  1. TsiAI scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Smell: soft and delicate peat, light cream, cheese tart, honey, citrus, berry fruit, fruit tea, sea fish, sea salt, some iodine, salt and pepper bacon, rosemary and minced lemongrass 86/100
    Taste: Gentle, stretched but powerful peat, high in saltiness, eliciting bitterness, salt, salted plums, marshmallows, dried sea fish, honey roasted pears, dried western spices, sea-soaked beaches, smoke Salmon 87/100
    Body: Abnormally oily body, with a sense of wrapping 87/100
    Ending rhyme: long, creamy, charcoal grilled seafood, sea rock crystal
    Overall: 87/100. I drank a quarter bucket of Laforge when I just entered the pit a year and a half ago. It smelled like a rusty wall. The peat was raw, hard and rough, almost dissuading me from leaving. In contrast, this exquisite like a piece of art.

    A calm, non-aggressive drink.

      Smoke-filled yellow fruits: apples, pears, banana and apricot. A little medicine.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The taste is sweet, yellow smoky and fruity.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The aftertaste is smoky and sweet. Average duration.

    At the beginning a certain alcoholic note. After 6-12 months, the oxidation of the QC got better and better. Unfortunately, he is now all, but there will certainly be a purchase. Top PLV!

    • Nose
      At first a smoke without concession. At aeration: rum-raisin ice cream, vanilla ice cream. Notes of orange blossom, lavender, violet, rose water, oil, honey and fir sap.
    • Taste
      An explosion in the mouth. Literally: imagine a sweet sphere that explodes in peat!
    • Finish
      Smoke. Empty glass: pine needles pine mile.

  6. HunterRomario scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    It's not like master-beats like the basic 10y but still great 90/100.
    • Nose
      Those who know the basic 10th performance will be surprised how these barrels influence, the whisky is softer, it's not so brutal, I think it's more accessible to those who disinfect means do not need it anymore. You would not appreciate your iodine and peat, but it is a sweet, pleasant veil, everything smoothed and delicate.
    • Taste
      Rich in taste, peat-smoky tones, again slightly softened with sweetness.
    • Finish
      The flavor is not as endless as in the basic fulfillment, you will not feel it anymore kind of day in the morning, but do not worry, you will consume it.

    Expansive and complex.
    • Nose
      Rich heavy nose with a vague floral touch
    • Taste
      Smooth for the strength. Creamy with an ashy dryness. Smoky.
    • Finish
      Toffeish with a spicy burst. Smoke lingers.

  9. Master Quill scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    My score is from a bottle (0.7) from 2006 (COde: M011795)

  10. I_SPEY scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Colour: light gold.

    Nose: Peat, but not too overwhelming, creamy and sweetyish.

    Taste: neat: firm body, rich, salty, but not too, lightly vanilla and creamy - with water: smoky peat, velvety, sweetyish and creamy, less salty and nutty.

    Finish: very long and dry - with water: still long and little sweeter, fruity.

    Comments: for me, this is an excellent whisky and even more enjoyable with three drops of water, imho!!
