    A really good Islay whisky.
    • Nose
      more clearly and (if there is such a thing) fresh peat smoke, slightly alcohol, then wood
    • Taste
      slightly oily, dominant smoke, noticeable malt spiciness, peppery spiciness, fruits
    • Finish
      quite short, fading taste a bit like ash

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Still a very decent standard bottling.
    • Nose
      Peat, dark chocolate, lime, peach, salt and a whiff of a horse stable. Nice balance.
    • Taste
      Peat, sweet lime, chocolate and smoked cod. A little salt & pepper and a whiff of ammonia. A bit too diluted in the long run.
    • Finish
      Mainly peat with some spice, not so much of the fruitiness that is quite prominent in the nose.
