  5. torstenB scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    This bottling doesn't offer huge complexity, but it offers a great balance. I think it is a bit underrated, and still offers value for money considering its moderate price increase. Consider to buy this instead of a expensive Port Ellen
    • Nose
      Green flavours, olives, kippers and maybe oysters, seeweed
    • Taste
      lemons, liquorice and plenty of aniseed
    • Finish
      smoky

  6. Cubey666 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Tasted at WTF2017 - August 2017

    take everything that is good on a standard Caol Ila 12, and double it. More taste, same amount of clean peat, and a nice kick of the alcohol. Simply splendid stuff. Enough said :)

  10. Eilean a' Cheo scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    amazing mouthfeel, what a transformation of flavours on the palate, love both the character and the complexity

    93
    • Nose
      maritime,oysters,linseed oil, grapefruits,freshly painted fishing boat,old coastal smoke
    • Taste
      sweeter than the nose, first dark chocolote, salt, mango and other sweet fruits and then smoke and then burnt herbs, all kind of coastal herbs thyme, oregano and then even touches of weed
    • Finish
      long with a sweet and sour taste like bergamot jam, and earl grey tea mixed with salinity and whiffs of smoke
