  1. PunxsutawneyPhil scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Extremely good for what it is: A young and peaty whisky. I enjoyed this immensely.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Peat, vanilla, fresh lemon grass, some honey, a hint of yellow fruit, citrus, some banana, a hint of coconut, some oak
    • Taste
      88 88
      Strong, a nice mix of peat, vanilla and citrus right from the start. Not that much development, but that is not bad.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long, not drying and only slightly bitter.
      A warm peaty glow remains, vanilla, oak and citrus notes come by in waves.

    CASK No. 122.24

    Lightly peated

    "Spray-lashed spinnakers"

    Desciption:
    An interesting dram – the nose offered us slate and salted almonds, soft fruits, cake mix, burnt cardboard and salami. On the initial palate the smoke seemed restrained but intensified on the second taste; we also got porridge oats, buttermint sweets, burnt walnut shells, oysters and mussels. The reduced nose combined smoky and maritime – rock-pools, grilled prawns, tea chests, coal dust and salty canvas (like spray-lashed spinnakers or a mermaid’s apron). The palate now held a lick of burnt wood and a combination of sweet and salty – sea salt and caramel pieces in dark chocolate, Horlicks, chocolate-coated nuts and cocoa marble cake.

    Price October 2018: 52 GBP
