Whiskey Advocate 92 points - Get ready for a kaleidoscope of flavors. Little Bay spins from malt and salt to dark chocolate, citrus fruits, and berries, before whirling into baking spices, oak and a long finish. This is an ideal whisky to linger over. (Aug 2017)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Classic aromas of brioche, rain dappled slate, and cedar erupt from the glass. But the first sip answers any and all questions: This is a timeless expression of scotch, with subtle smokiness, toasted wheat, and honeysuckle, built over a medium-body mouthfeel that hugs the palate.
