  1. Amsterdam scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Created by a group of independent distilleries. They joined forces and worked with designers waiving usual fees, so £40.94 from every single bottle sold could be donated straight to Refugees International Japan to help the country rebuild after the earthquake and Tsunami in March 2011.

    some meatiness, slightly peaty, fatty and minerally like a cambeltowner, grass, lots of apples. On the taste the Islay profile is more prominent

  5. m884 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Peat, mineralic (very Springbank), peat sweetness - delicate, vanilla, peat, bit smoke, thick and oily, rubber, fermenting rice?Mouth: erica, peat, a bit raw green vegetablesFinish: warming and quite long, tad oak, vanilla, peat sweetness (very reminiscent of Laphroaig 10yo), tad alcoholic at the very end.Comments: Surprisingly peaty and very springbanky if I may say so also a bit rough around the edges. BUT I like it! A lot of flavors to discover. Adding water makes it a bit rounder.

  6. Willie JJ scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Wonderfully full bodied and rich, but not a model of refinement. A powerful dram for its 46% strength.
    • Nose
      Masses of malt and barley sugars, orange, vanilla, a hint of coconut and a blast of a smokey kiln.
    • Taste
      Sugary oatcakes and orange barley sugars with marmalade, pepper and peat smoke.
    • Finish
      Richly sweet and spicy with more lingering smoke.
