  1. Totoro scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Less heavily – and advantageously – sherried than some of its 2004 predecessors in the SV CS line, but very good in its own right, with more space for the smoke. Uncompromisingly herbal and chock-full of clove aroma, like the 10 y.o. OB on steroids.

      Shoe Polish and dirty Smoke, black Soy Sauce, BBQ Crust maybe a little burnt, then some oranges all tohgether thrown into an oily Northsea Harbour.

      Cane Sugar, Cinammon, lots of typical spicy Sherrynotes, the Wood is a tad Bitter, Nuts follow
    • Finish

      earthy and warm´and agaion a tad bitter, with time the bitteness becomes a little more dominant, then caramell and Citrus appear to make a good Final. That's a Beast!

  4. Torfding scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Actually round and ripe, and yet this barrel loses compared to many other barrels of the series, especially against the 2004er.
    With water, it will be little different, but overall loses the Ledaig but.
    • Nose
      grilled greasy ash from the grill and a little smelly plastic, slightly sour red fruits, raisins, a little oriental (spices), warm
    • Taste
      the leathery creeps sweetly over the lips and it stays sweet; At first it tastes like a short circuit and the smoke stays a bit strange and bittersweet later on, a bit medical, hard gum, warm and pleasant, a bit tingling and malty as well as a little salt and damp cardboard in the background
    • Finish
      medium to long (especially in reverberation), slightly tingling with pleasant smoke, mild pepper, oak

    The sourness and the mustiness makes this one tricky to drink. Nice dram though.
    • Nose
      Peat, smoke, but when you nose past it you can pick up some fruitiness and some sour smell.
    • Taste
      Iodine pops up.The high ABV creates a little burn. The peat is unmistakable there, but also that old cardboard boxes.

      On the tongue it gets nicely thick and oily.
    • Finish
      Medium long
