91 points The Tasting Panel: "Smoke nose; luscious spice and honey with notes of citrus, caramel and peat; mellow, creamy and smoky but always focused and elegant; lush, bready and showing vanilla nd subtle flavors. (Dec 2011)"
90 points and 'Best Buy,' Wine Enthusiast: "This Islay Scotch would be a home run for peat lovers. Every scent and sip entwine rich caramel and peat smoke, ending on a long, bold, smoky sweep and an echo of salty sea breeze. (12/31/15)"
