      Wide. Pungent. There's a mix of sweet and sour here, with a touch of smoke and herbal peat.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very salty. Smoke. Grass. Not bad, but not very cohesive. All over the place with water.
    • Finish

      Long, but not impressive. As with a lot of these high proofed Rare Malts from "lesser" distilleries, they are pretty good, very intellectual, but not very enjoyable, and therefore not something I would reach for often.

  8. pianoman scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Beeswax, yellow apples, dried apricots. Fog, wet autumn leaves. Dandelion. Camomile tea. A touch of coconut milk.
    • Taste
      Oily, spicy. Butter biscuits, black pepper, a little chili. Olive oil. Baked pumpkin with caramelized walnuts and some sage.

  9. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Wonderfully heavy sooty sweetness, metallic accents, freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt, subtle herbal tones, ferns and increasingly honey-king. Typical inverness style. With water: saltier, noticeably citrus-toned and grassy. Later again honey.
    • Taste
      Extremely oily onset, waxy aromas, honey-like sweetness, salt, some soot, metallic accents, oak and earthy ginger note. In the background lemon juice and grass.
    • Finish
      Medium. Honey-coated nuts, metallic aromas, salt, grassy accents and hints of valerian and cough syrup.

  10. Allandale scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Body: Dry, firm chewiness.
    • Nose
      Vegetal. Peppery. Aromatic.
    • Taste
      Flavor development. Medium dry. Sooty. Smoky oaky. Sappy. Orange pith and zest.
    • Finish
      Surprisingly lively, spicy. Faintly medicinal.
