    I like the smell well, it fades in the mouth, but the finish increases again and is very long. Despite the low alcohol content of the whisky is strong. A solid bottling.

    This is a personal choice, and as a lover of peated whiskies, this one will score higher in my case anyway
    • Nose
      Smoke is immediately released, I also smell seaweed, and the typical medicinal scent that is also characteristic of this whisky.
    • Taste
      Smoke remains, but becomes somewhat tarry towards the end. I also notice vanilla flavors and a bit of salt in the end.
    • Finish
      The smoke and peat remain in the mouth for a long time.

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Fine whisky, the harmony of smoke and sweet bitterness, powerful, strong, rich, but at the same time soft and very pitey. Classics, what else to say.
    • Nose
      Vishnevsky's ointment, medical and salty-marine aromas, wet coals of a rain-drenched campfire, peat - these flavors succeed each other on a weak citrus-fruity background.
    • Taste
      Bitterness of charcoal, pepper, turning into sweetness, citrus notes, wet tree.
    • Finish
      Bittersweet, bark, dried citrus peel.

  7. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      First, a lot of iodine and salt before a medical sweetness comes in, reminiscent of cough syrup or herbal tinctures. Then tang, sweet phenolic peat smoke and a dash of charred citrus.
    • Taste
      Supple and very smoky and peaty on the go. Then sweeter, tincture of plant life, salt, ashes, again some citrus.
    • Finish
      Medium length, salty-sweet development with some peat.

  10. vredensever scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Aroma of sea ​​and even fresh: salt, algae, stones, medicine (notorious ointment Vishnevskogo, iodine, bandages), vegetable oil, smoldering bonfire on the seashore, earth, peat, creazote (a little). With warming up sweetness, fruit (citrus notes), branches, foliage. The taste is a little sweet in the beginning. Then sharp spices (pepper), a lot of smoke and peat, charred wood, medicine in all its glory, bad tea (maybe herbal), butter, bitterness. In general, a pleasant little. The aftertaste is dry, smoky: obvious bitterness, wood, coals and burnt oil, peat, a little salt and iodine. Simple. Conclusion . May the admirers of this whisky forgive me. Let this "classic of the genre," as they say, but not mine. No. The fragrance is not without attractiveness. But then it's too rough, smoky and simple. Score 81 (n22t20f19b20).
