  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I would have hoped for something more. In itself it has nice notes and character for its young age, but an extremely penetrating, bitter aftertaste that I don't like at all.
    • Nose
      Mashed banana, light old bottle flavors, coconut, slightly damp leather, damp grass, slate, damp autumn leaves, ground cocoa beans, later also liquorice, subtle malt, smoke only (still?) very faintly in the background, some herbal tea
    • Taste
      Slate, leather, very dry, bitter notes, pencil lead, coconut, nettle tea, malt, apple stone, honeydew melon and peach, red apple with peel, mocha, fennel
    • Finish
      Apple core, fennel tea, other herbal teas, malt, lead, dry-bitter, medium length

    Not the typical Islay-fruitiness where Laphroaigs from the 1960's are famour for. But stil very enjoyable.
    • Nose
      Starts a little bit restrained with blackberries and gooseberries. Hints of smoke at the backgound. Also polished oak and sweetnees of cake mix. Butterscotch as well. It's all very gentle and fragile.
    • Taste
      More on candy-floss and sticky toffee. Lots of cinnamon and ginger bread. Cocao butter. Later on roasted malt and burnt toffee. Nuttiness of almonds. Not the tropical fruit I would have expected at forehand.
    • Finish
      Not that long and quite dry. A little nutmeg. Some tanninns of cedar oak.
