  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    A shared dram, so not much to go on but I really liked this one.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Nice mild but still deep sherry notes.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Full rich body.
      The re-charring has really brought the best out of the casks.
      Fully enjoyable without water.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long and tasty.

      Dirty sherry, strawberries, raisins, earthy peat, vanilla wafer, radish
    • Taste
      90 90
      Mouth coating, sherry and rubbery funk, earthiness, light peat/char heat
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long, dehydrated strawberries, baking spices (nutmeg and cinnamon), salty
