  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Let us be honest: this is excellent Port Ellen at an
    affordable price. Affordable? This is 200 EUR! True, but it is at least as good
    as the official releases, probably even better (I have to tread carefully here,
    as I have only the fantastic 7th Release on the shelf). Those OB
    releases cost at least 50% more. Come on, Santa, make my day!
    • Nose
      The nose is very sweet and fruity. Turkish delight,
      lots of citrusy notes: lemon, dried oranges and grapefruit. Granulated sugar
      and vanilla. Then (as expected, I would say) it delivers the typical Islay
      aroma of seaweed and salt, smoke and sweet peat. The whole is delightfully soft
      and accessible, almost feminine.
    • Taste
      As soft as it is on the nose, so powerful is the
      attack. Again a lot of citrus (more than on the nose), but quite peppery.
      Powerful and big. It does remain exceptionally sweet and I must confess, I like
      it a lot! Despite the very high ABV, it is perfectly quaffable.
    • Finish
      The medium long finish offers the same tastes. But
      when something is quasi perfect, one can only cheer.

    A restrained and citrus and buttered vegetable nose, with only a hint of soft creamy peat. The palate is again buttery and citrus with salt and black pepper, with apple and vanilla smoke on the finish.

    My best islay whisky so far!
    Perfect balance between fruit, salt and peat. Powerful and subtle at the same time. Sublime!
