  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Excellent whisky. A perfect Christmas dram for Islay enthusiasts.
    • Nose
      Vibrant, peaty and somewhat minty with an impressive coastal backdrop. Kippers, seaweed and a touch of iodine, but also vanilla custard, charred lemon peel and a whisper of green apple parts and sauerkraut. Just a tinge of soot and rubber soles.
    • Taste
      Mouth-coating. A lovely sweet arrival with some stone fruits, quickly followed by salty chips, pickled lemon and a big hit of peat smoke. Some gentle pepper-y spices in the background. It also has a slight earthy quality.
    • Finish
      Lingering notes of soot and tar with a pinch of black pepper. Long.

    This Lumberjack Alko is worth a sin, well hidden, the taste of fiery ash, scorched branches, very sweet, some liglin, a little peat. After adding a few drops of water, the whiskey begins to open, it is even sweeter, inviting you inside, I smell honey, but one that stands all the time by the fire during the feast, and in addition, still strong smoke.As for me it is a good Christmas version, but not enough to be the best one as the 2019 Christmas version

      Very oily, big spike of rotten peat smoke and fresh wood
    • Finish
      Long rotten peat aftertaste and rubber
