  1. Totoro scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Oh yeah, that's the stuff. Blows away the stale memories of the tame 46.3% 18-year-old I had before (WID 93480) with a big-ass gust of peat, PX, and salty maritime goodness. Usually I'm not a huge PX guy, but ever since the Laga D.E., I kind of dig the combination with peated distillate: they're both equally bold and big.
    There's a curious herbal note in here (juniper?) that might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I don't mind it; there's plenty gong on besides: liquorice, fennel, cracked black pepper, umami, cranberry juice, saltwater, dark chocolate... It's weird and it's wonky and not subtle at all, but if you're in the mood for something brash and heavy, this works a treat.

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Really meaty on the nose mixed with dark fruits and after about 30 seconds it smells like sausage.
    The palate is mouth filling, chewy & creamy but it's not happening for me, seems a little dull, falls a little flat but I think I will be in the minority on that one.
    Decent enough with no major flaws

  3. EvilAFI scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A punch of peat and Px mixed with salinity and spice. Not the smoothest or roundest for 19yrs of age, but good in its own powerful way.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet, dry peat, pickled jalapeños, strawberry compote, bbq sauce .
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet again, creamy, ashy peat, salinity, pepper, red wine
    • Finish
      87 87
      Cloying, tart and semi sweet, cranberry, ginger
