    Tasted at a casual day. Last bottle was sold, otherwise I would have bought one.

  5. Mascht scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Fat smoke and engine oil but the beautiful Port flavors go down a bit, because the finish was then probably a bit too short
    • Nose
      87 87
      Dirty smoke, icing sugar, motor oil, onions and balsamic vinegar and ripe red fruits
    • Taste
      87 87
      very dense, fat smoke, oily and waxy, warming, wild berries and herbs
    • Finish
      86 86
      long and oily again

    Well-known notes of icing sugar, sea breeze and ripe red fruits, Beerenauslese. Beautiful integrated smoke, not a big litter!

  9. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The panel were initially trepidatious about this one with its near-purple colour. Indeed, the first description was of ‘peated cranberry juice’. There followed redcurrants, dried red fruits, peaches and cream, iodine, ointments, strawberry jam, syrupy peat oils, red liquorice and bonfire ash. Water brought out blueberry muffins, lavender, burning heather, rare steak with pepper sauce, wholegrain mustard, freshly eviscerated haggis, black olives in brine and lemon compote. The mouth was all smoky bacon, peat smoked fruit jams, wood spice, mushroom powder, engine oil, brine, soot, kelp and blackcurrant cordial. With water we got bay leaf, burning newspaper, putty, beach pebbles, flints, wet earth, silage, green peppercorns and mercurochrome. Matured for 12 years in a bourbon hogshead before transfer to a fresh port hogshead.
