  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nice steady whisky, with the typical modest peaty touch, combined with some nice spiciness and red fruitiness.
    It definately needs some time, then things get more powerful and more varied, with also more smoke.
    • Nose
      Subtle peat, some rubber, ripe apples, red fruits, prunes. Some spiciness, some woodsmoke. After some time, more alcohol,more peat and even a more farmy character come in.
    • Taste
      Pretty smooth, only a little sparkle, spicy, pepper, with a sour edge underneath. Some tobacco now, prunes. Later on a more creamy structure. Later on, the smoke comes more to the foreground.
    • Finish
      Still smooth, more smoke and ash now, although not very dominant. Also some spiciness, and berries. Later on it gets more warming, a bit drying, and pretty long, some licorice wood.

    • Nose
      84 84
      Fruit, nut, Sherry (really quick). Leather later. Eventually a “wet”, musty aroma.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Smoke, spice, citrus custard/creamsicle/orange-vanilla soft serve (but not as sweet as that actual product).
    • Finish
      88 88
      Earth. Smoke, chocolate, oak/char. Long.
