  1. Gaija scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Excellent. Munching on rollmops between two "lick-sip-suck" Tequila shots. Close to what some good naked Caol Ila's can offer, though less peaty and more saline. Very close to 90, actually it could very well be 90.

      Ravishing freshness ! Some Tequila immediatly comes to mind, with lemon and salt for good mesure. The briny lemon aroma is very precise and pleasurable. Some kind of vinegary fish side (rollmops maybe), pickled onions, a slight rubbery Campbeltown funk. It is very saline in general, which I love. Evolves on some kind of green perfume for men (vetiver, bayleaf) and a bit tad more plainly peaty. But it remains very fresh and very saline mostly.

      Things are really perfect here, the abv is spot on and the texture is very oily. Everything has its place here, with the huge saltiness, the Tequila, the lemon and lime, the cider vinegar, even some touches of pineapple. Sea water. Perfectly balanced. Get a tad smokier with time.

      Still generously salty and lemon-y, with agave indeed, a lot of marine freshness, oysters, light drought after some time (driftwood, sand), Sancerre. Excellent again.

    More simple than the 18 yo 2011 recently tasted but very good. You can't go wrong with a good distillate... Well, you can but not when you have some good casks.
    • Nose
      Peat smoke, mineral notes, light tarry notes, pepper, brine, ashes.
    • Taste
      Oily, smoky, peppery & gingery, lemony. Hints of vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, peppery.
