  3. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very nice dram for a 14 year old, thanks Henri for the sample.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Without a drop of water several points less but with a drop it opens up and gives a lot to discover in the nose. The peat gets less sharp too.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Little sharp but in the mouth also lots to discover, some allready wrote about it so no need for me to ad more.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long finish but here the peat rules. Further sweet also.

    Special thanks to whiskyCon for the sample.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Very bright, with peat smoke and tropical fruits being the main characters here. I got some feeling that it's going to be soapy/perfume-y on the palate with this nose, I hope I'm wrong. Some child used antibiotic syrup, sharp vanilla extract,
    • Taste
      75 75
      Candy sweetness and juicy fruitiness, but it does not translate into a pleasant palate. Again the antibiotic syrup, which is not pleasant to me. Some bitterness as well.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Bit tarry and ashy, with some bitterness. Pretty long finish which is unlucky in this case.

  6. Jackson05 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    From a 2 oz sample

    N: Tarry peat, citrus, vinegar, licorice root

    P: sweet peat, tar, iodine, Apple and pear.

    F: Mentol, mint, tar, barrel char, long

    Notes: a young beast but I love the whole tarry, cooling mentol thing going on. I stay with my original 88/100

    • Nose
      Peat, lime, pear, tangerine and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Peat, apple, spice and caramel. Water releases some liquorice.
    • Finish
      Peat, apple, caramel and orange.
