  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Sloping whisky.
    • Nose
      without water:
      Nose: OK ... honest? He smells of fermented fruit, and not exactly positive. A little bit of hairspray.

      with water:
      the hairspray (solvent) is still there. The foul flavors are gone, it is a subtle but pleasant vanilla fruitiness to smell.
    • Taste
      without water:
      Fierce, what a start with about 48%. The mouth is completely closed.

      with water:
      tamed, but not tame. He could be only 8 years old. very violent with a lot of sharpness (a chilli-catch, there Talisker can pack), some fruit, some wood, but unfortunately not more.
    • Finish
      without water:
      when the shock in the mouth has dropped, first a bit of tart wood and then somehow some cheese with figs. I see, confused associations.

      with water:
      The finish remains almost like without water. The vanilla is a bit more present and a little wax and pear are also added. At the very end then a bit sour (again immature kiwi).
