  1. Myke scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Pleasant Islay - maritime in the nose & smoked ham in the taste. Delicious.
    • Nose
      83 83
      First of all for beginners: it is smoky, but not as "stinky" as the Ardbeg TEN.
      Maritime note is clear, some iodine as a 'medical note' is also present, as is the campfire character. The sherry aroma is delayed, but can still be smelled clearly, together with a little sweetness. Lightly smoked ham.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Slightly weak but comes. Smoke weaker than in the nose. Spices and sherry. Salty on the tongue. Iodine & maritime note not so strong (but still very pleasantly present). Smoked ham a little more concise. Slight sweetness.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Oak quite weak. Smoky, ham, spices. Slight malt note. Maritime than Bowmore 12, but similar to the smoked ham (Bowmore 12 is a bit more pronounced there).
