  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 92 points Moderator

    Really not heavy, rather light and little fruity with some fine smoke and peat, little more oomph would not have hurt and raised my rating - anyways, still very good!

      Fine smoky and peaty, cigar tobacco, herbs, hints of peppermint, green apple, little menthol, spices, old books, some OBE, fruit tea, some smoked ham, some woody notes - very good!

      Little punchy, spicy, subtle sweetness, more cigar tobacco, peaty, smoky, little fruit juice, little black tea, more herbs - great!
