  1. SimonOHA scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Not very complex overall, but not bad for its age. Pleasant to drink, solid and well made.
    • Nose
      Powerful peat nose. At the same time very earthy, medicinal as well as very mineral, iodized. Slightly honeyed behind. Little wood smoke. Citrus notes.
    • Taste
      Lemon/vanilla palate. Medicinal peat with lots of honey. Caramelized iodine at the end of the mouth.
    • Finish
      Long smoky finish on the bandages, vanilla and very slightly woody notes.

  2. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Medicinal Peat, vanilla citrus, cream, honey, yellow fruits, excellent laphroaig but definitely a modern distillate (80s)
