  1. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    It seems to be a good molt, but some kind of clumsy, young notes now and then slip everywhere, the bitterness is also a bit much, everything is unbalanced.

  4. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I am thinking of an Islay whisky on sherry cask, as well as a rather
    young age. This could well be Bunna or Laffie. Or even a young Ledaig. Whatever
    the case, it is good stuff. I would describe this as a young, untamed sherry peat animal. After sending Marc my tasting note, he reveals the true nature of his
    sample: turns out to be indeed a young Ileach on sherry: the 12 Year Old
    Bowmore club bottling for Fulldram.
    • Nose

      The nose is prickly and sweet, with a hefty helping of peat. It has
      clear coastal elements, but also a dark sweetness. Hints of butane gas,
      sauerkraut and sea salt on the one hand, candid sugar and a handful of sultanas
      on the other. Very entertaining.
    • Taste

      It is very creamy, but also quite piquant on the attack. This must be
      cask strength, no doubt. Probably even over 60% ABV. Clear elements of rubber
      and salted fish (so very brackish), before the dark side reveals itself: plums,
      old leather, raisins. A sturdy fellow, to say the least. I am sure this one
      could do with a bit of water, but my sample is gone before I get round to it.
    • Finish

      The finish is intense, long and a battle between sweet and salt. Oh, my!
