Whisky Reviews for Islay 55% NAS Wx

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.38 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Great stuff, as delicious as the various Classic of Islay I've tried, 50 € is a good investment. Strong-barreled or quasi-strong Islays with burner separation (not to mention OA) one searches in vain in this price range.
    • Nose
      dirty!!! - earthy, loamy, mineral ... and sweet, sugary, feels like second fill sherry, but also a bit reminiscent of some crisp-sweet 1st-fill-bourbon whisky, definitely good hold, not sucked out. .. the smoke is for 55% not so dominant, burnt-sweet, has something of sweet marinade after baking / roasting / grilling, possibly sweet pipe smoke; no dilution requirement
    • Taste
      I do not want to repeat myself, confirms mostly the nose, not quite so dirty, a little darker sweetness (roasted sugar, molasses, dark chocolate), the smoke is well integrated, strong, full-bodied, yummy ... I would dilute I will milk chocolate, creamier, "lighter", but the fun goes on flutes
    • Finish
      medium long, bittersweet, molasses, cocoa, pleasantly warm

  2. cautopates did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    • Nose
      voluminous, strong, peaty, typical Islay, seaweed and salt air, earthy. Behind the smoke and the high alcohol content comes a little sweetness: dark fruit
    • Taste
      strong onset, salty, smoke, phenolic, leather, has something of Laphroaig or Caol Ila
    • Finish
      long, smoky, sweetish in the end
