  1. serejja scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I kinda don't understand how this got 91+ rating. It's a good whisky from an iconic distillery, no doubt. But this one is far from perfect.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Sour and bitter notes are well felt, but are of just the right amount. Peppery and salty, the peat is very rounded at this point and isn't the primary feature at all. But adds nice to overall picture
    • Taste
      89 89
      Seems slightly more aggressive and peppery compared to 21 y.o (WBID: 13842). Now the bitterness is really felt and I can't say it makes the dram better.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Salty, peppery, peaty and bitter. After a bit the bitterness is gone and mostly peat and dust left.
