  1. Pyromann scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Slightly smoky sherry whisky, the sweetness of the board definitely dominates, and the smoke rather envelops it in a smoky haze and roughens. She is nice, but in direct comparison with Big Peat Xmas 2014, this one is one class lower. Against him is simpler and sometimes unnecessarily sharp.
    • Nose
      Artificial, caramel sweetness, tinged with sharpness and peppery roughness. Overall, it is rather sweeter.
    • Taste
      Sweetness like chocolate, sometimes like sherry. Dense, heavier in taste.
    • Finish
      Sweeter, faintly smoked. But smokiness and peat hold on for some time and pass into salt. Medium length.

    peaty, some smoke, some ashes, there is some sherry, but that fades away quickley. bitter notes, ABV does not really fit in well. finish too short. Not sure what happened there, started fine and finished not so well

    Not as beastly as the name suggests, more gentle and heavy smokers. However, the Carakter is idiosyncratic, unusual, but delicious. You do not have that often. I would be interested to know which distillery is behind it. I can hardly imagine Islay.
    • Nose
      Baconous smoke in the nose, sweet notes, rather subtle sherry, a touch of cardboard is also there, some cowshed, etas fruit. An unusual smoker, not too intense peat, rather a musty, musty.
    • Taste
      In the mouth quite salty, slightly bitter, woody, lighter fruit notes, surprisingly little sherry.
    • Finish
      The finish is then again peaty, ashen, slightly musty, a sweet sherry note is and tart oak notes, some leather and tobacco complete the whole.

  9. coldsun scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Great combination of spiced Speyside and peat! Flavor is smoky, peated, medicine (bandages), creosote, little bit glue and spicy (pepper, curry). Taste is rich, spirit of vine is sensible. Taste has notes of spices, vanilla, sweet fruits, grapes, currants and of course smoke, peat and medicine bandages. Finish keeps all elements of taste and is very stable and long.

  10. Dieter_W scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Price-performance ? Well, he does not have any age! Who reads Pedro Ximenez Finsish and expects a smoke sherry bomb will not come at his expense.
    • Nose
      Smoked bacon with lemon juice. Vanilla -Marzipan Confectionery Mango -Kiwi Mandarin Oranges -Hungberries
    • Taste
      nice creamy and oily on the tongue Sweetness and dryness alternate. But the sweetness then wins clearly. The alcohol is barely noticeable, the age is difficult to estimate. But beautiful discreet wood is felt.
    • Finish
      Dry medium long
