    Gigantic price-performance ratio.
    Soft aroma.
    Reminds of Uigedail or Corryvreckan.

    A Coal Ila should be in it, which has a wonderful "oldschool" Sherrynote, which becomes more intense with the addition of water.

    PS: A new batch under the same label is available, which unfortunately can not reach the old batch. I get 89 points for the first batch. The second batch gets 83 points.

    Islay. Presumably stored in a refill barrel, it has added more spice and oak as fruit and sweetness, but if you give it some time and water, he knows how to please with his direct way.
    • Nose
      Strong, phenolic smoke, moist wood, first-aid kit and citrus fruits. Clearly noticeable alcohol. With some water, sweeter and more fruity with plums, lemons and vanilla from the barrels. Maritime with some salt, moldy ship planks and tarred rope.
    • Taste
      Wood smoke, ash, spicy oak, vanilla and tobacco. Not very complex, but strong and strong with the unadulterated character of a young Islay malts. A metallic note indicates the youth of the Malts, in connection with the strong smoke and a touch of iodine, this is not a KO criterion.
    • Finish
      Medium long, smoky and warm. Dark chocolate and iced coffee with vanilla ice cream.
