  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A really very supernova - even the price (at the Distillery 120,00 € in 2015) still reasonable!
    However, he does not reach the outstanding Supernova 2009!

  5. gossm01 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    It has a relatively oily viscosity and its bouquet is of a relatively strong intensity. I have aromas of marine peat smoke, citrus fruit, vanilla, pipe tobacco, oak and creme brulee. Moderately complex. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. He has clearly noticeable alcohol and a relatively heavy body.

  7. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very nice mixture of vigorous peat and yellow fruit basket among which I distinguish pineapple. In the mouth, soft, supple, but of course very intense, without any violence. With a little water, the peat on the nose takes on vegetal accents: thyme, aromatic herbs.
    Enthusiasm 4/5
