Whisky Reviews for The Dark Side of Islay 22-year-old MoS

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.05 points

  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A tasty and very well balanced blend. Normally, a blend with me does not trigger any buying stimulus, and in this bottling shortly after the tasting, the angel and devil have delivered a fierce fight. The little devil said, "Do not buy it, it's just a blend!" whereupon the little angel on the other shoulder said: "Buy him, he's damn tasty!" Wonderfully smoky and characterized by dark fruit flavors, this blend really whets the appetite for more ...

    23/23/22/22 (90P)
    • Nose
      Dark, almost rust-brown amber gleams mysteriously in the Premium Snifter, long oily "legs" pull their tracks back into the glass on the glass wall. The first nosing raises powerful roasted aromas and dried berries, mineral peat and sweet smoke massage the olfactory suppositories, creamy caramel melts with dark berries and old oranges to a fragrant mixture. Peppermint and hazelnuts combine with apricots before slightly decayed wood tones are brought to bear. The alcohol is harmoniously integrated, gradually cherries and bacon released in butter come to light.
    • Taste
      Cold smoke and a hint of ash envelop the tongue and clothe the palate with dark fruit and burned wood flavors. Creamy, spicy wood elements merge, dark dried berries and cold smoke play together, a light tingle tickles the tongue. Oily butter and a hint of bacon, hazelnuts and caramelized sugar end in dark fruit flavors. Slowly, my saliva is stimulated, again come voluminous smoke flavors to advantage. Old peppermint provides a refreshing contrast to the otherwise rather dark and creamy elements, hazelnuts and almonds are roasted in a pan.
    • Finish
      Creamy and oily, the dark aromas in the mouth float, walnuts and spicy wood tones dissolve from sweet dried berries and grapes. With a subtle smoke and Aschenote the aftertaste passed relatively quickly, with a discreetly sharp film is still stuck to the tongue and fresh mint pulls through the palate. Oily, the different flavors blur together, a sweet and fruity smoky note remains for a relatively long time with walnuts in memory.

  2. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very well-balanced blend that does not hide its origin (Islay), but that does not carry it like a monstrance. The smoke is expected to be subtle (but noticeable), the flavors beautifully connected. Blind you would not necessarily recognize him as a blend.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Dark fruit with notes of dried dates and slightly sulphurised raisins. Leather and tobacco notes. Not too intense smoke (which can be described as quite suitable for the at least 22-year maturity period). Dark chocolate, toffee, caramel and honey. Rich in spicy notes: cinnamon, coriander, cloves, nutmeg, pepper. The spice component displaces the dried fruit after a while and combines with leather and tobacco to a beautiful "elderly" nose.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Immediately sweet dried fruits on the tongue. Palate-pleasing and pleasant with high viscosity. Nougat chocolates, toffee sweets, caramel, honey, café au lait, raisin bread. Again cinnamon and coriander, cloves, pepper. Almost a waxy feeling on the tongue. Somewhat clear oak impact, whereby one might have expected more. Very reserved, as far as the smoky note is concerned.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium long and drier over time. The oak increases in intensity and so also enhances the dark fruits and spices.

  3. Blake or Mortimer? scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Very good, no doubt, but in my book less so than the first edition (Scarabus).
    A little surprised about average rating (above 91 at time of writing) to be honest. I'm more of a high scorer usually, but 89 seems a honest scoring when compared to other high-level Whiskies I've been tasting today.

  4. feeroff scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    22 + 23 + 23 + 22 = 90
    Chic dragon!
