Whisky Reviews for Secret Islay 2008 TWA

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.38 points

  1. Blake or Mortimer? scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very good selection once more by TWA.
    In the nose, I was at Laphroaig.
    However, considering the nice, rounded and surprisingly mature mouthfeel, must admit I probably will have to travel about a mile further east...
    Anyways a very good one, not cheap considering the young age, but in the end it's still good value.

  2. FluidSunshine scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Laphroaig it must be :-)

  3. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    Intense maritime, medicinal peat, faded and damp hay from the stable, citrus fruit forward, vanilla, woody also soaked in maritime scents, a chewing sensation from Ardbeg?
    mouth:
    delicious on the palate, peat that allies with some citrus fruits and with a vanilla cream, it is soft, fine and delicate;
    the spices arrive later and magnify this sensation
    yellow and white fruits, poached in a saucepan, sweetened with a little almond paste all at once, a little clumped dry and wet herbs
    final:
    subtle, fragrant, peat, malt, vanilla, fruit in syrup on cooked tangerine, fairly simple finish but lasting.
