Nose
Salt. Fresh limes. Citrus peel.
Palate
Lightly nutty. Creamy, oily. Clean, grassy, peat.
Finish
Fragrant.
Comment
Surprising peatiness, but without smokiness.

Jim Murray

55
Nose
A disappointingly dirty, off aroma more akin to a curry than a single malt.
Palate
Much better than the nose suggests but beyond a sweet maltiness it doesn't travel far before something thin and not quite right makes an entry.
Finish
Malty with vanilla but very little depth.
Comment
One to forget.
