  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    arrives quite intensely, not a starter dram. compared to its syrah counterpart this one is less of an explosion and offers more soft flowing red fruit.

  4. kaasklop scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Strong, rich, peaty whisky. Due to its strong alcohol it is wise to open the bottle and leave the cork of for a week, it will take off the sharp edges. Great whisky, a bit pricey
    • Nose
      Smoke at first, the remains of a smoldering campfire, old wood, a sweet balsamic vinigar and an alcoholic desinfect.
    • Taste
      Wow, a punchy, full and rich taste containing smoked barly, well baked bread crust, crude oil, ginger and some bitter lemon. The influence of the wine cask clearly results in a strong presence of sweet grapes, i like it.
    • Finish
      This strong whisky has a long finish.

  6. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    overall extremely demanding
    • Nose
      violently. Alcohol, directly behind it typical Port Charlotte straw, damp and smoldering. Burnt gum followed by fresh lemon and berry notes (blueberries). Striking herbs (I can not assign)
    • Taste
      again violently. Extremely dense and oily, pressing on the tongue. Dark nut chocolate, strong wood character and only very distant wine notes. Very mineral, thus clearly maritime Islay character.
    • Finish
      Peppery spices and again a bitter citrus (rather grapefruit)

  8. aphex scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Another beast from Port Charlotte. Strong and very tasty.
    • Nose
      Smoked bacon, rubber, diesel oil, burnt pine and bonfire.
    • Taste
      Punchy and smoky. Thick. BBQ sauce with salted caramel and spices. Water just tames the beast.
    • Finish
      Long. Lingering smoke and spices on the palate. Salty and slightly ashy.
