  1. whisky313 scored this whisky 83 points Specialist

    "Young Laphroaig gives the typical peat punch of the island, whereas mature malts from Caol Ila, Bowmore, and Ardbeg distilleries provide smoothness and body. The cherry on top is a little dash of the extremely rare Port Ellen distillery adding a great deal of complexity. Islay Whisky at its best!"

    First of all to the color: "White wine" does not really hit it, because the color is even brighter. Rarely had such a "colorless" whiskey in the glass. Otherwise, the malt is well done, the peat smoke is a bit too dominant. Here are just missing a few other flavors, only smoke is too little.
    • Nose
      Strong, salty smoke. Slightly pungent and alcoholic.
    • Taste
      On the tongue it also shows a distinct smoky note, but here is a little less intense than in the nose. Slightly fruity. The salt remains, some ammonia and tar is added. Drying and thinning.
    • Finish
      What remains is dry peat smoke.
