  3. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    One of the many Islay devils from Thomas Ide, this time a very wild and violent one but also accompanied by a nice sweetness and dark fruit aromas. Islay fans will be very satisfied.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Cold ash, grape-like sweetness, very strong smoky and peaty (you can smell it from 2 meters away after pouring it into the glass)
    • Taste
      85 85
      Again cold and ashy, less smoky and peaty than on the nose, dark fruits.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Slightly bitter and grapedruit-like, long-lasting warmth, good smoky.

  4. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    from the smoke OK, but not exciting enough for me
    • Nose
      sweet, milk chocolate, light iodine
    • Taste
      strong on the palate
      sweet, minimal smoke, earthy
    • Finish
      medium long
