  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Very bright and loud peatiness, very refreshing, huge crushed lemon, seashell and brine water. More cream after opening. Hints of red fruits, suggested sherry maturation here.
    • Taste
      Sweet peat, very floral, creamy, fruity and elegant, the mouthfeel is smooth and mellow, some sulphur, huge camphor. Rather simple.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet peat, dried dark fruits, oak spices, gun powder.

  2. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Birthday tasting with Aby and JJ.

    Very highly recommmended and (soon) available on www.whiskysample.nl
    • Nose
      Oily, peaty, eathy and vegetables. Briny - salt, leather, figs and old dusty books. Like a 30 year old Caol Ila or Port Ellen.
    • Taste
      Oily, smoke, salty and some pickle.
    • Finish
      Ashes, vanilla, smoke and pepper.
