  1. Jeep51 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    N: Clean. Blend of ultra clean peat, citrus, spray and sea water. Wet dog and licorice after a few minutes.
    B: Clean. Fat and creamy attack. Then a fat peat comes. Big breaking, very powerful without the alcohol being disturbing.
    F: Ultra long, more on smoke and wet ashes.
    C: 61% and yet ultra balanced. The nose is surely more complex while the mouth is of a shattering power but fishing a little by a lack of complexity.

    This one really needs some time; First wild and tough, later on it is getting more quiet, nicer and more tastefull.

      Alcohol is pretty venomous on a regular base, a lot of peat and smoke, ash, salty. But also some pure chocolate, and even some lemon now, which makes it all quiet interesting...

      Peppers, warming, smoke, and lot's of tobacco now. Some sal ammoniak, 'Lacrisal'. Chocolate again, caramel. En fruity too, peach. Salty.

    • Taste
      86 86
      In the taste comes the smoke, ash of light leather, campfire, fruit in the direction of citrus fruits and again liquorice and malt
      A little vanilla, but can also be used without water.
