  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Dominant Virgin Oak - something for American Bourbons fnas, but unfortunately not for me
    • Nose
      Sour caramel, violet soap, prominent alcoholic strength, subtle smoky notes - with water we he more accessible and calls milk chocolate and herbs to light
    • Taste
      Caramel, spicy herbs, milk chocolate and roasted aromas
    • Finish
      sour, spicy, spicy and short

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I loved ! Enthusiasm 5/5 Whisky n ° 1455
    • Nose
      Chocolate malt with a maritime note. Burnt wood. A hyper atypical but tasty combination of marshmallows and solvent (bourbon type). Beautiful vanilla.
    • Taste
      Soft, fruity. The peat is forgotten. Not so spicy. Round and mature.
    • Finish
      Very long, fruity (ripe peach), subtly bitter. Peaty aftertaste.

  4. hs305 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    [June, 2016]  I had this dram during a "Feis Ile 2016" tasting at Bonn.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 80.  I took no detailed notes as this whisky did not interest me.

  5. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty, very tasty ... to rest but not enough. So to 80, 90 ¬ I could go along already ... 55GBP were for Feis Isle a very fair issue price, current secondary market prices should not pay.
    • Nose
      dry, sawdust, caramel, very light smoke, very cozy or closed, -> there must be pure water: wood and caramel are stronger, milk chocolate, a little burned, a little peppery and yes, a mild brandy note
    • Taste
      very sweet, a lot of caramel and chocolate, burned cocoa macaroons, then when you "chew" slowly kräutriger and bitter, herbal liqueur, cough syrup - mjam
    • Finish
      long, warm and tasty, pepper, salt liquorice, herbal bitters

  6. Goethe scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Another underdeveloped Feis Ile 2016 expression. This one is starting very promising on the nose but the palate is too hot. The alcohol is distinctively present.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 6/10
    • Nose
      Sweet smoke. A pleasant mix of oak and oloroso. Fruits, caramel, some spices, rum chocolate.
    • Taste
      Sherry, very dry oak, very spicy, some fruits, pepper, smoke, some herbs.
    • Finish
      Long. Chocolate and oak.

  8. rottendon scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    In terms of taste, he really enjoyed all the people involved in a tasting, the herbal notes were more reminiscent of mint, but the nose is already scary ...

  9. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Definitely the best PLV of Feis Ile Bottlings. For £ 55 you get (got) a really well made Bowmore.
    • Nose
      It starts fruity with a distinct Sherrynote, light campfire smoke mixed with grated lemon zest, I also find a floral note that reminds me a little of the violets of the older Bowmores, but not intrusive, it is always a fresh undertone, old leather, and also clearly oak, salsify, the two barrel types make an interesting interaction, ok that's definitely the Bowmorefeilchen, even chocolate or Lumumba, after the first sip, the fruit note is really intense and sweet, a bit artificial as chewing gum
    • Taste
      creamy onset, with chocolate, sherry, intense, fruity, dark fruits, sweet, here too a small violet, then again the oak, it is dry and spicy, barely noticeable smoke, the back comes out a little more clearly
    • Finish
      The finish is rather short, fruity sweetness, a little oak, slightly nutty, he quickly invites to the next sip

  10. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Hmm, the nose is honestly getting used to, the rest quite appealing. Comes to me very "Indian", in the direction of the peated Paul John.
    • Nose
      Very much fruit, also rather acidic and then a lot of oak, spice cupboard and later some caramel, vanilla pudding.
    • Taste
      Very sweet, a little fruit, many spices, pepper, caramel and, for the first time, peat.
    • Finish
      Here, the whisky is nice peaty, first some pepper, peat and oak, then later a little caramel and salt to the smoky aromas and the austere oak.
