    Smoky-fruity, spicy, a little rubber, salted caramel, notes of iodine. Nice to drink, the finish is quite long. 22.5-22.5-22-22

    To my taste!
    Smoky, maritime and great interplay with the fruits from the PX keg!

    Absolute top malt!

      Very nautical smoke. Sweetness from the PX kegs. The dark forest berries follow suit. The combination is reminiscent of barbecue and smoked bacon. Reminiscent of a gas fire. Quite dirty. Very ripe nose. Everything well integrated. You can still guess a note of chocolate or coffee. Adds complexity.
      Partly smells like in a humidor.
      The nose is really great!

      The red fruits dominate here. However, with a burnt shell. The sweetness is no longer so evident. Now herbs come through too. The whole thing underlined with a spice.

      Here it then falls off very easily. Not as intense as some other representatives who come from Islay. But that doesn't matter. Amazingly tasty.

  9. tangtang scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very unusual malt on the palate. Very interesting flavor profile. The alcohol is very well integrated. Delicious.
    • Nose
      Slightly smoky with dried fruits, some herbs, citrus fruits, honey, looks harmonious and quite soft, some nuts, later a little ash and chocolate
    • Taste
      slightly smoky, gummy bears, herbal sweets, very fruity, a little pepper, berries, dried fruits in the background, slightly nuts at the end
    • Finish
      spicy, slightly smoky finish with oak and dried fruits, nuts and light chocolate. Medium length
