  1. wncvirus scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Light smoke with light sherry accents.
    Taste: Slightly spicy on the first try, and not pleasant to taste. But after adding a little water better. There are elements of sherry interspersed with light smoke with the addition of spices.
    Rating: 87 100 Finish quite long for me too spicy.

  2. BottleBox scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    One of the best Islay's I have ever had. Simply fantastic. Islaykarakter, distillery character, barrel character. And all perfectly balanced.
    • Nose
      Very aromatic peat smoke followed by a fine tobacco aroma. Sherry tones - only a little oak spiciness, but barley malt in abundance and raisins.
    • Taste
      First strong peat smoke. Then a strong salty, maritime touch comes into its own. Followed by fine citrus aroma.
    • Finish
      Laaaaaaaaaaange, strong, peaty, iodine, oily. Bäm - super long!
