  1. helmutgw scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Q: after whisky base - definition "pale straw" N: smoke - sweetness - fruit: harmoniously connected. Alcohol 60.3% and yet inconspicuous.
    + H2O: more fruit. G: Whoa! Mouth-filling taste explosion! The alcohol causes a short-term feeling of dulling in the mouth. He can also prevail at 8 Beaufort! Smoke and alcohol dominate, but after a short delay, fruit and grains emerge.
    + H2O: everything a bit more civilized: a round thing that has something of gauze with orange and blackthorn. The body is according to the dram: flows heavily oily from the glass and makes beautiful windows. A: The thing that would not leave!
    Well, you can pack Islay whiskys with a modern profile.

    Nose makes
    a huge promise of peat, smoke, tobacco smoke, freshness and pure Islay
    expressions. Taste is less promising than nose, but it is still very pleasant.

    Finish is the weakest point, it`s rather short, salty and smoky, but
    at the end it`s unfortunately little bitter, not the way I would like it to be.
