A great old-fashioned dram with a surprising amount of peat smoke. Very, smooth, gentle and perfectly balanced. They don’t make them like this anymore… – Rating: 92/100

The flavours of this malt are nicely balanced and pleasant, but it retains a good alcohol bite even with quite a bit of water. This creates an interesting combination of smoothness and edge. – Score: 83/100

This entry level malt is an unoffensive whisky for beginners: It has an intriguing nose, but both palate and the finish are much too subdued to match it. – Rating: 72/100

A very interesting older young whisky. A youthful edge combined with the complexity and smoothness of “Golden Promise” barley. – Score: 86/100
