    • Nose
      86 86
      A lovely balance of smoke, peat, butter and caramel
    • Taste
      88 88
      Wonderful maritime sea salt and smoky peat bogs. Oil, leather, Sherry and salted butter also are present on the palate.
    • Finish
      87 87
      A satisfying, long finish with some peppery spice and subtle campfire smoke. This really is one of the classic greats among the 18yr age stated single malts!

  6. erogers scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    This is superb.  Quite possibly my favorite whisky.  When something this special comes along, don’t miss the opportunity to try it.
    • Nose
      Stunning honey, clover, oak wood, toffee, leather, rice pudding with nutmeg, candle wax, light smokey peat, and vanilla nougat.
    • Taste
      Honey, almond, cranberry, citrus, peat smoke, dark roast coffee, vanilla, and oak wood.
    • Finish
      Medium-length, smoky, with some leather, spiced vanilla pipe tobacco, oak wood, and lingering peat.

  7. drkrylov scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Warm, notably flowery. Heather honey, fresh oak, peat, smoky fragrance. Very aromatic.
    • Taste
      Remarkably smooth, firm, rounded.
    • Finish
      Lightly salty. Lots of flavor development: nuts, honey, cinnamon, ginger.

  9. irrerelevant scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    very ripe, full and dense, sweet bright sherry, salty, mineral, light fruits with smoke, very sweet, pleasantly mild in the mouth, great bitterness ... it is difficult to describe this, it is so interwoven, pleasant and dense , really nice malt!

  10. TastyDram did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    This grown-up doesn't have an easy character. Give him some time to achieve his full potential and he'll reward you with a warming friendship.
    This competition animal has already filled its cupboard with awards and deserves so. A great all-rounder and at it's best during winter.
    • Nose
      Quite shy at first. Honey and heather flowers. He shows off his complexity at room temperature. Orange marmalade, leather and bread-pudding with raisins and nuts (and a splash of brandy).
      With water: soft traces of tobacco smoke and sweet raisins. Then the sweetness gets countered by the bitterness of oranges and heathery scents.
    • Taste
      Oranges with honey as a starter. Then sweet peat smoke, oak and strong coffee. Water releases the sweet aroma's. Honey, flowers and some fresh mint.
    • Finish
      Sweet smoke evolves into a strong espresso with cane sugar.
