    The nose is good, and promises, but... the taste is simple, burnt barrels, the aftertaste is indistinct.... good whisky is easy to drink, but no more...
    it turned out it was already 18 years old, but where are they, sorry? ....

    It's objectively good, but nothing more for my tastes.
    • Nose
      Smoky and iodized nose. Citrus grapefruit and tangerines. Green olive. Some aromas of dried fruits behind but you have to concentrate.
    • Taste
      Well smoky on the palate, but balanced with a salty and maritime side. Peat on the seafood shell, sweet and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long and smoky finish, slightly bitter. A few dried fruits sometimes, but discreet.

    Great whisky, almost complete. It is a pity that it is so expensive ... Well, something good must be valued. The sweetness mixed with sea salt gives an amazing experience, and the additional fruit, marmalade and citrus ingredients complement this perfection of this drink .... The smoke in this bottle is a complement and does all the work .... If not for the price .... well, I'm already starting to put it back in the "sock" for the next cylinder when it ends. ????
    • Nose
      smoke, salty breeze, strong sweetness of plum jam and yeast dough crumble
    • Taste
      again a lot of smoke, the sweetness of vanilla, honey, chocolate, citrus, grass clippings
    • Finish
      long, smoky, pleasant, fruity, slightly peppery, pleasantly salty at the tip

    Good balance and rather easy drinkable - very good!
    • Nose
      91 91
      Seabreeze, iodine, brine, some shell fish, oyster, citrusy, lemon juice, little smoky, orange zest, hints of vanilla, almond oil, little spices and herbs - very good!
    • Taste
      92 92
      Oily, creamy, little punchy, subtle sweetness, white tea, more shell fish, smoked oysters, litt peaty, lemony, vanilla, fruit juice, spices, little herbal - even better!
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium long, warm, spicy, zesty, more orange zest, little herbal, probably a tad bitter in the end
