  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nice Oban, with some nice mixture of fruty and sweet notes together with saltiness. Could have been a little higher on Abv though.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Salty, a cooling barbecue, some smoke, prunes, tobacco, alcohol pretty much present.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Pretty strong, some pepper, salty, honey, some chocolate and prunes. Later on much softer, yet not watery or thin.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Still pretty strong, pepper, tobacco, licorice, middle long. Still salty as well.

      first fruity, ripe grapes, dried fruit, then dry spiciness, nuts, oak, salty aromas, very little smoke, slightly oily, multi-layered;

  8. abcmeuric scored this whisky 84 points Newbie

    On the nose, first raw fish and then a vanilla a little woody. The attack is frankly salty (oyster), then returns the same vanilla and a hint of citrus (mandarin) surprising but light enough. Less body, less malty than 14 years old. The finish allows the citrus fruit to grow but still in a salty register. Retro-olfaction is distinctly reminiscent of lump eggs.
    Very nice in its marine character, I would have liked a little more body for the alliance land-sea is more balanced, or a little more exuberance by pushing on citrus.

  9. domani scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very good single malt! Here dominates a fruity-sweet bitterness, which knows how to please. The Brennereicharaker this distillery is peculiar and knows (me) to inspire, an absolutely recommendable standard - 25.12.2016
    • Nose
      Wonderfully fruity and fresh as a fruitcake, mild and soft, the flavors rise, hazelnut, here I even find the smoke I'm looking for in the standard 14 years in vain, salty maritime, ripe white grapes, lemon, distinct sherry flavors, dates, soy spices
    • Taste
      Wonderfully sweet and fruity mixed with woody aromas, soft and mild, dried fruit, slightly dry, salty, oily, comes to an end the bitterness that lingers long but not unpleasant, reminiscent of bitter walnuts and Chinotto or Bitterino
    • Finish
      Lang
