    Needs a few drops of water, otherwise it is too one-dimensional. If you have a few drops too much, it will be boring. So dribble carefully :)

    Clynelish and Talisker seem to be the lead malts of this blend.

    Water: No, it is perfect in original strength

    Conclusion: Bämm, you can see here every single distillery, which combine into a great blended malt: the beeswax notes of Clynelish, the salt notes of Oban, the smoke flavors of Caol Ila and the heavy peat notes of Lagavulin, and in the finish the Talisker beats with his peppery finish by. The two lead malts are m. E. Clynelish and Talisker. Very nicely done!!!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Beeswax, yellow fruits (dried apricot), smoke and some peat, some pepper, a distinctly maritime salt note, sherry aromas with dark fruits and some raisins sparkle in between, even some tobacco can be found
    • Taste
      88 88
      first dark sweetness with lots of caramel and toffee, then put through the peat notes, but also some smoke is there, as well as oak with cloves and leather polish
    • Finish
      88 88
      medium to long, again the successful blend of waxy salty notes, sherry and peat and smoky notes, which end in a peppery finale
