  1. Dottore scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    BLIND TASTING
    N: nice smoke, not overly penetrating but quite strong. But fits well into the sherry aroma flowing from the glass. Cherries and plums. Caramel. Medical sounds. Maritime sounds
    M: Quite strong, but drinkable without dilution. Alcohol is not perfect but well integrated. Beautiful greasy smoke. Sherry sweetness. Hardly bitterness, think a young unfortunate Islay smoker
    A: Medium-long, fiery-smoky tongue and cheeks are covered. Sweetness holds, even here hardly bitterness. Gets drier slowly.

    Conclusion: I like it! A young, strong (Islay?) Smoker. Tap on a young Laphroaig or Lagavulin. Nice! 88+ points
