94/100 Points, Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2017
The Medium Smoked Whisky is made from barley malt, dried over beech wood.
What we taste:
It has a light pleasant smoky bouquet, with malty roast, vanilla aromas and charcoal. Allow the whisky to breathe and the vanilla scent intensifies. On the palate gentle smoke builds up, which is accompanied by coffee-bean, plain chocolate accents and sweet fruits. Long finish of dried fruits and smoke. As the taste lengthens and deepens the smokier it becomes.

"Arbroath Smokies at first, but as the glass warms, the sugars get a little more crisp. Except the acrid house style is a unique signature, here with a light thread of marmalade;" "the citrus arrives a step ahead of the smoke , though this appears diluted down by a fabulously malty, ulmo honey sweetness – so delicious...;" Finish: "spices arrive with grace and interweave with the smoked vanilla rather charmingly;"
[...] there is no doubt that this distillery knows exactly how to make smoky whisky, because this is a very different, more subtle, style to their peated efforts." Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2017, p. 314; Categoriy: Superstar whisky
Whisky Advocate „The key smoke characteristic here comes from kilning the barley over beech wood. The resultant aromas conjure up sweet mash, charcoal sticks, slabs of fish from the smoker, and dilapidated casks warming in the sunshine by the shoreline. It's been matured for over 3 years in French Limousin oak, and the taste runs sweet with peach, nectarine, and melon, through Seville orange, to mixed peel and taffy candy. A finish of dried fruits, with lingering smoke in the tail."
