4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.50 points
- The nose starts off quite versatile, with a mix of fruitiness and peat, in taste it gets more one-dimensional. Besides that is is a very hefty experience, maybe a little too much. Alcohol not completely integrated, hence: bottled too quick. Some more years of maturation would have been better.
Fruity, some peat, moisterous autumn forest, earthy. Some fake leather, prunes. Later on some citrus and floral notes.
Pretty powerful, (too) intense, pepper. Sal ammoniac, licorice. Some earthy notes, sweetness.
Very powerful still, intense, some bitter smoke. Woodsmoke. Middle long. Ash.
