    Full aroma. Simply delicious. Orange, peat (subtle) and fruit. Sherry felt little. Rather rounding off. Great whisky.

    Excellent and at perfect drinking strength.

    Worth getting if you can find it at the right price at auction.
    • Nose
      Reminds me of some Port Ellen but not as refined. The peat is evident and so is the sherry. I also get Tar, brine and a little mint.
    • Taste
      More kick than I was expecting but very good with it and also smooth. I get faint hints of blood orange, lemon, slight liquorice taste and treacle toffee but the very dark kind. I also get hints of strong mint like when you had a trebor extra strong mint 5 minutes earlier and your palate is still fresh from it.
    • Finish
      Quite long, smooth peaty sweet finish

  7. autowatch092 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Very dark amber
    Nose: Beachside bonfire, cherries, nutmeg, cigar box.
    Palate: Crispy bacon, peat, mixed forest berries, cloves and a mild version of the signature pepper and “chili catch”.
    Finish: Very long, fruity and smoky
    Overall: Many peated malts have a distinct “bacon nose”, not this one. Instead it has the strongest taste of bacon I have ever experienced in a whisky. I love bacon, and I love this whisky.

    blind tasting with J J
    • Nose
      oily, lime, glue, polish, citrus, cookies – cinnamon and some Sisi
    • Taste
      briny – coastal, cloves, meaty, peat, spices, leather, citrus – lemon en winegums
    • Finish
      meaty, sausage – cloves, spices and smoke

  10. BottleBox scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Great whisky. PS: I do not judge the color of dyed whisky.
    • Nose
      Peat smoke, sea salt, a little peppery, fruity and caramel. With water adds an oak wood note and the peat smoke increases.
    • Taste
      Strong, complex, a little salt. A mix of dark fruit and spices.
    • Finish
      Long, warm and very aromatic.
