    Blind sample.

    My guess was elements of islay peat, full proof. I’m pretty happy with that guess! I really like this dram. It’s not perfect, but it’s honest whisky. Young peat can be great too. You get a sense of the wort and mixed with very fresh, brooding peat.

    Lemon seeds, oily, brine, capers, billowing smoke, clean wort and distillate. No fake sherry or deception here. I love the Christmas theme packaging too.

    A very balanced vanilla and bourbon nose, quite greedy even, sponge cake, whipped cream, pastry cream. Icing sugar. But the peat is there of course, powerful, in the company of a fresh and salty iodine. It's the morning breeze on the beach. Vanilla in the mouth, a zest of lemon, white fruits, plums, kumquats. which bathe in a thick peat. Very appreciable explosive finish, sufficiently long and well controlled. Coal, limestone, gravel.

  4. Querky scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Very enjoyable Islay whisky with loads of sweet peat, barley and honey. Seems like a rather young whisky from refill casks, but this helps to preserve the typical character of smokey Islay whisky.
    Unfortunately it‘s not possible to taste the few drops of Port Ellen you get per bottle ;)

  9. DannyDram scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Ash, extinguished fire, candy, vanilla, spicy, citric. The smoky obscures the underlying aroma, lively and somewhat unbalanced. Warm, sweet, full of body, limited complexity and little depth.
