  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    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

  4. 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.

  5. Max Power scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Seaweed, peat smoke, sea salt, followed by Sherry sweetness, caramel, ripe dark fruits, spices, Christmas stollen, blood orange, some wood. Monstrously complex.
    • Taste
      Pepper, orange, fruit note becomes darker, peat smoke remains behind. Oily and very voluminous.
    • Finish
      Pleasant, long, wood and warm smoke remain. Warming and very balanced.

    Good quality dram. Nice minerality and fruitness.
