  1. Northern&Isles scored this whisky 99 points Expert Senior

    Totally delicious and very old great inchgower.
    Maybe not typical of the distillate, but otherwise unbelievable.
    Wild, rough, gruff, extremely intense and full-bodied. A punch from a malt.
    Ultimately even balanced and balanced in all its enormous splendor.
    At the same time fruits, lots of oak influence, spices and spices, vanilla, not too much tannins, no significant bitterness.
    In addition something so dirty like machinery and motor oil, more flavors in this direction, also decidedly something sea flavors like salt, ozone, stiff breeze.
    Certainly a malt for connoisseurs, machos, advanced and connoisseurs.
    Nothing for beginners or warm showers.
    It's fantastic.

    Dark honey, vanilla, coffee with caramel biscuits, chocolate crumble, vinous sweetness, oak on the finish. Had a sherry barrel suspected and no bourbon cask but nice to see what can come from a bourbon barrel after over 30 years. However, one must say that the old age is barely noticeable - only the strong oak in the finish suggests something. Nevertheless, a damn good malt where you can discover a lot.
