  1. Kumachan scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Superb base.

    A powerful but non-alcoholic nose, sweet sugar, a liquorice liquor and a light mineral aspect, rocky, the malt is there.

    The palate is creamy, greasy and enveloping.
    The smoke is very sweet and perfectly balanced, the 59% is tender, no bitterness, a sweet liquorice.

    The finish is very long, on white smoke and rock.

    More than to find a great barrel to grow this bazaar

  3. KyotoLefty did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Appearance: Clear.

    Nose: Campfire, light iodine, smoked bacon, malt biscuit.

    Palate: Vanilla, fruity, banana, pineapple, campfire smoke, light iodine, orange, crackers. Sweet fruit with smoke.

    Finish: Smoke, honey, vanilla.

    With Water: Soft, more vanilla, caramel.

    Overall: Very smoky, some iodine. Generally quite phenolic but not tons of medicinal notes. Some of the fruitiness of their unpeated make is still there, but very much covered up by the peat. This was quite excellent in a highball, although best to not get the yuzu slice in it. No numerical rating.
