  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very nice and balanced whisky, great combination of peat and sherry, very nice marriage here. Some farmy elements, hardly any alcohol punch, smoke and ash, plums and berries.
    Very enjoyable dram.
    • Nose

      Very full scent, a nice farmy touch with peat, earthy, grassy notes, hay. Some fruitiness, ripe red apples, berries, plums. Woodsmoke. Fake leather.

      Thick, quite smooth yet very full, licorice, woodsmoke, red fruits, plums, ashy. Some honey sweetness as well,creamy, caramel.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Very smooth now, ashy, woodsmoke, red fruits, cassis, a bit of hay. More peat and smoke now, a bit heavier (like less lighter notes) then in nose and body.
      A bitter smoky touch remains for a long time.

  4. WhiskyCasual scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Great nose, but then becomes more one-dimensional in the mouth.
    Ash, pleasant sweetness and leather

    Nice integration of sherry and peat, though the finish is a bit straightforward and short, very drinkable.
