33 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.67 points

  1. Seb.Whisky scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A whiskey that shines with a simplicity that suits him perfectly. A nice blend of Islay (s), I do not know which ones ... Probably a little Caol Ila, it's a favorite of Specialty Drinks. A good candidate to apprehend the rest of the range. (Whiskey Passion).
    • Nose
      Here is a well peated whiskey, iodized to perfection. Lemon. There is a sweetness, the whole is fat and goes straight to the point. The water will relax it, give vanilla, apple. Citrus peels.
    • Taste
      It's in the mouth that Peat will make sense. Always this lemon very present. As for the full proof, it is perfectly integrated, although it does not lack power. The water still offers these peels of oranges, mandarins, grapefruit.
    • Finish
      The peat becomes more vegetal, but it is lemon acidity that persists to preserve a nice freshness. Tobacco smoke.

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I know the minimalist style of the bottlenecks of Specialty Drinks, and I like it a lot! But when you choose to abandon the concept of chemical symbols to swing "Peat", I find it hyper reductive. So much to write: "Hey, guys, come on! Islay, it's not peat? What distilleries? We do not care, we've mixed big peat that stretches all over the island and we're going to rip you off curling the 60 ° ". I was not there at the marketing meeting, but find out why, that's what I imagined. So I had a pretty bad a priori on this keel. On the nose, peat very frank, half gourmet (meaty) and mineral (pebbles). Later, sweet malt. With water, more creamy, milk chocolate limit. On the palate, lively and powerful, but very good alcoholic integration. Then yellow fruits. Thick texture. Sweet and spicy after the first sip. With water, the beast is a little tamed, but the fruitiness persists, with an oily texture, almost viscous. Finishing, unctuous even, long and saline. Well it was actually! A super blended malt that makes appeal product for the rest of the range of these Islay single malts bottled cask strength.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

  3. wisekycourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, fresh peat, smell of meat, yellow fruits acid and a side iodine on the return.
    2nd:
    smoked ham!
    so iodine, salt, peat fat, meat meat, then fruit on citrus and not that, lemons and pears, it's really a good reference Q / P ratio!
    • Nose
      sweetness, roundness and a mix of flavors!
    • Taste
      fire, arrogance of alcohol, and perseverance of flavors
    • Finish
      monolithic but tenacious.

  7. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Molt is good, powerful and rich, at the same time, light and airy, such averaged Ayla, classy, ​​but somewhat impersonal, devoid of individuality, gravitating, IMHO, to Ardbeg and young Lagavulin, by the way, they took themselves in hand and did not become to break into exorbitant prices.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, saturated, smoky-peat, kirza, old fat, vegetable notes, chips, metallic shades.
    • Taste
      Powerful, light, smoke, peat, lemon peel, activated charcoal, scorched branches, pepper, light sweetness.
    • Finish
      Soft, warming, lemon peel, peat, burnt caramel, lemon pepper.

  8. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Extremely salty, peat fire, smoked fish, strong minerality and citrus zest. Later ashier but also sweeter after "charred" apple and herbaceous hay.
    • Taste
      Full onset of peat smoke and pungent salinity. But not clumsy or brutal but rather wonderfully subtle and incredibly harmonious. Over time becomes more ashen, again zitruszesten and rainy hay.
    • Finish
      Very long, peat smoke, ash, dark chocolate, salt and malted malt. Extremely complex and lively.

    Good refreshing dram!!
    • Nose
      Lemon and Iodine. A fresh and sour green apple. Vanilla sweet.
    • Taste
      A lot of citrus at the begin but very fresh and light. (velvet smooth). More peat in taste than expected from the nose. After the sour start and the peat you get some sweeter tones followed again with a sharper and hotter sourness. At the end drying out with more wood and a little salt. Some bitterness on the side.
    • Finish
      Medium finish, dry smoke and wood. Also the salt keeps hanging around for a good time.
