Wine Enthusiast 94 points - This maple syrup-toned spirit is a blend of Islay and Speyside malts, with no grain whisky added. The result is an effortless mix of lightly smoky and oaky caramel notes, and a smooth, velvety feel. A splash of branchwater amps up the peat quotient. - K.N. (Sep 2011)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Exciting bouquet of fruit, brine, smoke, and transparent, grainy aromas. The palate is beginning to show some rancio notes, with a delightful saltiness to balance out the orchard fruit. Finishes dry like a fine cigar. (May 2016)
