  1. Dutchdram scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

      Starting with a little hint of peat and smoke it quickly turns fruity with notes like oranges and caramelized apples. Immediately after it goes sweet with notes of vanilla custard, heather honey and caramel. At the end there are notes like cinnamon, ginger and thyme.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Big smoke and all kind of pepper. These strong notes make place for the more subtler and sweet notes like vanilla, chocolate and caramel. Citrussy now with oranges and grapefruit. There are also notes like cinnamon, bitter macarons and oak. At the end some sea salt.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long. With notes lingering like vanilla, honey and a little note of chocolate. Also some chocolate and oak.

      Custard, coffee candy, orange, butter, peach, apple, smoke and sulphur. After a while the sulphur gives way to more butter. With water: Prawn crackers.
    • Taste

      Peat ash, apple, blueberry, butter, caramel, custard and peach. Cleaner with water , more berries.
    • Finish

      Peat, butter, apple, orange and peach.

  7. bikenerd did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    There is no sub-great whisky as long as only newbies rate it.

    This way the rating system makes no sense anymore. :-(

    Maybe a filter to exclude the notorious high-scorers would help?
