  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: We’re in refill city, 3rd use probably. Theres vibrancy to be had though, soft but luscious [dried] fruity/floral fragrances, farmy, buttery peat, thick-moist liquorice and yeasty grasses. Not overly complex but sound.
    T: Works neat, but a drop of water is preferable. A peppery/vibrant but controlled arrival of a creamy, oily, drying grain with a vibrant bitter=sour liquorice which then heads straight to a super-dry, salty, grassy/heathery barley cul-de-sac. Theres is however an unexpected and spritely reprise producing a line of [dried] fruity vanilla that carries into the finish. Becomes hard work after a while, the dry astringency becoming heavy work over time. 5cl is more than enough for me.
    F: A short, dry, vanilla, bitter lemon, oaky grapefruit, chalky finish. It would be quite cutting if it weren’t so dry.
    C: Nose is best, followed by the arrival. The more it goes on, the more it acknowledges its sluggish cask predisposition. Its often more Speyside in style than islay although that dry saltiness doesn’t betray its terroir.
