  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    "The number of independent bottlers who finish our good stuff from bourbon barrels in some weird wine and sweet wine barrels and then sell them for expensive money is legion, we should try, too." No o-tone Mr. Campbell can but imagine yourself well. The good thing about this càirdeas: you can still clearly taste its origin, which means that it has a lot of advantages over some UA bottlings. Delicious.

      Rich, phenolic peat smoke with sun-warm tar cardboard, with "crisp", well-hung seaweed, Hansaplast, dried fish - must be a laphi ...
      Dark fruits (plums, cherries, blackberries) from the port barrels, the wine barrels provide grapes and thus a fruity-fresh note. Dried figs, light chocolate, forest honey, some allspice and savory. Thyme! Freshly cut branches.

      Starts on the tongue with some force, but is velvety and creamy at the same time. Lays a sweet-tart aroma landscape on the tongue, both grapes and dried figs, as well as tart herbs as well as pepper and salt. Clear toffee and milk chocolate. Initially blessed with a good dose of smoke, he adds one or two shovels of peat over time and really fires up the stove. Dry and phenolic. A short walk across the hospital corridor: Sister, please change dressings, smells.
    • Finish

      Medium and dry finish with lots of chocolate and toffee, still rich smoke, bitter herbs, fresh plums and apricots.
