  1. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I would like to have it with a few more years on my back ...
    • Nose
      86 86
      Warm metal, cold smoke, a herbal meadow in the background. Makes a rather bulky impression at the beginning, sometimes even has a slightly alcoholic sting - which, however, subsides after a while. Ripe, yellow fruits (mirabelle plums, yellow apple), lemon water, caramel, honey.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Comparatively smooth (!) Approach. Hard to believe, but true. It warms immediately and intensively, but does not attack the tongue, leaving it virtually outside. Accordingly, there are few aromas: there is, clear, smoke, in a cold version, citrus, there are green leaves and dry wood. Licorice. Flickering menthol. But it no longer goes deep.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Intense but short finish. The tongue continues seamlessly here, a little smoke, a little lemon and a few herbs, then it's done.

    Try it out during the 24th Cologne Stammtisch.
    Very interesting grades give him a bonus point.

  6. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A bomb from a Port Charlotte. It exactly suits my taste! Great smoke, awesome sweetness, the necessary power and a nice flavor behind it. Successful through and through!
    • Nose
      Great sweet fruits, vanilla, nice sweetness, very soft peat smoke, strong maritime, red fruits, a bit salty, strawberries, vanilla cream, pastry notes, light cake, sugared pork ears (pastries), fresh citrus notes, light chocolate
    • Taste
      Spicy, strong chocolate, vanilla, great surprising sweetness, strong start with a real wow factor, caramelized wood, slightly maritime, some tobacco, fresh coffee
    • Finish
      Warming peat smoke, vanilla, light caramelized wood, beautiful sweetness, pleasantly spicy, sweet fruit notes, crunchy sugar crystals, vanilla cream, pastry notes
