    Nice dram, starts off a bit modest but gains power in time. Peat, smoke, some sweetness. pleasant.

      Peat- and sweet smoke, some fruitiness like berries, some alcohol but not too intense. Some cow stable too. Later on more sweetness, caramel.

      Sal ammoniac and licorice, sweet smoke and peat, caramel and milk chocolate. Quite some power, getting more intense in time.

      Smoother now, more smoke and ash now. But in time more intense. Ash. Pretty long smoky finish.

  4. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    An intense but very well Port cask matured whisky.
    • Nose
      A friendly fruity peatnose. This Port Hogshead added a lot of sweet creaminess with a very decent body. There are hints of thick syrupy grape juice. There is some sourness as well. Also Tea leafs and hints of tobacco.
    • Taste
      Sweet peat, sweet fruity candy. Dark Grapes, dates and sweet apple. Later on some sourness. Port influences become very clear on the palate. Nicely done! Port casks can overdo things quite regularly in my opinion. Especially on the taste, but this is clearly not the case here. I like this.
    • Finish
      On the finish it becomes very clear we have an islay in the glass. More intense peat influences and smokiness. Ashes, burnt cigar, cedar wood. Along side with that again quite fruity. Apple, pear and more dark fruits like dates, plumbs and dark grapes.
