  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful fruit bomb, which is already convincing at a young age, was my favorite from the 3 cask selection at the Feis Ile 2019. But as a big fan of sherry, wine and port, I would have actually wished for at least a more exciting cask storage, but that's whining on a high note Level.
    • Nose
      Spicy, hazelnut cream, vanilla buttercream, mango cream ice cream, the nose practically screams dessert, sweet, oranges, really has something of a tropical fruit ice cream, plus almonds, so not burnt. slightly acidic, and above all just a light smoke, which is hardly mentioned with the torrent of remaining aromas, I really just had a popsicle yesterday that smelled exactly like this, it's fun
    • Taste
      oily, here clearly smoke at the beginning, then sweetness, and then the fruit bomb in the mouth, mango, passion fruit, I'm back in the tropics, super tasty, pleasant, drinkable without water, creamy, some fresh floral notes, light oak spice
    • Finish
      tobacco at the back, the smoke increasingly comes into focus again, ash, the fruit settles over the tongue like a nice memory

    Part of the Lagavulin Distillery Exclusive Tasting. Tasted together with four drams and one spirit. And you fill the 20cl as part of the tasting.
    It is a good dram but I did not like the invasive Sherry notes similar to Distillers editions Sherry Puncheon.
