    • Nose
      83 83
      Typical Coal-Ila nose, but dull, immature, and hot. With a lot of imagination, light citrus notes

    What one expects is offered solidly: cytrus fruits, transported, with an accompanying medical convoy; The salt of the ocean waves that had previously broken over it; smoking tobacco from the sailors who are now deservedly resting.

    This is easily summarized as lemon and salt - reminds me on Tequila with salt and lemon - actually I like it
    • Nose
      88 88
      Plenty of lemon and brine, salty, iodine, little medicinal, vanilla, limestone, wet hay, cooked vegetables, little tobacco, whiffs of smoke - pretty intense
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very oily, creamy, little punchy, good sweetness, more citric, lemon, lime, grapefruit, green fruits, little peat and smoke
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long, warm, lemon peel and actually more lemon

  10. juju cassoulet scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Smoke, cold fireplace ash
    • Taste
      Quite fatty distillate, medicinal peat and white pepper. We keep a fairly pure profile.
    • Finish
      Iodine, smoke
      EDIT after a few weeks: a lot of salt
