  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Peaty grapefruits anyone? Furthermore theres some floral [marigolds and pansies?], roasted chopped nuts, over cooked crunchy chip-shop chips turning to well browned buttered toast, a port wine finish coming through with prune juice and rubbery [passion] fruit juice becoming very rubbery as a heavy layer of peat eventually covers and soakes the nose.
    T: Thick sugary, oily, peaty, rubbery, sappy, salty, seaweed arrival - just as the nose suggested. The whole palate is impressively structured.
    F: Fruity peat with violin resin varnish complimented by complex and deep bitter oak notes with dark green seaweed and prawns in a little brine. Long and dynamic finish.
    C: On the nose I got peaty [and a touch of sulphured] rubbery sherry notes throughout. It was the only key off-note amongst the many highlights. A fabulous expression demonstrating the results of well matured spirit in a high calibre casks, bottled at cask strength.
