  1. Alexandr_Zhurov did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Not typical peat whisky, not like Ailovsky profile, absolutely not an amateur.
    • Nose
      Some kind of oil, dry, not powerful, earthy, soot, soot, very mineral, there is no sensation of smoke like from a fire, maybe coals, there is fruit sweetness, iodine.
    • Taste
      Smoky, burning, sweet, a little sea, iodine, there is the influence of a barrel, some kind of ointment finol,
    • Finish
      Simple sweetish but long lasting.

  2. The_Osprey scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Arran Machrie Moor peated cask strength second edition 58.2%. Very pale. Aroma is spiritous and muted, slight dried banana chips and seared apple. A bit like some home-oaked spirits I've nosed. Taste is assertive, boozy, spiritous, the flavours are a bit too concentrated and it's coming across a bit hot and dense I'd say. Floral linger. Lacking complexity as a result of the strength but perfectly nice. (Score: 75) With water there's a plasticky note in aroma and taste becomes a little more biscuity. Opens up a lot more complexity. The peat is soft and lingering. The middle is juicy with faint tropical fruits. This one really took water well. (Score: 82)

    • Finish
      87 87
      Warms, knits, oak, rolls in waves, long, smoked, malt, as if after fish or lard, a feeling in the mouth, raisins, melon, pinches.

  4. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Delicious, cheeky, smoky young malt. He drinks well at his fortress.
    • Nose
      Perfumery and floral, with plant (needles, foliage) and sea (iodine, salt, algae) notes, with a small content of coal and pepper.
    • Taste
      Slightly harsh, sweet-smoked, in addition slightly salty, peppery and oaky.
    • Finish
      Medium duration, buttery, with hints of salt, pepper, iodine and smoked fish.

    A nice suprise to me, I enjoyed it's refined mild and somewhat flowery peat.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Mild and flowery peat. Subtle fruits (pear) and vanilla. A unique soft peaty profile I never encountered before!
    • Taste
      86 86
      Slightly more peat with a creamy mouth feel. Citrus fruits vanilla, espresso, sweet flowers and a mineral/briny edge.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Mild peat, with citrus fruits, vanilla and green olives. Just that, nice but no further development.
