    [November, 2009]  I had this dram during a Prof. Schobert "Islay" tasting at Bonn.

    In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 80 points.  My notes state an immature profile with some unpleasant cheesy aromas.  The taste is quite full-bodied and one can imagine that this becomes a great whisky after more time of maturation (I wrote this end of 2009).

  7. Snerik scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Well, really nice whisky given the age. 
    • Nose
      Light smoke, stable, and a slight vegetable note. Some very sweet fruit in the far back. 
    • Taste
      About the same as the nose, but in a dryer way. 
    • Finish
      It’s nice, elegant, but there’s not a lot of “umfh” to it. Light peaty notes.
