  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    Much less sherried than the new 10YO, but therefore also more natural in style. Despite the new label there's not a large difference from last year's release.
    • Nose
      A light dose of eggy sulphur upfront. Fatty papaya-like fruitiness. Peat and a little dough.
    • Taste
      Peach, pepper, peat, nutmeg and minerals.
    • Finish
      Peat, vanilla and peach.

      Sea notes, delicate peat, freshness. Smoked meat. Sweet fruits. Raisins. Muesli. Unsweetened popcorn. Rice flakes. A little lacquer notes. Kislinka lemon. Sweet pastries. Mineral notes. Corn. Toward the end of the dram, sulphurous motifs dominate. Complex, constantly changing. 22

    Color: amber
    Aroma: wine, chemical, crude rubber, hydrosulphuric (dominant), damp earth, dried pear, grapefruit peel
    Taste: sharp, sulfurous, smoky (ash), pepper, raw rubber, wet wood, nutmeg, dried fruits, peaches.
    Aftertaste: long, sulfuric, smoky
    Balance: hydrogen sulfide dominates, but a drop of water significantly improved the situation, all sorts of fruit notes were added.
