  1. thebonewolf scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    So, this is not for everyone. If the rubbery notes would be unappealing to you, this would be a disaster. To me, I like them because they do go well with the rest, particularly the stony, petrichor elements, and overall I do quite like this.

      Classic Connemara petrichor, clean rubber, apple. Like rubber that was cleaned with an apple scented agent (but not chemically smelling).
    • Taste
      88 88
      Wet river stones, very big pepper, peat.
    • Finish

      Tick up in intensity, smoky rubber, pepper.

  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting Notes: Nose: A strong and concentrated aroma of peat emerges from this unique Irish Cask Strength Whiskey amplifying in intensity when it reaches the nostrils. Taste: A very strong aggressive start with an enormous peat surge in the middle. Then fireworks of aromas explode in your mouth (fruits, spices, pepper, chocolate) uniting with the peat to give a truly complex taste. Finish: Astonishingly long finish with peat clinging to every crevice in the mouth while remaining sweet and glorious.

    "An awesome peated Irish malt that will knock unbelievers for six. A

    gentle yet intense peat presence on the palate, this is a brilliantly

    balanced dram that Islay fans will adore. Picked up the top prize in its

    category at the World Whiskey Awards 2010."
