  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    H2H with the 2005-2015 DE.

    2002-2013: balance is the word here. A little more sherried notes, a little less peat and little more fruitiness.
    2005-2015: a little more spiciness and peat and therefore a little more exciting.

    Both are superb quality and the consistency is quite remarkable. The difference is subtle. Though I have a slight preference for the 2002. It just all seems to be there. Balanced, smooth, complete. The 2005 is a little more fierce.
    • Nose
      Burnt wood, spices, red fruits and (compared to other releases) a little more peat which gives hints of a campfire.
    • Taste
      Punchy arrival, more alcoholic. I get some tropical influences such as coconut and mango and it’s quite savory.
    • Finish
      Quite spicy, salty, peaty with a fruit bowl. Alcohol didn’t integrate as well as with batch 2002.
