The tin and bottle are loud and proud. They scream "look at me" with stylised teal coloured packaging and design.

I was a little unsure of this bottle but my misgivings were misplaced. This is delightful and its self confidence is not misplaced.

On the nose you get salty sea air, sweet honey and peaty vegetation.

By adding a tiny drop of water it opens up and releases cut hay and some light floral notes.

On the palate you can tell it is a youngish Whisky. There is a rawness which shows its 10 years young but not is a bad way. It has a brash confidence. It is creamy, buttery and oily with sea salt, honey, citrus and malt. The finish is sweet and malty.

Good value for money.

This is a very different, but very good malt. Your score seems reasonable, as the quality of the whisky is quite good. I consider this, along with "Rocks", as occasional drams when I want something tasty, but I'm looking for a change from the Ardbegs, etc. More of a fun malt that doesn't require too much analysis.

@taco I know what you mean. Have you considered blends to fill this slot? Something like Black Grouse or Chivas?

I haven't tried Chivas for eons, ever since I got hooked on single malts. I do have blends in my cabinet occasionally, such as Compass Box Great King Street Artists Blend currently. I also enjoy Buchanan's 18 YO Special Reserve and JW Swing.
