    Oh dear, what a disappointment. And I had already ordered that mentally several times.
    The first I had to order unfortunately more expensive abroad.

    No recommendation. In my opinion!

    Who expects an increase of batch 1 to 2 here - for me by no means.

    I have awarded 70 points. Honestly, almost too much.
    I'll give him another chance these days.

    Today he does not like me at all: neither nose nor taste nor aftertaste.
    Unfortunately ordered 10cl as a sample.

    I have to say honestly that he also has good feelings about the 2cl. Nevertheless, the constant interplay between "OK" and "neee" is not worth a recommendation. For me an essential criterion in the tasting is always "what remains as aftertaste in the mouth". And here I really have the desire to "add something else" - and if it is "no matter what".

    I am really sad. After the firecracker a Rohrkrepierer.

    And the dark color in the base is not right.

    Slightly thin and one sided stuff, but not bad!
    • Nose
      Sherry, smoke, bacon chips, salted caramel, green apple peel and camphor.
    • Taste
      Sherry, butter, spicy oak and peat.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, creamy.

    Nice smell, maybe Laphroaigish..very smoky, peaty with a big sherry on it. The taste is not that brutal, a kind of ..ardmorish taste with a lot of creamy sherry. Nice, but a bit lighter on the plate. The nose promised a littlebit more. If you like a lighter peated whisky with big sherry, it's a nice choice.
