General description

Netter, freundlicher und leicht torfiger Einsteigerwhisky. Wenn man jemanden an Rauch/Torf gewöhnen möchte ohne ihn mit den typischen Islays zu vergraulen.

Typische Speyside Fruchtnoten mit etwas Citrus, leichter Würze (Bratapfel) und Torf im Abgang.

General description

very interesting nose and taste - little bit smoke and strong sweetness. but the age is too young - you can clearly feel the taste of not too noble spirits, a little bit harsh to drink

General description

This is a nice whisky without question. It is good quality, of course, with well used rum casks to differentiate it from more "run of the mill" Glenfiddichs.

But I had hoped it would be a stand out for the range that provided something so wildly different from the usual and sadly it's not been able to achieve that. Inoffensive and perfectly drinkable though.

Nose

Super light nose here, some nice rummy sugar cane with a sort of simmering mango providing just the barest touch of smoke.

Palate

Super smooth and incredibly light. to be honest I was expecting (and hoping) for a lot more. There is that sweet tropical note but there is almost no discernable smoke that I can find and it's all quite watery.

Finish

Short to mid length with finally an amount of smoke the whole way, but certainly not enough to call it a smoky whisky as the rum influence is the absolute key player from start to finish.

General description

well balanced and tasty.

Nose

peat and sugar in a pleasing way. rum is obvious but not overwhelming.

Palate

vanilla, sugar, tobacco, a little spicy.

Finish

little ashy, and rum sweet, with a hint of... i want to say mint, almost toothpaste.

General description

süß-sauer mit einer ordentlichen Portion Rauch (zwischen Ardmore und Islay). Dahinter leichte Fruchtnoten.

Im Mund sehr süß und auch die Fruchtnoten werden präsenter. Dazu bildet sich eine schöne Vanillenote aus.

Im Abgang kommt erst ein Schwall heller Früchte, dann mit und mit eine leichte Eichennote, die sich in Schokolade äußert. Dahinter eine ganz leicht aschige Note.

Schöner Speyside Raucher, der etwas mehr Facetten in die Auswahl der rauchigen Schotten bringt. Der Rauch unterscheidet sich etwas vom klaren, sauberen Rauch der Highlander und dem maritimen, heftigen Rauch der Islay Vertreter. Vom Rum Fass hätte ich mir allerdings ausgeprägtere Fruchtnoten erwartet.

Blendet wunderbar mit dem Project 20 ;-)

Note: 2

Finish

7/10

General description

Soft and gentle both on nose and palate. Mix between rum and unpeated scotch single malt.

I was looking forward to tasting this for a while. I'ts a good dram, but not as good as I was hoping. Somewhat disappointed. But still a good dram.

General description

By far the best of the experimental series I have tasted. It's goal really is achieved. Nice balance in smokiness and fresh sweetness. When pouring some, expect a nice crisp whisky with decent bite to it, very oily as well

A bit to "sweet" for my taste, but absolutely drinkable. Smokey, with a long taste. Can drink it again, but would not buy it.

spicy, sweet, smoky and bitter. it's super balanced. I get cinnamon, peat, bitter citrus (maybe grapefruit), green fruit, and a chewy toffee finish. Not bad overall

General description

smells more like a bourbon, brown sugar and molasses, maybe some tropical fruit. taste started out sweet, dark fruits, developing a peaty smoke that fades into a sweet finish. works for me, but I like big flavors

I love the peat smoke, but other than that it is a typical Highland single malt to me. Not my preference.
