  1. Horror_Vacui scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Nose:

    Focused and straightforward. Maritim (wet dew and algae chips), citrus (a splash of orange, a splash of lime), olive oil, nut oil. Banana, some passion fruit, red apple.
    Even in the 1920 Blenders glass of alcohol is barely felt - very very well involved. The smoke is very discreet, campfire with flotsam.

    Mouth:
    Very oily in the mouth, peppery onset, then maritime, with vanilla and nutmeg, the fruit from the mouth is discreet, banana and algae chips, ashen smoke. Subtle seasoning.

    Finish: slightly spicy, vanilla and salty-maritime

    Awesome single cask! Reminds me of the "Masterpieces" of SMS, just more complex and less aggressive. Pierrick had not promised too much when he announced this single cask as something special

    92/100
