  1. filleadh mhòr scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    a quiet beauty not many people may have the senses for. never shouting. no need for. but also no organ for. quiet, complex, a certain depth, always balanced. falling out of the time.
    • Nose
      Campbeltown! some coal smoke from far away, a little rubber, old stored apples and oranges, sandalwood, sandalwoodoil
    • Taste
      superb. I don't feel any motivation right now for detecting flavors here. rather a hesitation. and it would be anyways difficult because everything is interwoven not densely but tenderly. satisfying even or especially from this distance kept.  
    • Finish
      a bit short but fitting into this concept of a beauty crossing your way, which is already gone once you happen to realize the chance meeting. you can't get hold of it.

    I like it very much.
    • Nose
      fresh, malty, bright fruits, slightly maritime.
    • Taste
      Intensely strong, maritime, salty, a hint of peat.
    • Finish
      again a bit salty, some oak. Peat is definitely here.

  8. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    One tastes the origin: Campbeltown. And yet he stands out clearly from the cousin Springbank and knows how to please quite independently.
    • Nose
      If one had to describe the nose with a temperature indication, it would be a "very warm" nose.
      Malty, slightly salty, but at the same time orange and apricots are already to be found.
    • Taste
      Fruity-sweet with milk chocolate, marzipan and Christmas spices.
    • Finish
      In the finish there are echoes of so many Springbank bottling, but without the beautiful strong fruity saltiness at the end.
