  1. Gregers scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    Sulphur bomb, and not much else good stuff showing up on the palate, either.

    • Nose

      Heavy sulphur, matchbox sharpness, on top of brine, smoke, maybe kipper. Campfire. Sweet and sour cherries. Vanilla and custard hide beneath the layer of sharp sulphur. As if you took some creamy fudge and sour cherries with you in the natural farty hot springs. You might ask yourself why, though. Green apples, fruity freshness as well.
    • Taste
      73 73
      Alcohol has some bite, but not too much. Light black pepper, warm, then large dose of oak and very bitter grassy notes, not a lot of sweetness, just a bit of cane sugar. Green apples, light smoke. Not much of the good stuff. Second chew brings some of the sulphur to the palate along with toasted wood and sour apples, very light toffee, light ginger. Third chew is heavier on the sulphur, but luckily also more sweetness and ginger. Really a challenging one to get through. Fun to taste these single casks, though, just to see how different they can be.
    • Finish
      70 70
      Smoke, ginger, toasted wood, banana peel, light note of liquorice root. Cooked vegetables to round things off.

  2. Drochaid scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Aroma: Intense, woody, strong and slightly floral. Taste: Full-bodied, complex and subtly sweet with aromas of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, cloves and hints of sea spray and licorice. Resonance: Long-lasting, warming and sweet.
