  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    declination of one of the most famous islay blends today!
    • Nose
      creamy lemon, sugar!
      grasping peat, fruits on apple and pear
      a little salt
      medicinal seaweed
    • Taste
      oily peat, hospital corridor with its detergent, it carries almost all the scents!
      return of lemon, soap, some herbs, eucalyptus!
      a little bit of barbecue smoke on the end
    • Finish
      on greasy, earthy peat, and a salty spray
      a little fruit, but short finish!

    N- Ceviche, citrus marinated fish notes, pomegranate, whiff of floral and weedy in a rustic air, then muddiness arrived with some soya, olive balsamic and remains actively savory. Eucalyptus, salted nuts and more marine notes overlay. Ashy. (90/22)

    P- Spicy peat smokes, plasticine, smoked fruits, floral and pickled ginger and nutmeg. Stiff with high strength and appeared hollow in the middle. (87/21)

    F- Medium-long, tart fruit and salts, gluey fruits with hearty smokes. (88/22)

    B/B- 88/22

  3. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Smoke full, for me on the tongue more present than in many Octomore. Out back he has his weaknesses with a short and not very exciting finish.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet peat smoke with pear flavor. Also a little banana. Looks fresh and fresh, like a fresh sea breeze with salt and a pinch of seaweed. The nose quickly gets used to the smoke, leaving behind the fruits, salt & pepper, anise and liquorice.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Strong peat smoke with machine oil, hot tar paper and Hansaplastfeeling. Hospital corridor. The pears and bananas from the nose also show up, but unlike the nose, the smoke on the tongue is absolutely dominant. At first oily, but then dry quickly with wood and spicy ham note.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Not very long finish. Dry and very smoky. Hardly any fruit left.
