  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    powerful nose on fresh and slightly maritime peat, slightly peppery spices and lemon
    the mouth brings its share of fresh peat, then a little smoky, sea salt, the hospital corridor with camphor in return.
    a little tarry, a little mineral, a little algae drying out.
    the catch, the low alcoholic content brings down the maritime scents, and we only keep a little soot and unsalted brackish water!
    the finish is pleasant, simple, short, with a lemony freshness and a little smoke and camphor, but succinct, requiring a dramtic dram to prolong the effect.

    A real nose of Islay. For the rest I think that the reduction is bad for nectar.
    It's quite simple and it is drunk between friends during an alcoholic party ...
    • Nose
      Salt and mineral peat (flint) with a dirty side.
      Behind you can perceive some lemony notes.
    • Taste
      It is light, we feel the reduction even if overall it is not so embarrassing as that.
      the peat is present with some notes of camphor and I do not know what anesthetic ..
    • Finish
      Average length.
      saline peat .... it's like being by the sea, with iodine and all that goes with it.

    A good honest whisky - flavoursome. Would recommend it.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Smoky, peaty, a decent inviting hit on the nose. Inviting.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Medicinal, peaty, briny - a decent moth feel.
    • Finish
      82 82
      A warming, tingling sensation - some iodine. You know that you've supped it.
