  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    This is take-no -prisoners whisky - not that appealing for me. If I didn't know I would think this was sub 10 years, it has a roughness about it and the elements seem not to have married together.
    • Nose
      strength not only hits in the tannic elements, but also quite a vinegar note (rather than lemon); the peat takes a back seat to the pickled notes
    • Taste
      dry, rather spirit-driven then Bovril meatiness and black tea
    • Finish
      ouch, very yeasty and drying; cold tea leaves

  2. WhiskyJoey1211 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    A very interesting sherried and dry Caol Ila.
    • Nose
      Chemical paint thinner, dried stone fruits and amontillado sherry, a faint hint of jujube candy in the background.
    • Taste
      Fairly quick, light body - dry sherry, lightly fruity with a dash of sulpher at the end.
    • Finish
      Dusty ash fading with sherry sweetness and dried stone fruits.
