helmutgw gave this whisky 90 points

F: nach Whiskybase - Definition "blasses Stroh"

N: Rauch - Süße - Frucht: harmonisch verbunden. Alkohol 60,3% und trotzdem unauffällig.
+H2O: mehr Frucht.
G: Whoa! Mundfüllende Geschmacksexplosion! Durch den Alkohol entsteht kurzzeitig ein stumpfes Gefühl im Mund. Der kann sich auch bei 8 Beaufort durchsetzen!
Rauch und Alkohol dominieren, doch nach kurzer Verzögerung kommen Frucht und Getreide zum Vorschein.
+H2O: alles etwas zivilisierter: eine runde Sache, die etwas von Mullbinden mit Orange und Schlehe hat.
Der Körper ist dem Dram gemäß: fließt schwer ölig vom Glas und macht schöne Fenster.
A: The thing that wouldn't leave!

Tja, da können Islay - Whiskies mit modernem Profil einpacken.

Lafroy gave this whisky 87 points

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.
