  1. Cheng Chee Kaan scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Dirty, very earthy peat smoke. Pungent and strong. A very pronounce wood sweetness behind the smoke. Citrus fruits. Lots of spices going on. Nutmeg, almond. More bourbon notes after adding few drops of water. Vanilla, and some sweet creamy notes. More chocolate and coffee after a few sips.

    Palate: Very big arrival, oily and full body. Lots of nuts, nice bourbon sweetness, under a nice earthy smoky blanket. Bit salty, which is a good thing.

    Finish: Nutty, salty. Nice long smoky finish, pretty dry too. No bitterness.

    Balance: This is a very strong and bold whisky, from nose to palate to finish. Overall the palate is pretty good, and add to the nose nicely.

    Price: If you are paying it at launched price, like myself, this whisky is very good value.

    • Nose
      Starts with scorching pungent coal smoke, salt, sweaty rubber boots, mud, lots of peat, ashes and a hickory-like sweet or rather burnt cake ?. Later catchy crustaceans with lemon juice, tidal pools, hike through a rocky outcrop.
      Very modern and surprisingly chocolaty with water. Much peat smoke, farm in the rain, ferns, ashes, salt and saddle soap. Really fantastic.
    • Taste
      Lush smoldering, peat smoke, ashes, salt, mud, old stables, burned beef, bracken, Tabasco and sweet accents.
      Peat smoke with water, ashes, salt, herbal tinctures, old farm in the rain.
    • Finish
      Peat smoke, phenol, saddle soap, bracken, roasted chestnuts and dark chocolate end in a long finish.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Powerful intense Islay whisky
    • Nose
      this typically fat peat from Port Charlotte, slightly sour, sweet peat, vanilla. A great nose. Not tamer with water, maybe even mineral and a little bit of sea.
    • Taste
      strong, intense, sherry or wine barrels?
    • Finish
      peaty, strong, very nutty (there must have been any wine barrels)

    A tasting sample that i kept for quite sometime... its time to give it a try!
    • Nose
      Fruit bomb?! Fresh apple, pear, dark fruits. Follow by chalk, car interior polish, honey, sugar cane syrup. Wet interior, shoe rubber outsole, some dry coconut flakes. All these with peat smoke at the background. This smells exactly like the mini grocery behind my house! After a sip, new car tyre with some over ripe fruits.
    • Taste
      Wow, balance peat, earth, honey, tabacco, sweet fruits, vanilla, coal, rubber, little black pepper. Oily, tounge coating... suddenly red chili!
    • Finish
      Medium long, with ashes of mini grocery and some red chili! Oh and some black rubber bitterness.

      The feeling of going to the grocery behind my house.. without going there!

      I like this, Alot!
