  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Just too harsh, why always.
    • Nose
      the alcohol is surprisingly well integrated, slightly malty, fermentation notes, beery, slightly musty, some vanilla. With water, the citrus notes are fresher, the musty disappears easily. There is a hint of peat in it.
    • Taste
      pure almost not edible, a strong bitter note pervades this whisky. It does not get much better with water. The 9 years in the barrel have left a little too much bitterness.
    • Finish
      The departure of the 9er is simply just tart, slightly tingling, hint of peat, bitter and astringent.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Compared it to the sherry matured casks 280 and 282, and this one is clearly the best one of the three.
    • Nose
      Citrus, toffee and vanilla. Peat indeed, but in a vegetal sense: moss-like, and even something like cactus. Very different from peated Islays or even Highlanders. Eventually also typical Lowlands notes like grass, grain cooky and hay. With water more of those notes as well as grapefruit and white pepper. Very nice nose, reminds me a lot of Littlemill.
    • Taste
      More peat now: Dark chocolate. Lime, toffee, hay, orange, grapefruit and pepper.
    • Finish
      Peat, dark chocolate, toffee, orange, lime, peat, straw, cooky and pepper.
