90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Coconut and vanilla aromas mix with a hint of fresh pear. The palate shows tire rubber and peat smoke, with a hint of black licorice and a flare of clove heat. Adding water brings more licorice and a flurry of black pepper to the fiery finish. (2021)"
8-1/4 points Jim Murray (Whisky Magazine): "Nose: Attractively floral with significant oak input. Polished floorboards and a scattering of crushed hazelnut: firm to the point of being rock hard. Palate: Hard and bullet-like from the off with an almost Irish pot still firmness. Finish: Medium length and remains pretty sharp and crisp. Comment: Pretty impressive and singular in style. First-rate bittersweet balance."
