  1. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Powerful, assertive, highly smoky and straightforward whisky. Tasty, but monotonous enough
    • Nose
      the first nose is concentrated sea salt, smoky soot. A little later, sherry notes begin to emerge smoothly
    • Taste
      Pepper with butter, nicely burns and envelops
    • Finish
      ground black pepper, woody slightly sour, coriander and vanilla

    A promising nose is followed by a slightly disappointing taste and finish. I expected more, but it is still a really good dram.

    Grandiose, a sherry barrel-stored PC with what for me was a concise rum note. Lovely!
