  3. Ostfriese scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A young, stormy "Islay smoker" who surprised me with his good portion of sweet. It is not "ultra-complex", but the aromas harmonize well with one another and the consistently good portion of smoke is more accompanying than overwhelming.
    • Nose
      At first powerful smoke mixed with citrus aromas rises in my nose and in the background lies the dusty smell of a granary. Oranges, honey sweetness, vanilla and the scent of a cigar box. The end is earthy and slightly leathery notes
    • Taste
      It starts sweetly before the powerful smoke suddenly spreads in the mouth. Cooling mint accompanied by peppery notes and vanilla. Then it becomes fruity with blood oranges, apples and berries (currants?). Spicy oak, nutmeg, cinnamon and salty pickled meat.
    • Finish
      Warming. Still more powerful, sweetish smoke mixed with ashes. Oranges mixed with salty sea air and spicy, earthy notes.

    A real Big Peat. Well balanced, nice combination of the best of Islay. I Like!

      Finish is not long, but sweet. The peat smoke continues but sweet smoke predominates. Yummy!
