  7. Shane_IL scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This is quite an unconventional dram, lots of new notes here for me. Not exactly my cup of tea, but very interesting to sit on for a bit.
    • Nose
      Quite a unique nose. Caraway. Asparagus. Wet anise plants. Basil. Some underlying winey notes, tannins, grapes. Below that a layer of campbelltown herbal peat and some old BBQ fat. Some more traditional fruits (pears, canned pineapple) and leather. 
    • Taste
      Lots of sweet wood notes. Wood oils. Sandalwood. Woody vanilla. Maple (the less sweet grade B stuff). Red fruits. Light spices, like cinnamon mixed with sugar. Some dry tannins on the swallow, maybe also some cherry-menthol lozenges. 
    • Finish
      Long. French toast with sugar. Bitter berries. Woodspice. Slight hint of char or soot. Grape soda.

    An incredible finish! Very long and absolutely brilliant!
    (way better -unfortunately- than the nose)

  9. p4blo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    An interesting profile showing big potential of the distillery.
    • Nose
      Bonfire smoke comes first, a bit of wet hay and rotten meat follows shortly. After a while some notes of liquorice are countered by the fruitiness of pineapples, bananas and mangos. Quite complex.
    • Taste
      Rather mellow, sweet, with butter, vanilla pudding, white sugar, apricots and a tropical fruit salad. Slightly spicy.
    • Finish
      Long with peat smoke interplaying with the fruitiness. A lot of pepper.

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Once you've become acquainted to it, this is a really addictive dram. 88/89.
    • Nose
      Toffee and chocolate milk upfront, disguising the typical Campbeltown profile a bit but not for long. Also pepper and peat. Then blueberry, cherry, banana and after a minute also kaki fruit. When adding water also some dried date and nutmeg. A very pleasant, fantastically balanced smell.
    • Taste
      A bit of a struggle between the cask and the character of the spirit initially. Chocolate milk, blueberry, candied cherry, mango, peat, pepper, date, dried apricot and cranberry all fighting for their place. Some water or simply patience seems to make it more integrated, or it might be me becoming more used to this combination.
    • Finish
      Caramel, kaki, apricot, peat, chocolate and red pepper (the balls I mean).
