy on the nose, rather strange and extremely dry in taste and finish. No, I don't like that at all.

  6. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Notes blind tasting:

      Slightly smoky and maritime. Earthy - mineral. Dull leather note.
      With a little time in the glass, the smoke increases. Woody sweetness is added. On the one hand dry, but on the other hand also oily. Grapes, coconut, vanilla, dried herbs. Becomes more grainy and clearly fruity with even more air.
    • Taste
      Soft, slightly peppery appearance. Smoke and alcohol stand out a little. Herbs, cereals, sweet, light-fruity, aromatic pipe smoke.
      With the second sip, more grains and herbs. Less fruit.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Slightly smoky and peppery.

  9. L_Gillian scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    A young but interesting malt. It's fresh and meaty, distinct powdery texture. Falls flat on the finish which is a shame but all by all not bad!
    • Nose
      83 83
      Salty breakfast bacon with syrup. metallic brass-like tone which edges on something herbal. There's more slightly smoked well-done meat underneath.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Sweet and young. Oak spices and pepper, sweet stewed fruits later on, some smoked meat on the background.
    • Finish
      77 77
      Powdery and short. Too similar to the palate, it almost disappears for a moment! There's the stewed fruit again, along with some smoke.

    Not a peat or smoke enthusiast. This is a nice entry into this genre.
