  1. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The origin of alcohols is not indicated, but most sources converge on Lagavulin and this is most likely true, although Ardbeg can be recognized in the first nose, but the taste / finish is still behind Lagavulin. A good good representative of Ayla, up to the complexity and complexity of the 16-year-old does not hold out, rather it is closer to the official 12-year-old barrels, generally pleasant, fresh, good.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, dry treated boards, barnyard, musty hay, cooled porridge, a little peel of lemon and mineral notes, marine and medical shades, iodine, viburnum, a little ash.
    • Taste
      Fresh, saturated, smoky-sweet, peat, smoked products, a wave of red pepper, notes of lemon zest and light bitterness of young bark, salt, ginger candied fruits, daikon.
    • Finish
      Light, prickly, smoky-smoked with lemon sour and light pepper, slightly oily, light berry bitterness - cranberries, mountain ash; grassy shades, light caramel sweetness.

    Islay 14 yo 1994/2008 (53,1%, The Daily Dram) Four stars and a halfAnother older bottling that was said to be Lagavulin. And 14 years old to boot. Colour: pale gold. Nose: yes this is perfect. Starts with broken branches and fresh hazelnuts, goes on with some sweet kind of cough syrup, then we find a much bigger minerality that comes with whiffs of farmyard and hay under the rain. There’s also rather a lot of iodine for Lagavulin, but why not. Mouth: starts sweet, on candied ginger and bitter oranges, and rather goes on with some kind of smoky sloe gin, gentian, horseradish, then some very strong lemon. Some salt as well, while the mouth feel remains oily, almost thick(ish). Finish: very long, still walking on this thin Lagavulinian line between civilised sweetness and raw peated madness. More cough syrup again in the aftertaste. Funny pineapples at the retro-olfaction. Comments: smashes you and leaves you breathless. Having said that, it doesn’t quite go into subtleties, but the fullness is impressive. SGP:457 - 88 points. (http://www.whiskyfun.com/vatted-or-undisclosed.html)

    Tasting at the Whisky Festival 2016 during the masterclass of Karel Pinky. Great, I enjoyed it.
    • Nose
      Strongly smoky, shiny citrus. Somewhat richer in water. (88 b)
    • Taste
      Beautifully sweet, citrus, smoke, but also vanilla to honey. Somewhat oily. Then smoke ... smoke ... and smoke.
      In smoke the smokehouse and the top citrus. (95 b)
