    Enthusiasm 4/5
    Whisky n ° 1783
    • Nose
      Bacon with honey at first nose! Some exotic fruits, which rise in power. Apples and vanilla. Clearly evokes an Irish.
    • Taste
      The peat is more marked than the other batches that I have tasted, it seems to me, and it pulls towards incense. Soft and pleasant, fruity with woody notes that dry slightly.
    • Finish
      Sparkling spices quite marked, beautiful length. Exotic notes of old lingering cognac!

    * Tasted it in June 2013 at a masterclass by Gordon Dundas ( Brand Ambassadeur of Bowmore, Auchentoshan and Glen Garioch) found some old notes.

  6. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Horny bourbon smoke monster. No comparison to the very weak batch 6
