  8. Dr.Nose scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Color: amber.
    Nose: aromas of sweet peat smoke, raisins, dates, dried plums, fatty leather, walnuts, salted caramel and a hint of the sea.
    Taste: pleasantly sweet continuation of the nose, notes of peat smoke, ash, licorice, prunes, nectarines, cinnamon, black pepper, lovage, ginger and an accent of dark chocolate. The finish is long and remarkably soft with a delicious balance between sweetness, fruit and smoke.
