Whisky Reviews for Classic of Islay Vintage 2013 JW

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.15 points

  1. Kaltduscher scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The whisky you notice his young age but clearly.
    • Nose
      Powerful. Smoke bomb. Campfire smoke. Sea air. Salt. Seaweed. Traces of ripe banana. Acacia honey. Strong spices. Metallic.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly mild start, then stronger. Smoky. Salty. Honey. Vanilla. Malt. Metallic.
    • Finish
      Long. Powerful. Campfire smoke. Black pepper. Again, a metallic undertone.

  2. DunklerRabe scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A well rounded dram whether you like to add water or not. A longer finish with a bit more oak would have been nice. Some people want to tell you that this is a Lagavulin and yes, sometimes you get the impression that is is similar to a Lagavulin. But I wouldn't bet on it for a long time yet.
    Take it as a typical Islay malt, nicely matured in a sherry cask for a very reasonable price.
    • Nose
      Peat smoke develops after a moment with light strawberry behind it. Even though it has a nice color it is not that far on the sherry side. You feel the alcohol but it is rather mild in the nose for 56,9%.
      With added water you get hints of banana and lose a bit of the smoke.
    • Taste
      Again, mild for the alcohol content. You get a smoky, sweet sherry fruityness.
    • Finish
      Short with almost no sign of oak.
