  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Didnt compare this with the 10s bathes but to my best memory this is rather metallic, it is somewhat different
    • Nose
      Initially minerally and metallic, lemon oil, petrol and then coconuts and a hint of lavender. Peaty leather is always presented.
    • Taste
      Very peaty and strong alchol, but not in a simplified manner, lemon juices, intense leather and vanilla, dark chocolates
    • Finish
      Dark and dry

    Always a pleasure to have the 12 CS in the glass.
    • Nose
      Sweet (green apple + lemon) and mild smoke, smells of the Wadden Sea at low tide. Removes grease. Freshly smoked fish.
    • Taste
      The usual powerful start with cold ashes. The apple sweetener from the nose is also there immediately. Wraps nicely dry over the tongue, leaving a trail of sea salt. Pepper comes with the time and mixes pleasantly with the fruit sweetness.
    • Finish
      Long, dry, cold campfire, bacon, lemon juice.

    Colour: Straw
    Nose: Your typical smoky Islay nose, a bit on the lemony side.
    Palate: Spicy peat, citrus fruit, cloves, nutmeg, hints of vanilla and salt.
    Finish: Very long, smoky and midly spicy.
    Overall: The nose is rather generic but very pleasant. On the palate there is a true flavour explosion of peat, aromatic spices and fruit. One of the greats.


  6. Rustamich did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Excellent stuff, another outdoor dram for sure.
    • Nose
      Coal tar soap, buttered kippers, sea salt caramel and a hit of something medicinal: opening a plaster.
    • Taste
      You get hit with a sweet, honey and fruity wave first, then the smoke comes, then spices build before the smoke returns.
    • Finish
      Sooty and a little sweet.
