David
David,
Dry and earth main flavors that leads to lots of unique smells and flavors makes it a nice whiskey to sip
 
Lars
Lars,
Scent of wood and bark which gives the earthy character. Deep caramel flavor and sugary which becomes very easy to drink. Worth the price
 
Spencer
Spencer,
Lot of flavor. Going to buy this one.

Ira,
Nose of apricot; the woody undertones come out after resting 20 minutes in a Norlan glass. Initial taste of apricot, followed by cedar at the back of the throat. Color of honey in the glass, with long wavy legs. Definitely let this puppy rest in the glass for a while to get all the good stuff.
 
Krissy
Krissy,
Starts with a sharpness but turns woody with a slight sweet bite.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Earthiness overpowers the nice caramel scent
 
Todd
Todd,
Much more earthy and malty. The maltiness makes it heavier. Water took some sweetness but I preferred it with that drop of water.

Apple earth
 
Ronan

I loved this, despite it not being all that smoky. It had a smoothness with plenty of flavour notes, with a toffee or caramel aroma.
 
Collin
Collin,

Nice Malty and sweet scotch, with nice and interesting development.

Too peaty for me
 
John
John,
Not really for me. I like the malt and caramel and peach. However, it remains too rocky for me.
 
Robb
Robb,
Definitely malty throughout the long finish
 
Lawrence

Interesting. Malty caramel. Dry

To strong for my taste

Melissa,
Surprising! Mint flavor really comes through for us. Warm and soothing.
 
Maurizio
Maurizio,
Not my type of dram. Good afterall but too salty (mineral), earthy and dry for me. Yes, the PX is there, but just a little.

Rex
Rex,
Not too harsh. Smokey. Terrible after taste.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, rich, Single Malt Scotch Whisky with a rich birth; while a bold & dry life leads to a balanced death of medium length with notes of sherry.
 
Martin
Martin,
Nosing displays spice and a bit of grass. Caramel, some honey a bit of citrus. Light earthy tones to finish. Enjoyable.
 
Mathew
Mathew,
Hints of peat and grass. Big kick of spice and alcohol at the start. Underlying sweetness build to a cool finish. Smells medicinal. It’s really not my favorite.
 
Szymon
Szymon,
Really soft and light, fruity, with not too long but nice, sherry finish. Not any spiced or feeling alcohol. Recommend to chill with friends and enjoy evenings.
 
Michael
Michael,
Had never experienced a Campbeltown before but will definitely recommend from now on. Almost as good as an Islay.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Not what I was expecting. The tasting notes listed by Flaviar are off. I get peat and smoke. There is a sweetness present. Not bad.

One of my favorite scotches for sure.

Really enjoyed this one, smooth & tasty.

alexey,
Malt with a hint of peat on the nose. Earthy and grassy. Salt and peat on the pallet, developing hints of fudge. Aftertaste is woody with lingering smoke on the back. On subsequent sips, hints of caramel and Sherry. A few drops of water opens more caramel flavors and tones down the peat. Hints of fresh fruit start to appear. Overall smooth and pleasant with nice aftertaste. I think water does help to open this up more.
 
Matt
Matt,
Pretty tasty overall but could be a little smoother up front.
 
Michael
Michael,
Smells sweet, dry, and grainy. Occasional sweetness on taste, but mostly dominated by dryness and malt for flavor. Not a bad dram; worth holding on the tongue for a while.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Smooth taste. Neutral to the nose. Short but stiff finish. This one could grow on me.
 
Mark
Mark,
Taste like shoe leather. Ick.
 
Alex
Alex,
A little sweet, just enough spice. I really enjoy this but would spend a little more pick up another bottle of something better.
 
Deja
Deja,
Pretty tasty.
 
James
James,
Excellent whisky. Could taste the Carmel and the fudge but yet it wasn't sweet. Strong finish too but not overwhelming. A solid dram.
 
Blake
Blake,
Great stuff! Sweet and different from even Islays that I normally enjoy.

Gut zu trinken, längerer Nachbrand Scotch Whisky Experience, Edinburgh, 4/18

Toby,
This is a perfectly ok scotch. Nothing special, but nothing horrible about it. I will enjoy drinking it, but I will not crave it.
 
guest
guest,
Decent NAS. It can't be that young, smooth, sherry, malty, spices. It's not bad but it's too expensive comparing to a couple of good classic single malts with an AS and quality.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Glen Scotia was excellent, I little sweet for my tastes but it had a good flavor.
