  1. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Color: wheat field

    Peat content: very strong
    • Nose
      92 92
      Strong aromas of sweet peat smoke, iodine, nougat brittle and salted caramel.
    • Taste

      Full-bodied and ripe for his young age.
      Astringent, he immediately fills the entire mouth with strong peat - wonderful.
      Tart and spicy after seaweed & curry mixed with apple juice. The flavors are very nicely coordinated.
      I had rather expected a boisterousness that cannot be enjoyed on its own & am pleasantly surprised. Dilution is not absolutely necessary.

      Lots of smoke, kelp, iodine, apples & curry.

    A very nice peat monster, all in power, which is still drink without water despite its high degree. Really an excellent dram, which I found much less maritime than during the first tasting. I found instead the same chocolate notes, very pleasant.
    • Nose
      Relatively alcoholic at first nose. A rustic meaty peaty side, reminiscent of slightly mushy red meat. Then appear notes of rubber, tar, chocolate scents and pepper. The water brings out aromas of citrus (lemon).
    • Taste
      Pretty nervous. Powerful and peaty, also attacked, then develops briefly on chocolate and peppery notes, before peat mixed with lemon juice regains the upper hand. The water soothes and brings out a certain sweetness.
    • Finish
      Medium length, but intense, very peaty, on the ash, with a hint of licorice.
