  1. drkrylov scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Still THE BEST!!!
    • Nose
      Sea spray, peat smoke. Stings the back of the nose.
    • Taste
      Peaty dryness like gunpowder tea. As the palate develops, oily,
      grassy, and, in particular, salty notes emerge.
    • Finish
      Peat fire. Warming. A bear hug.

    dark amber color (unfortunately with dye)
    - very pleasant and intensely powerful combination of smoke and sherry
    - an absolute classic and a "top malt"
    - a must for an Islay lover
    - definitely justified for the 55-60€ at that time and also worth it, definitely grab the offer for less than 50€! , unfortunately history and with the jump to 75-80€ I really have to consider whether it will remain a candidate in my whisky bar... probably not...
    • Nose
      intense peat smoke, ham smoke, iodine, salt water, sweet sherry
    • Taste
      powerful, smoky attack, lots of sherry, mouth-filling, sweet, spicy oak on the palate, very intense and powerful and, above all, an extremely aromatic overall impression
    • Finish
      elegant, long-lasting finish; salty, peaty with an extremely long smoky warm aftertaste (for minutes!)
