  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very nice whisky. It
    reminds me of the 13 Year Old by Malts of Scotland that I tried a few months
    back (and which was a tad better).
    • Nose
      The nose is sharp
      with a whole bottle of iodine, the chemical element with atomic number 53, also
      known as the typical smell of antiseptic alcohol. Apart from that some maritime
      elements, but those are kept in check by the sherry, that manifests itself as
      caramel and fugde. After a few moments, it becomes quite fatty and meaty and
      offers mashed patatoes! Nicely spiced.
    • Taste
      The alcohol, peat and
      citrus are the first to arrive on the palate. With citrus I mean oranges,
      mandarin and grapefruit. Add the peel of the grapefruit, while the orange is
      caramelized. The sherry gives it a sweet side (think caramel and vanilla), but
      contrary to the nose, it does not dominate.
    • Finish
      The sweet finish is
      medium in length, on pepper and peat.
