  1. Glenjasper scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Good solid whisky.

    A really dirty Islay whisky, smoky, spicy, strict and strong. But somehow the delicate taste notes are completely missing here, as with the three years younger NEPETA. The Merlot barrel could have been saved too. That doesn't come into its own at all, is completely overlaid by the whisky. But maybe a German Merlot barrel doesn't have the aromas it needs for a good finish.

    I don't want to badmouth the whisky, you just expect something different with a Merlot finish.

    If I want to compare this whisky, it reminds me of the whiskys in the Classic of Islay series by Jack Wiebers. Only the price for the bottles is different.
