  2. st7 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

     A nice marrige - not blended but matured together in a single cask - between Bowmore and Laphroaig with a little Caol Ila (lovechild) on top.

    A peaty yet complex dram.
    • Nose
      Lots of sweet fruit, heavy peat and gentle smoke. Also citrus and sweet licorice. Complex.
    • Taste
      Soft smoke and sweet fruits. Then the peat explode with lots of spices, malt and a little salt.
    • Finish
      Very long, with soft and gentle peat notes without bitterness. Smooth and still very sweet.
