  1. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    a very exceptional and very good whiskey, like a peated lowlander. If he offered something older and more compact flavors he would be an absolute top whiskey.
    • Nose
      At first slightly alcoholic, then a fine, "clean" smoky note as in older Cail Ilas, but not so intense, slightly earthy, maritime very beautiful. Behind it follows an incredible Auchentoshanoeske (?) Fruit bomb with pear, pineapple, honeydew melon. So never smelled in this combination before. Exceptional and great!
    • Taste
      Start slightly acidic, then again extremely fruity, here more mango, blood orange, white chocolate and then a pleasant spicy smoke. Really good! No bitter oak, fits everything, only the whole not yet quite interwoven, more in-line taste sensations.
    • Finish
      long, here comes the fruit and the smoke together. Wonderful!

    Color: gold-yellow
    Nose: Beautiful smoky aromas followed by fruity notes. Mirabelle, quince, subtle vanilla.

    Taste: The initially strong peat notes gradually fade into the background, ripe berry fruits appear, with a hint of pepper.
    There is light smoke over it. Not nearly as fruity as in the nose. Oily, really nice in the mouth, yummy.

    Reverberation: long-lasting and beautiful, fruit notes also dominate here, caressed by peat notes.
    Conclusion: This dangerous sassy Irishman is something very special, as there are probably only single cask bottlings from this distillery.
