  1. vlad78 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A characteristic drink for this distillery, surpassing its regular releases.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Extremely smoky, hot (it's like you stuck your head over a factory chimney), dense (you feel not even skin, but a boxing glove that you just got in your face). I think you are familiar with this smell of the old ring. The smoke is getting heavier, you are arriving. But with mineral and iodine tones, sweet ones also rise - dates, raisins and prunes. It seems to me that there is also smoked mackerel, but industrial tones quickly drive it away.

      The taste of cotton candy, which was cooked on set on fire tires, and through this I eat plum jam, which was sprinkled with lemon juice, sitting on the swamp.

      Bright, very smoky, very sweet, leaving soot in the mouth.

  2. Rustamich did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A well balanced islander. Feet in peat and head in smoke, standing in the briny air. With a warm heart. Great encounter.
    • Nose
      Phenolic. Bags of creosote. Mineral. Pebbles drying in the sun.
    • Taste
      Smooth and sweet. Lovely smoky maltiness wrapping up your tastebuds in smoke and soot. A citrus fruit touch.
    • Finish
      Smoky, dry with a pleasant spiciness.
