  1. grinface scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A really good value peater from Islay. May be Lagavulin. The nose is the best part with lots of sweetness, peat and medicinal notes. The only turn-down might be the acidity in the finish. But it is still very enjoyable.

  6. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nice interaction of all components, I like limited fillings
    • Nose
      Smoke; maritime; Iodine, sherry (in the Blenders glass) undiluted more smoke, diluted the clear sherry note emerges
    • Taste
      Rauch, Sherry; spicy hot, suddenly the hotness subsides and it becomes sweet, with water the sweetness is there immediately, just like the sherry; Smoke blends in well; oily and furry
    • Finish
      Smoke, sherry, light oak, campfire and ash, slightly tart, undiluted, significantly more ash
