  1. greg_0277 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Not my favorite profile but it's nice and really very well done
    • Nose
      90 90
      On the nose: Iodized, seashells, boat rope then citrus with lemony notes. Very fresh, slightly medicinal.
    • Taste
      89 89
      On the palate, it seems to me quite medicinal as a starter but calms down very quickly, tending towards cold ash and a return to the maritime side.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long finish on ash and chalk.
      The alcohol is very well integrated.

    nose:
    lemony, velvety, peaty, frank peat and strong mint that accentuates the impression
    vanilla lemon suddenly, we go to the port under the spray with the air taken by salt, iodine, the sea side, the rocks and the spray that settles on it
    sweet milk chocolate return
    mouth:
    velvety, strong and soft peat, fresh citrus fruits, some slightly cooked, peppery spices arrive suddenly, it becomes bordering on lardy, smoked badly washed, still lemony with the milk bathed in cocoa
    the sweetness floats, the maritime peat amplifying the scents, a vegetal, minty return is felt, the cold ash appears at this moment.
    final:
    the eucalyptus fills the glass, the sweet peat, the salty side, pastry limit with the creamy milk chocolate
    citrus fruits that last with associated plants, you can smell the green! the smoke comes to put a veil on the glass, long finish.
