    Ignore the price. This whiskey just makes you happy. The smoke is complex, fresh, hearty, beguiling. At the same time, the whiskey is finely balanced and also has sweetness and acidity to offer. From the nosing to the smoked bacon finish, this whiskey is a delight. There are far too many whiskeys out there that offer a fraction of this price at multiples. 88/100

    In the aroma there are burnt spruce chips, smoked meat with dried prunes. The taste is dominated by burnt rubber with plastic and bitter needles. Medium finish, spicy with black pepper and fresh tires.

    Quite balanced, understandable, a kind of fire at a tire dump, a little bitter, simple and concise.

    RATING: 81pts - | 80 - 82 (B-) → Okay | - No major flaws, worth tasting.

    Blind tasted: Had typed a Lagavulin or Laphroaig.
    • Nose
      Sour fruits combine with peaty smoky aromas and hints of roasted nuts. Overall, very youthful.
    • Taste
      Nice mouthfeel - medium body. Strong smoke flavors (bacon) with sweet fruits, iodine, malt, some citrus, spices and oak.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky-peaty, malty with some wood. Dries your mouth slowly.

  12. Jaydee scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Nose has a lot of smoke and peat, iodine, but turns slightly fruity after some time in the glass. Lots of smoke on the palate, some sweetness as well. Finish is relatively short, smoke, hints of tar and bit of an unpleasant bitter taste (improves when in the glass for some time though). This is a simple, not very complex whisky, smoke from start to finish.

  15. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    LMDW tasting note Color: deep gold. Nose: Gentle and firm at the same time. Liquorice stick notes, bourbon vanilla. It opens with more iodized and medicinal notes (bronchodermin). Becomes more mineral, oil notes and hot macadam. Evokes the pungency of a chimney fire. Citrus, grapefruit and orange notes. Palate: Very gently, it is dominated by the liquorice stick. It confirms the notes of the nose developing on camphor and eucalyptus. Subtle peanut notes. Final: Firmer and austere. She is back in force on the mineral register, with notes of oil. Endless on liquorice and fire. Style: Marin and fresh.

  18. Banzai scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Not very complex. The peatsmoke is dominating. As a matter of fact I don't taste anything else. It's like a liquid ashtray. Not my cup of whisky euh... tea.

    Distilled at an Islay distillery that starts with an "L"

    Two very different experiences: 85 in 2012 and 79 in 2013. 82 points it is!

    On the label:
    Colour: Gold
    Nose: Engaging smoke mixed with refined marine hints and citrus notes
    Palate: Exquisite balance of smoke and peppery spice
    Finish: Lingering spice and peat

  22. tdaliviu scored this whisky 83 points Member Junior

    Nice Caol Ila-ish nose with something sweet in the background. A quite rounded palate (maybe too rounded). Long, ashy, smoky finish. A bang for the buck indeed!

  23. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nice smoky dram. Must be a Bunnahabhain!?
