  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    It does seem to be a lot about the attack and not much more.
    • Nose
      pungent, sweet. Seems more like a Lagavulin. Faint mandarins or similar
    • Taste
      phenolic, firey; subsequent sips are quite a lot smoother when added to the mouth
    • Finish
      quite bitter which remains quite a lot longer than the alcohol which recedes reasonably quickly

  5. VaryingViewpoint scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Strong punch for a 48% but still pleasant and enjoyable. Very light in colour for a PX, might be a 4th fill?

      Sweet peat, iodine, light fruit and some vanilla.
    • Taste

      Short, sweet peat, some fruit with light bitterness on the backend.
