  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    a very successful 2nd step
    I'm very surprised how good the Still Young is at only 8 years old

    mmh, I like them indeed
    • Nose
      Smoke, caramel,
      and here now (at Very Young not yet) clearly maritime notes
      Sea, salt, again a nice citrus note and dark peat
    • Taste
      Wow very beautiful peat smoke with sweetness, chocolate on the palate is dark and dry, coffee notes, a little citrus, a tingle on the tongue and palate .. dried cherries
    • Finish
      long,
      dark chocolate, salt and malty sweetness ... my salt liquorice, slightly smoky peat ... delicious! An Islay finish

    • Nose
      Peat. Salty. Much more fruit than the "very young" citrus, apple pears and melon
    • Taste
      Peat, sal ammoniac, alcohol comes to the fore. Caramel and pepper.
    • Finish
      Long, salt and pepper

  10. hs305 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    [September, 2014]  I had this dram during an Ardbeg-Masterclass tasting at Bonn.In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 80 points only.  My notes state it is immature and unbalanced.
