  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    This would score four extra points on the nose alone,
    but on the palate and in the finish, I am a bit put off. Sorry, that is just
    the way it is. Around 80 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is bittersweet with loads of grapefruit and
      lime. Reminds me a bit of Limoncello, actually. The ash and salt are rather
      limited, just like the peat. Mercurochrome. A nice mineral side with something
      that reminds me of chalk. Then turns sweeter on honey and vanilla and even some
      candied sugar. Nice development. Water brings more citrus and sugar.
    • Taste
      It is quite creamy on the palate, but immediately I
      get a bit of a weird taste. Butter milk. That is
      a bit off putting, I am afraid.  More ashes than on the nose, as well as
      more citrus. The peat is more outspoken too. Adding water does not
      get rid of the weird taste, though.
    • Finish
      Long and salty finish.
