  1. SilentStill scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    From the last David Stirk bottlings certainly the positive surprise. Absolutely recommended malt.
    • Nose
      Surprisingly, first a little bit of smoke and in a concentration and composition as it can hardly be more pleasant. Slightly resinous wood and fresh leather, memories of dry earth and foliage. So deep in the autumn forest. Later some buttery notes. Great nose.
    • Taste
      The earthy notes are still there. Add to that a spicy sweetness that you rarely find. The smoke has largely disappeared. A bit of wood, again quite pleasant stays on the palate for a long time. Very nice.
    • Finish
      Fairly long and spicy finish.

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A decent enough whisky, but there's something lacking here. Not enough subtlety maybe.
    • Nose
      Campfire and barbeque smoke, grilled meat. Some cane sugar with dark, almost burned caramel and red beets. It also has a briny quality.
    • Taste
      An oily spirit. Peaty and vegetal with sweet brown sugar and caramelized beets.
    • Finish
      Warming and smoky, with some veggies even.

    Blind tasting of a sample. There's quite some sulphur in this one, but in combination with the peat it's actually quite enjoyable.
    • Nose
      Dark chocolate, salty liquorice, smoked cod, prune, raisin, earthy peat and ash. A slight maltiness as well.
    • Taste
      Dark chocolate, peat, dark cherry, prune, salt and pepper.
    • Finish
      Peat, dark chocolate, dark cherry, salt and salami.
