  2. p4blo scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A rather unconventional dram, but if you're looking for Islay drams with classical sherry influences, keep looking.
    • Nose
      A rather dirty side of sherry with rotten fruits, old socks and sulphur dominating over the more usual notes of dried fruits, caramel and sea salt. Almost no peat smoke there.
    • Taste
      The taste is characterised by notes of dried plums, wood and spicy ginger. There is some slight smoky side. Very dry on the tongue, but the alcohol is masked pretty well.
    • Finish
      Medium long, dry, on smoke and wood with a gentle sweetness shining through.

    I smell sherry on the beach, sweet and malty, salty with cookies and a trace of eucalyptus.

    It tastes sweet but not too heavy, just as you'd expect it from an Oloroso cask matured whisky. Vanilla is a dominating flavor. Despite the 60% the alcohol is not overwhelming. I won't add water to this one. 

    The taste lingers for a loooong time. Quite dry and for the first time some wood notes. The eucalyptus is back and tickles the tongue. 

    All in all a great whisky that despite it's alcohol content of about 60% doesn't need water. Make sure to give it some time to breath and warm it with your hands.

    Very interesting cask influence, nice indeed. I just lack the underlying robustness of the Port Charlotte, which would make this a certainly great whisky. With the Bruichladdich spirit this is still a fine malt.
