  1. Noname_Drinker scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Excellent for the price. This bottle is by far one of my favorites since my journey of whisky in 2018. By comparing to other Islay whiskies, this whisky makes you feel like you are on the sea shore (comparing to the middle of the sea with a storm).
    • Nose

      When you open the bottle, you can immediately smell the peaty smoke (particularly strong on the cork).

      For the nosing, intense peaty smoke (but pleasant), sherry, ash, charcoal, smell from the sea. After a minute or so, there are more flavors coming out, e.g., "smoky" sweetness, iodine, wood with sea water. The smoke sharpness maintains even after 15 minutes.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Feels much higher than 43% ABV. Strong oakiness first hits. Then, saltiness, dark chocolate, sherry, dried fruit, and the reminiscent feeling of sea shore.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Very long finish, have the feeling of smokiness, wood, ash in the mouth for a long time.
