  1. spooky scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Please carefully experiment with water (because of possible "disintegration")! The 63% alcohol by volume are quite well integrated! I would imagine that enjoying this whisky should be a real pleasure considering the forthcoming winter for Islay fans!Ahoi … Vikings!!
    …. here’s a dram for you!!! Skål!
    • Nose
      "peat smoky sea air on a cool morning on Islay" (for those who's like: "GORGEOUS"), iodine, sherry flavors, spicy wild honey.
      With water added: Brandy Beans in dark chocolate, ripe pears ("muddy fruit"), something slightly acidic, but not disruptive
    • Taste
      billowing violently Peat smoke, pleasantly sweet, porridge ("Scott's Porage Oats"), yeast fermented washback flavors, forest honey-sweetness, dried apricot, clove (very discreet). With water: become oily (reminds of Cognac), cold charcoal, becoming dry
    • Finish
      long warming spicy and dry aftertaste accompanied by peat, smoke, spicy and fruity aromas.
      With water added: smoke of charcoal

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A perfect example of a combination of sherry and ale, a very rich and deep aroma, a viscous and thick taste and spicy light finish, an excellent balance, a drink is incredible, recalls Guess in his best years, but sleeker and denser.
    • Nose
      Clear, dry, Ayla, as it is - smoke, peat, juicy, soft, gutalin, lemon slice in tea, polish, roasted nuts, new leather goods, new leather shoes, popcorn, fried seeds, smoked bacon, halva, charcoal, sweet raisins in the background, prunes, new car, smoked boards.
    • Taste
      Powerful, saturated, smoke and peat mixed with sweet creamy and dried fruit notes, pepper wave, cinnamon, burnt rusks, metallic sour, burnt match heads, velvet beer, caramel, lapsang suhong, resin shades.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, ginger, prunes, grilled caramel, fried nuts, oak, furniture varnish.
