    Reviews here cant be honest
    In a blind tasting this would have 80 points. People are influenced by age Statement and price.
    A mediocre, non peated one, tasting 15 year old, not 45....

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very sedate, elegant Islay Malt, which lacks oomph and character, but at the same time you have to give it time so that the full aroma unfolds. The finish could also be significantly more concise / longer.
    • Nose
      Camphor, a little lavender, green tea, very dry, old algae, nice leather, fine cocoa, marzipan, herb honey, heather grass, very elegant salt and pepper, apricot and lychee later, a tick of grapefruit, a little red apple too, later also nice old tobacco and oak
    • Taste
      Very floury apple, earl gray, camphor, cardamom, nutmeg, salt and pepper, beautiful old oak, but elegant, rosemary and tick fennel, grapefruit, tick pineapple, heather grass, nice crispy malt, algae, creamy, cocoa
    • Finish
      Heather grass, lime peel, grapefruit peel, green tea, tick salt, medium length

    • Nose
      Very nice and quite elegant. Tropical fruits to start with, such as fresh pineapples, mangos and passionfruit. Nougat. Honey. There’s lime too. A little bit of oak and red apple peels.
    • Taste
      Red apples and oranges. Overripe bananas and mangos. Honey as well. A hint of smoke in the very back. Oak and spices, such as crushed black pepper, cinnamon and a pinch of cloves.
    • Finish
      Mid-long to long and it’s a bit drying. A trace of smoke. Apples, honey and mint.
