  3. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 3797 bottles
    A specially selected 10 cask batch from a single Island distillery, this highlights the best of the West – “ship’s haven”, Fascadale lies on the north-west point of the rugged, and timeless, Ardnamurchan peninsula. Its hidden, pebbled beach looks West and North towards the islands of Eigg, Rum, Muck and Skye. Whispered tales of smuggling abound…

  4. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    undisclosed Talisker

  5. Master Quill did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Supposed to be Talisker

  6. Feusi scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

  7. alectron scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      granite saw dust +/o, peat o, salt/brine o, slightly acidic/sour in the nose (reminds me of a chemistry gas experiment in school, but can't remember the name of the gas, not chloride oxide, but close ), vanilla o. (84)

      Later: fruity o, peppered cucumber slices (wtf ?) -. (86)
    • Taste
      peat, pepper, slightly starch-y, and a few sour notes again (84)
    • Finish
      drifting into salty savoury mouthfeel with a touch of citrus, neat.(86)

    Rumours tells it is a Talisker, seems to be a lot more mild than the ob version.
    Anyway, damn good whisky.
    • Nose
      Mild, vanilla and peat, a surprising pear sweetness develops.
    • Taste
      Big vanilla sweetness mixed with peat.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy(chili and cayenne), woody, ashes in the end.
