  1. bert61nl scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Really delightful whisky which suggests youth but offers a faultless peat/sherry combination.

    Tasting notes by: Jim Murray
    • Nose
      Fresh, wonderfully clean Oloroso clings to the oak and peat to form a wonderful trio.
    • Taste
      Big and chewy with the sherry and the peat in perfect harmony. Perhaps uncomplex and lacking sophistication, but the balance is quite stunning.
    • Finish
      Long with a hint of molasses/liquorice adding to the toasty malt and rumbling smoke.

    Not that dark just tawny. Whisky in its mid teens, I would say, but from superb sherry casks.

    Tasting note by: Michael Jackson
    • Nose
      Fragrantly smoky. Perfumy, very floral. Hessian. Sea air. Astonishingly fresh, delicious, appetising, complex.
    • Taste
      Perfumy start. Hint of flowering currant. Nutty. Layers of dry, black treacle, maltiness.
    • Finish
      Smooth. Polished stone. Hard, salty, liquorice.
