  1. The Prophet scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A truly wonderful marriage of peat, age and port sweetness. Unfortunately, the second edition was less peatier making it a rather bland spirit.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Mainly smoky. A nice highland's smoke of heather and a touch of cereal.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Fruity without being too sweet, the port coming out strong with flavours of dried sultanas.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long finish with sweet smoke.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Very smoky and very fruity, almost sticky. Not wrong, but somehow not quite my case.

  6. Dr.Nose scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Delicious spicy (somewhat nutmeg) in combination with earthy tones (peat), but also some wood tones in the nose. The taste has a nice subtle spiciness, nice sweetness and again wood tones (dry and some bitterness).
    The finish is medium, spicy and even some menthol.

      very voluminoes, short pungent alcohol but otherwise well integrated, Bacon smoke, subtle dark fruit after a long breath, a hint of port, wood
    • Taste
      Start: tingling, powerfully pleasant, sweetness

      Body: dark port white, vigorous camp fire smoke, raisins
    • Finish
      Smoke becomes weaker, woody notes, creamy, soft, warm, light bitterness

  9. Sonett scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Nose of Sherry, peat and smoke
    • Taste
      Long warm taste of sherry fruits like Raisins dates and figs
    • Finish
      Medium long to long with growing influence of smoke
