  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Hadn't tasted this one in ages, it's still gorgeous. Way beyond basically all peated whisky released nowadays.
    • Nose
      Peat intertwined with leather and the fruitiness of peach and apple. Gingerbread and vanilla too.
    • Taste
      Peat, apple, gingerbread, peach, vanilla and nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Peat, apple, chocolate-coated gingerbread and peach.

  2. etwa77 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    a truly magnificent nose.. clean linen left to dry in the sea breeze.. dampen earth.. sweet and creamy.. faintly fruity and the smoke turns sour.. the taste was more minty than i would have liked and.. that’s about it for me.. i’m torn!
