    Amazing!! This note is for the Distillers Agency  A.P.E. bottling for Italy.
    • Nose

    • Finish
      Light smoke, salt water toffee, fruit cocktail syrup, beautiful lingering finish

  3. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    N: Potent, thickish nose with a wide profile. Notes of old sherry with caramel-coffee-peas - that’s a combined note.
    T: More old sherry and aged peat - all a bit flat but also equally a bit good.
    F: Thinnish, oily-sherry with oysters, ginger sugar,… all consolidated ‘just so’. This one has probably aged in the bottle also.
    C: Unfortunately rather a flat example, but a very good ole’ young one at any rate. Blog

    What a belter, just lovely.

    This is out the top drawer.
    • Nose
      Peat, seaweed, brine, shell fish, apple compote and hints of toffee.
    • Taste
      Very refined even though the peat is evident. The mouthfeel is substantial and creamy. There is some fruit, plum and peach but its only faint.

      There is a touch of honey and some spices.
    • Finish
      Approaching long and very smooth with it.

  7. Sonett scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very nice dram that stayed longer in the bottle than in the barrel
    • Nose
      Mild sweet vanilla with light peat, toffee and barley
    • Taste
      Enters with a mouthful of taste, Mild and elegant but a lot of Vanilla and sherry tones slowly going towards mild spices
    • Finish
      Medium long going from mild spices to a finale of lightly heated vanilla and honey

  8. addyhd scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nice talisker from way back, on the nose its a bit spirity and has a short finish.
