Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: As fresh and invigorating as a walk on the seafront. Briney, cough sweets, liquorice, and fresh herbs (sage and rosemary).

    Palate: Richer than expected, with warming notes of black pepper, sea salt and ozone, as well as a hint of honeyed fruit. Good weight.

    Finish: The well-balanced peat acts as a seabreak to the subtle but welcome fruit.

    Everything you look for in an island malt whisky. Tired at a whisky tasting recently and came back for more. Delicious straight up or with a bit of salted caramel which is what I was recommended to try.

    An excellent discovery. I'm delighted to have found this whisky. Jam packed with maritime qualities as well as a real sweetness. Love love love it!

    This whisky is obviously not for everyone. I appreciate the quality and smoothness of it but goddamn this tastes like seawater with a touch of honey and peat and I think I would prefer a whisky that tasted like peat and honey with a touch of seawater. It's very salty too, like a salt whisky. For me it is bizarre. I thought the Timorous Beastie was the bomb though.

    Excellent peated malt blend with a strong warmth, full body and pleasant saltiness. Great combination of my favourite island flavours.

    One of the most unusual whiskeys I have ever tasted. It''s salty, yet has a fresh citrusy edge and a sweet smokeyness to it which balances the saltiness. Having purchased it last week it is now one of my favourite whiskey blends and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys whiskey.

    Fabulous full bodied, smoky and salty. You can taste sea air. Great blend. Beautiful flavour
