Whisky Reviews for Islay Grinn 06-year-old W&D

  1. fritzbrause scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Stunning sweet nose with lots of fruity aromas. Hidden in the very back peaty notes are hidden. Giving it some time, the smoke and peat comes out a bit more. 

    Salt and fruits struggeling on the palate. Wow! What a mixture. After fruity sweetness a big salty peat and smoke note comes thru. GREAT. Heavy mixture, but beautifully balanced. This is only 6 years old? No hints of new spirit aromas ...

    Thie finish is very lingering and long. The sweet and peat aromas leave you satisfied for a long time ... 

    I am a not fan of "finished" whiskies, but when it is so well balanced like this one, i say YES!
