  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A wonderfully impressive second showing from Torabhaig, who are really starting to win me over.
    • Nose
      Warm and inviting. Savoury, sweet peat with notes of burlap, tobacco leaves and a whiff of mint, but also sweet orange zest and a touch of chalk. A gentle coastal breeze as well. I’m impressed with the balance and find it somewhat reminiscent of Ledaig sans the sauerkraut.
    • Taste
      Oily and mouthcoating. A sooty arrival with plenty of barley husks, wood smoke and a subdued salinity, but also a touch of petrol. Some proper farmy notes as well as fennel.
    • Finish
      The finish showcases a more mature side. There’s notes of tobacco, menthol and a gentle peat influence I normally associate with (much) older releases.

  2. Sporx scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: lots of smoke, fruity, vanilla, umami

    Taste: smoky, surprisingly oily, creamy, spicy, a little pepper, a hint of salt

    Finishes: medium to long, a little fruit

    It's like Talisker 10 and Ardbeg wee beastie would be mixed.

    It is a very good drink.

    The youth of course notice it because of its edges and sharpness, but it is still well crafted. I liked the sweet and tart interplay - October 2nd, 2021

      Mild smoke, grain, vanilla, sugared lemon, mineral, salty
    • Taste
      83 83
      Sweet and tart at the same time, sugared pomelo, long-lasting and tingling spiciness, vanilla, the second sip brings even more sweetness
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short, woody with dried herbs, dried mint
