  1. vmp scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    Superb stuff. Peat combines well with paul john's fruity spirit. Slightly medicinal smoke and tropical fruits on the nose. That continues on the palate

    An extremely funky one. Quite like it.
    • Nose
      Ripe mango, cheese, very farmy, I got urine, horse shxx (not in a disgusting way), rotten tomato
    • Taste
      Not bad, still a lot of mango and pineapple, it is burning in your mouth
    • Finish
      Long and sweet, mints, oak dryness, tobacco

  6. pianoman scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Campfire smoke, iodine, lemon, unripe banana. Horse stable, leather saddle, slightly rancid butter. Wild grasses.

      mineral peat and citrus - malt - floral traces of mint, a very pleasant nose

      peat then alcohol, spices and cereals quite sweet, bitter fruits
    • Finish
      sweet medium finish between peat and fruits

  8. boy_genius_ck scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    spicier nose compared to the Paul John Bold, fuller flavored but lacks the intense metallic and minerally notes of the Bold. fruitier, deeper and darker and still very good

    brilliant stuff, gonna get me a bottle
    • Nose
      very peaty, very laphroaigish, bandages and ointments, iodine,
      menthol, quite some eucalyptus. theres a wee fruitiness behind all that but I cannot really pin it down. if you wait long enough you may find some soot and ashes.
    • Taste
      medium sweet arrival with lots of smoke and malt candy. a wonderful balance between smoke, fruit and malt. still this beautiful eucalyptus. water not needed
    • Finish
      relatively long, warm and satisfying
