  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    it has such a long, beautiful finish and does not trip anywhere, not in the nose, not in the mouth,
    just really good

    92 out of 100 points
    yes, I'm in Heaven
    • Nose
      salty, old walls
      Old sherry sticks to the floor
      smoky sea air blows through the cracks - it smells of iodine
      Vanilla, lemon
      Flowers wither

      longer service life
      and the smell has changed great

      old walnut, dried fruit
      almond
      the walnut shells smell like old wooden planks
      Dust / slightly sulfur
    • Taste
      cool between the lips
      hot and fiery on the tongue
      in short the old walls on the palate
      then it becomes fruity, sweet and smoky
      oily
      Almond, lemon, vanilla
      Dark chocolate with coffee and orange
    • Finish
      the sea says goodbye, with sweet wood
      the walls also say goodbye, a little salty
      Dried fruits coffee and orange

  2. Gloin scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    The smell convinces with high complexity and changing aromas, which are always underlined by very pleasant smoke. The taste is gentle and at the same time expressive, the finish forms an atmospheric conclusion.
    Great whisky
    • Nose
      sweet smoke, yellow fruits, vanilla, grassy notes in the background, apricot, somewhat nutty, almond, sometimes hints of fermented fruit, slight associations of salt, dried apricots
    • Taste
      Very soft and very gentle onset, oily body, sweet, gentle smoke, peach juice, passion fruit, sweetened with almond syrup, delicate woody notes, hardly any bitterness, delicate hints of sulfur, milk chocolate with orange peel
    • Finish
      The finish is dominated by the smoke, even if it is very gentle, a little spicy wood notes, in the background sweet salt liquorice, a little panna cotta with caramel sauce, apricot and almond again

  3. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    This is really a good whisky that can keep up with many Scots and the style also goes strongly in the same direction.
    • Nose
      Fine sherry, light smoke, actually looks like a Scot, chocolate, rather bright red fruits and berries, greasy, malt, light mint, beautiful, not super complex, but pleasant
    • Taste
      sweet, creamy, sherry, nice smoke, cinnamon, could also be a laphi, good mouthfeel, raspberry, candy cane, I like it
    • Finish
      sweet, light ashy smoke, strawberry, cinnamon, slightly malty

    Blind tasting: A beautiful and peaty smoker who scores points with his fruity and sweet nose. The creamy mouthfeel is extremely dominant and very unusual for me, but this makes the malt more than interesting and has a very own character. Tastes!

    • Nose
      Dark caramel shines with a reddish glow in the glass, oily "legs" stick to the glass wall. Fruity sweet subtle smoky notes run through the nose, mineral peat is mild and gentle to advantage. Oranges, apricots and a hint of banana exude their lovely bouquet, the alcohol is gently and harmoniously integrated. Milk chocolate and toffee dissolve, slowly the salivation is stimulated while the creamy peat plays with the mild and warm smoky notes.
    • Taste
      Mild and spicy, the first sip flows over the tongue. Creamy tones of wood caress the palate before cold smoke and peat spread powerfully on the palate and a pinch of white pepper brings the tongue to glow. From the pleasant sharpness dissolves a short chili Catch, then slightly smoky wood tones are creamy to advantage. Dark and heavy yellow fruits are on the tongue, the mouthfeel is creamy and greasy. Do I taste chocolate there? The second sip is dominated by wooden and smoky elements, the sharpness increases, as does the prickle on the tip of the tongue. Old walnuts and creamy wood elements play together, minimally hard caramel appears, the mouthfeel is getting creamier and oily.
    • Finish
      Greasy and oily, lightly burned pieces of wood rest on the tongue, dark peat and smoke elements pull through the palate, the mouth feeling is much darker and tart. Once again I have to think of chocolate for a short while, with the extremely creamy mouthfeel quickly reminding me of oil, smoke, peat and a hint of bacon.
