    88+ points on average? That's quite overrated in my opinion.

  9. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The classic of Islay. Still good. A balanced blend of sweet and smoky. Complex but not complicated.
    • Nose
      Much more pleasant (campfire) smoke. Sweet sherry, red fruit. Iodine, salt, seaweed and smoke. Some oak and caramel.
    • Taste
      Smoke again, as if from a cold campfire. Oily and powerful. Smoke and cold ashes. Then savor sherry fruits, salt, licorice and iodine.
    • Finish
      Long and warm with some licorice, salt, oak and smoke.

  10. Koning scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    A very rich and inviting whisky
    • Nose
      Sweet
      peat, earthy like a tajine stew, nutmeg, smoked ham, chocolate, seaweed
    • Taste
      Juicy with salmiac, liquorice root, sea influences (oyster-like), and dry peat smoke
    • Finish
      Salty black olives, various spices, woody, finishing a bit dry
