    so, here are some words on WF: http://www.whiskyfun.com/2017/New-NAS-blended-malts.html

    Lovely stuff, and to say I usually don’t like Talisker all that much!

    88/100
    • Nose
      Very sweet peat, with notes of honey and vanilla. They wouldn’t have set a beehive on fire, would they? Some grassy notes too as well as menthol. Then we get a sudden truckload of figs and green apple. A very enjoyable, balanced nose here.
    • Taste
      Ultraclean smoke, just when it reaches the height of it’s intensity, the beeswax takes over. Asparagus and other vegetal notes join the fray. The lemons come in last.
    • Finish
      A citrusy smoke that just lingers. A wonderful end to this.

    Smells like a Caol Ila to me. A rather young one at that. The taste is fantastic! I'm guessing they blended in some older grain whisky to give it that smooth and complex taste.

  4. Ostap scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Pretty good flavor and taste, but not very balanced among themselves. Slightly sinks in the aftertaste.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Delicious, sweet-fruity, velvety, bright, with berry sourness, fudge, raisins, biscuits, candied fruits, light minerals, greens and flowers, apricots, skin, tangible typical roman flavors.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sour, slightly smoky, meat, smoked.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Grind, wood, candied fruits, grass.

    Tasted with a few drops of water.

    Nice nose on white fruits, butter and cream but it is a little closed even with a little water.
    After a while some faint creosote notes, mixing with a dirty peat,this is really good nose.
    Creamy, peaty mouthfeel, very substantial and the peat grows in your mouth but the fruit keeps it in check and then a slightly bitter grapefruit note creeps in, I reckon there is some Caol Ila in the mix here
    Ever so slightly hot but the balance is quality here, not a mass of flavours and a bit one dimensional but it really does work.
    Nice work CB

    Edit, after playing around for a few minutes there is a metallic aftertaste which knocks it down a few points on the finish, the only negative thing about it really but the palate more than makes up for this.

  10. Luigisim scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Peculiar dram, similar to a vermouth. If I have to guess what whiskies are in, I would say Arran and Talisker.
    • Nose
      Island  style, salt and smoke 
    • Taste
      Sweet tangerines, then green olives. Strange and intriguing combination
    • Finish
      Quite long but it loses some power after ten minutes
