  2. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    In the glass an eight year old Port Askaig, straw yellow and bottled with 45.8% vol.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Smells sweet and peaty, with a little iodine and yellow fruits. Ripe bananas, apricots, white chocolate, smoked ham and hot rosemary.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Sweetness and smoke and some ammonia at the beginning. Ripe pear and some banana also play a role and a herbal note follows before mint sets in. For his young age he does his job quite well, but everything looks a bit rough and angular.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is medium-long and quite sharp at the beginning, before the sweetness returns on the palate and finally ends in a peppery - smoky finish with a slightly tingling mint.

    Not very complex. A perfect example, if you want to taste pure (medium strong) Islay peat.
    • Nose

      First impression is sweet smoke. I would say, that it suggests a one-dimensional dram.
    • Taste
      76 76
      There it is (different to nose) - pure Islay peat, that is very prominent, but not strong. Behind it, there is laquer and nuts. Mouthfeel is oily and convenient. Fruits only with some imagination - I would call it simply sweetness.
    • Finish
      77 77
      Long maritime peaty lingering taste.
