  1. Waykid scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    These old grains certainly have their virtues though in my experience they are a bit challenging by the optimal time-water-ratio. A very nice one in it's league, though the potential depths of a malt remain unseen here.
    • Nose
      Really heavy initial alcohol: both needs and takes quite a lot of water. Mildly smoky, some salmiak and marzipan. Fresh, rawish apple, smoky toffee. With time rounds up nicely and the smoke grows stronger.
    • Taste
      Soft and salmiak-malty. Quite sweet & tender. Mild mocha, graininess, some cereals and syrup & honey, savoury mussels. Beautiful though initially a bit nippy and then the flavours tend to get a bit smallish and watery..
    • Finish
      Shortish but pleasant, savoury-malty.
