Member Ratings and Notes
I like this whisky quite a lot. Nose of bright apple, with something floral like scented hand soap, and also a little tinge of actual soap. Palate -- yum! A burst of lighter fall fruits, with those apples from the nose, with a great spice mix (cinnamon most notably), some lemon. Finishes nicely with pleasing heat. Great/Excellent, B+/A- 

Very light color


N: Grassy, lemon rind, lemon bar.  Very lowland.


P: Confectioner's sugar, lemon drop.


F: Medium lemon lollipop.  


Unique malt that I have had with mussels and loved.  

N: First nose is bizarrely overripe smelling, like decaying fruit, and slightly butyric.   The less desirable aspects fade with time.
P: Thankfully the nose does not represent the palate, what comes through is punchy fruit with mineral notes.  Really enjoyable.
F: Lemon and wet stones (on the nose).
This is odd stuff, but I really like it.   

n: Caramel in a tin bucket


p: Matches and honeysuckle.  It's a bit thin.  Finish in faintly fresh cut firewood.  Very faint.


A ridulously easy to sip malt.


Buttered popcorn, lemon meringue, lime zest, metallic and mineralic.


Thin and dry. Brown pear and apple sauce.


Waxy finish


The nose is pure an malty with some Ivory soap. The palate starts tutti fruity and then malty.  The finish has some sweet powdered malted milk and floral notes.


Very nice.  B/B+
