    Who likes heavy and dirty malts, gets his money's worth
    • Nose
      90 90
      Very rich nose, sweet and full but also very salty at the same time, charcoal, ashy cold smoke, smoked meat, tobacco, plums, some perfume, oil, workshop
    • Taste
      90 90
      creamy fleshy, spicy, very dry, again ash, sweet and sour, salty liquorice, a little nut, leather, bit of gum, espresso .... cool
    • Finish
      89 89
      long finish, especially the ashes stick for a long time, accompanied by a wonderful dry spiciness

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A massive whisky.
    • Nose
      strong, sherry aromas, sweetness, oak spice, also distinct peat smoke, some cooked root vegetables, sweetish mustard. A bit of sulfur with water, even sweeter and really sweet musty.
    • Taste
      Very fat, peat, sherry, pepper. With water tart, clear oak flavors, the peat looks more direct, slightly burnt plastic.
    • Finish
      spicy, wet leaves, peat, oak, sherry, sweetish aromas, root vegetables again. With water dominate here, too, the oak flavors with a nice sweet Hinterhrundaroma.
