  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    sensation of dry peat, smoke, wood, meat juice, citrus with lemon and a little vanilla and butterscotch.
    slightly peppery
    mouth:
    very oily, cold, slightly liquorice smoke, peppery spices, smoked
    caramel, slightly salted meat, well-grilled bacon, made wine, a touch of cooking broth, and herbs, dry seaweed!
    return of bitterness with herbs and stones
    final:
    peppery, earthy, smoky, woody, lemony and cooked zest, cooked wine, a little humus, for a fairly long finish even if monolithic.
