Whisky Reviews for Breath of the Isles 1992 AD

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.25 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The nose was stunning, the rest couldn't quite reach that high level. I still enjoyed it quite much.
    • Nose
      Very briny and seaweed-y, or shall I call it umami? The smoke is quite dirty, oily. Then, there is moss, tobacco, seaweed, wood (as in Lapsang Souchong), peach and mango. I like this style: dirty, sooty and fruity.
    • Taste
      Rather dry actually, quite some ginger involved, next to the pepper. Further, there is a more toned down peat smoke, tobacco, brine, apricot, and lemon.
    • Finish
      Moderately long, still quite dry, with tobacco again, peat, vanilla, pepper and salt.

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 309 bottles from cask 3203

    Although we cannot name this distillery, this example will quickly bring back memories if you have visited, and fire the imagination if you haven’t. Pale gold in colour, from a refill American hogshead, this has a wonderful beading – big and long lasting. The nose is all about “dirty fragrance”. Bog myrtle, out on the moor, sea tangle and then lollipops. The initial peat and exhaust smoke is soon replaced by sweetness while the addition of water heightens the senses and brings out bath salts. On the palate, a lovely thick mouthfeel, much sweeter than expected with a lingering peaty smoke and kick of chilli pepper in the finish. An outdoor whisky to be savoured indoors.

  3. Malt Hans scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Smoky and tary aroma, malt, vanilla, nutmeg,

    lime and green apple. Marzipan sweet taste, smoke, pepper, ginger,

    eucalyptus, lemon zest, lime, malt and herbs. Long, peaty, spicy and

    malty end.
