  1. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Sulfur-sensitive people should keep their hands off this vintage from Loch Gorm. Although it is not excessive, it is already so pronounced that it can be perceived as dominating. If you accept hung sulfur as a characteristic of a whisky, you can't go wrong with it.

      The Oloroso sherry barrels are clearly noticeable: raisins, dried dates and figs, nougat, marzipan and - a not to be despised note of sulfur that brings musty and musty barrel notes to the nose. Only weak peat smoke, it cannot really prevail against the sulfur note.
    • Taste

      Also on the tongue clearly sherry-accentuated: raisins, fermented grapes, nougat, marzipan and clove powder. Here, too, the sulfur, which is a little milder now that the nose has already got used to it.

      Short and concise, smoky, grape-sweet, a bit like dried herbs.

    very smoky whisky, the other flavors are neglected. But you can drink in between.

      quite long with smoke, vanilla, oak and ash

  4. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Clear, dirty, sweet sherry, a little gruff peat smoke. Interesting dram, but a little missing.

  6. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Bacon and salt, fresh fruit and cherry brandy. Cereals. Allies gluttony and maritime side. Very young and fresh. Very fine, too. Salt supported in the final but without sacrificing balance.
    Enthusiasm 4/5
