  1. hs305 scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2002]  I had this dram during a Prof. Schobert "Islay" tasting at Rolandsbogen. 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 this 92,5. 
    My notes state a pale blonde colour and slow fat legs with tears (oily texture at the glass).  The nose has a classic bourbon cask profile with vanilla aromas and "warm bonfire smoke".  There is some saltiness too.  It arrives in the mouth warming and a little drying.  The taste is quite gentle with cocoa and bacon flavours - I added delicious to this.  The finish is of medium length.

    Color: white wine sunlight
    Nose: Sharp and salty onset with lemon and lime juice; grassy, ​​maritime notes (seaweed, algae, seaweed and oysters), iodine, fresh asphalt, soot and lots of smoke, but only relatively little peat. Inferior are found slightly sweet notes of wild honey and heather, which occur in combination with leather and beeswax.
    Taste: Oily, soft and round, slightly fruity with maritime-salty smoke. Now ash and peat come into play, and the moon filling is becoming increasingly fruity; based on lime and grapefruit.
    Finish: Medium long with a smoky-maritime peat-honey-vanilla combination. Mineral salt and subtle malt flavors, a little tart and getting drier.
    91 points (nose: 90 / taste: 91 / finish: 91)
