  1. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Atypical HP. Too smoky for an 18 year release, but otherwise very interesting and harmonious.
    • Nose
      Restrained, berry-smoky, with hints of spicy spices, slightly iodine marine.
    • Taste
      Lightly smoked, peppery, with nutty bitterness and malt tones.
    • Finish
      Long enough, moderately smoked, berry, with echoes of pepper, apple peel and oak.

    Nose: That's how whisky smells without anything! Clear mountain air in the alcohol, oak and lots of flowers in the meadow. Above, honey scent. A little water later brought a - I think - wonderful note just flowering ... yes what .... flowers stop, I do not know by name. But even the "whisky" (oak) smell, which is unadulterated strong, remains clearly ahead. Taste: Nice start. Right between soft and spicy, strong, but not too strong. Very nice warming, light sweetness, beautifully integrated oak. It is present, but comes over completely calmly. The thing once properly hunted over the entire oral mucous membrane, it leaves a delicious, smoky and voluminous floral taste, the honey sweetness is still noticeable. So I imagine a whisky when I explain to someone the difference between OA with 43% average and UA with a little more momentum in the howitzer. I do not know how much water it can tolerate, but certainly a lot.
    I would not call him "easy-drinking". This is a whisky for longer enjoyment, equally well suited for experiments (dropwise). The more water, the more corners and edges. He came at first smooth, but is becoming more interesting the more you change him. One or two for the evening, no one is to "pull", here is "busy" announced. echo:
    At first I thought "oh .. short". But he really needs the round trip in the mouth and water ... then the resonance is long and wonderfully woody, in a positive sense. (Anam na h-Alba)
