  1. dRambo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I would be blind here in the 70s - a little less port influence would have been good for the departure - overall an exciting tasty drop - undervalued.
    • Nose
      90 90
      retro peat that immediately reminds me of the 70s, beautifully degraded and integrated - old books, spine, tobacco, some ash and subtle mineral notes that combine very nicely - behind it a fruity dancing wall made of wild berries and dried dates, slightly sulphured - very sweet sour and fruity in a pulsating eternal struggle for dominance in the nose and therefore very lively and enticing
    • Taste
      90 90
      fruity sweet, polished old oak, nice and dusty, stone powder, sparkling shower powder, waxed leather, chocolate bitterness, strawberries, blackberries, dates, Camembert crust, the smoke is always there - noble, fine, well connected - very floral and creamy - strongly reminiscent old Talisker from the early 80s without the chili catch
      a great mix of magical smoke aromas, subtle fruitiness - which is tempting but not overlapping and a spicy, tasty, bitter base note. He seems very old to me without becoming too lame.

      here it weakens a little - you can chew it for a very long time without it watering down, even if it stimulates saliva very much - then you swallow it, but it is gone and gets a bit bitter, with the second sip still cress and a little bit of ash

    A first bearing on ex-bourbon casks and ex-sherry casks make him full and give this lovely malt flavors along. A finish on port barrels make this wonderful break and give him the final full flavors of red wine or something even softer towards postage, many fruity notes of apple, berries and jam.
    Finally, there are notes of malt and coffee in exploring this that give him the unique splendor
