  1. serejja scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    While it's quite straightforward, I still find it absolutely great.
    • Nose
      92 92
      This is one of the most gentle noses for peaty whiskies I ever had. Old and dusty, with very little mechanic/machinery features. Hints of pepper and yellow fruit (peaches mostly)
    • Taste
      93 93
      That's even better than the nose. Peaty and ashy, burnt wood and slight sweetness in the background. After a bit some maltiness and candy sweetness appears
    • Finish
      92 92
      Very mouth warming and watering. Peat sticks to your teeth and tongue and then you feel that lingering sweetness. Amazingly pleasant and quite long

    The whisky is not complicated, but the powerful bourbon style has the right to life!
