      Peat and smoke. A hint of caramelized bacon comes by. Lemon peel and iodine makes the it a little sharper. At the end a very light hint of sherry.

      Ofcourse also a lot of peat and smoke in the mouth. The bourbon casks in which this whisky has matured takes power with its rich vanilla and oak tones. I taste a hint of marzipan and sherry at the end.

      Long with a pepper. Again a lot of vanilla in the finish and tones of a bag of dried fruit mix.

  3. VISION_CHEN scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Nose: stew, thick soup, with a content of spices (cinnamon and cloves) and candied dates, and some hints of candied fruit, of course the other half is characterized by lagavulin, peat, sea and iodine. Very balanced, but the flavor line is too flat.

    Drink: The body of the wine is still good, ocean, peat, umami, lemon peel, good expression, long finish.

    Overall: Putting it with Lagavulin 10, I would prefer 10, if I prefer sherry cask content, I will choose DE.

    nose:
    Peat and smoke together, maritime peat and smoke on a pile of ash, candied citrus fruits
    mouth:
    salted caramel, cooked peat, smells of bacon on the barbecue the next day more subtle,
    candied wood, iodized herbs brewed by the spray, return of candied fruits on cooked orange, tangerine and grapes, a little bitterness of the nut kernel, peppery spices arrive!
    final:
    peppery, vanilla, candied fruit, iodine, maritime and big fat smoke, peanut shell.
