  1. StanM did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Whiskyfun taste:

    This one by the ever-engaging Nadi Fiori, it was about time I tried it. Colour: white wine. Nose: oh true class! Much gentler than the Dramfools, and really not that peaty, rather on grapefruits, maracuja, sour wines – Italians, naturally – and a tarry chalkiness that would kind of remind us of lighter Ardbeg, 17-year-old-style. Honestly you nose this blind, you say Ardbeg. Mouth: brilliant, a little lighter than ‘beg’ this time, and perhaps a little more on all things waxy and from the sea. Old fisherman’s nets, cough lozenges, some earth, Brussels sprouts and Jerusalem artichokes. With Covid, it’s good to travel. Finish: long, oilier. Crazily smoked salmon. Comments: wondering if they hadn’t tried to benchmark Ardbeg. Do not forget that before they could buy ‘Laddie, the gang had tried to buy Ardbeg – which, eventually, rather went to Glenmo. Anyway, old stories… and a formidable bottle, well done Nadi.
    SGP:467 - 91 points.

    Edit 02.04.2021 : Tonight I re-tasted it, I had a 5cl saved sample. Well, it is way better than my memory of it. Very citrusy and fishy, smoked herring and tangerine. Peat is really discreet and the malt is waxy and elegant with a good oily mouthfeel.
