  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Doux, but I've been screwing around for a tourbe poivrée et de la gomme de pneu. Le malt settles down. Pluthot frais et herbacé.
    • Taste
      Tires to death! Spices and pepper dominate the roundness of the port.
    • Finish
      No major evolution.

      Enthusiasm 3/5

    It smells like plum. And the red plum. Confit quetsches. Amarena. Then the coal, the tires, the nails break out. Laphroaigish. Quickly followed by thick, mountain honey. Apricot jam. Rhubarb. Tobacco. Nice balance after a while, but it's quite smooth. Iodine which gives a nice depth. Slight medicinal touch, but discreet. Floral reflections. In the mouth, a little light. A pinch of fine salt, crushed fruit. Spices, not too strong. Paprika, turmeric. Lamb curry. Lignite. Rather long and charcoal finish, spicy, with the fruit coming back up. Cola, stretto coffee.

    Very nice fruity bottling. The smoke also harmonizes well with the fruits that are present next to the smoke from the first moment.
    Also significantly fruity and a little oily than the PX-Cask. In 2019 this bottling was often just under € 60, which was a very good price for what is on offer here. I would not like to spend more than 70 € and would rather look for the Cairdeas bottlings instead.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Alcohol barely noticeable. Strong, phenolic smoke, some iodine, vanilla, fruit bread, pickled plums, cherry syrup and musty linen towels.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Powerful start, slightly oily, well-integrated alcohol. Noticeable smoke containing iodine, pickled cherries, hazelnuts, gingerbread, espresso, dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long finish. Tender smoke and juicy chocolate-cherry cake with vanilla.

    Please do not take my note at 100% face value. I am a complete beginner to smoke and generally very sensitive to smoke.
    My tasting notes are more from a smoker FOR smokers.
    • Nose
      82 82
      I smell smoke, sweet smoke.
      Although I can still smell the port, the smoke in my nose is generally at the top.
      After a lot of time in the glass, I get something like raisins, a light winey note, maybe even chocolate.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Here, too, the smoke is in the foreground but I think the malt is also very sweet.
      I also clearly perceive the port again and don't find that too bad at all.
      Very harmonious if I can say that.
    • Finish
      83 83
      In the finish, the sweet smoke remains with fruit and port.
      Rather a longer finish for me because I can still feel the smoke in my mouth for a long time.

    Balance (21)
    Boring (84.5)
    • Nose
      The aroma is quiet, muted ... berry notes with peat, iodized salt and hay.Vanilla and apples (21)
    • Taste
      Ash, dried fruits and pastries (21,5)
    • Finish
      At the finish, salt, a little wax, dried fruits and bitter ... dry bitter grass (21)

  10. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Yes, a Laphroaig. But rather someone who looks as if he had been pressed through the barrel by a UA with a treat. The sweetness looks a bit fake, but still scratches the mark: just about works. Quite delicious, but not very "laphroa-like".
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet and tart fruit, cloudy with haunted peat. Somewhat moldy, damp cellar, fermented fruit - in general: decay. Delicious. (Unsulphurised) raisins, dried figs. With time becoming more spicy (especially after a short covering of the glass) shows nutmeg, marjoram, chervil, thyme.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Meets the tongue with a heavy sweetness of blackberries, raisins, dried figs and grapes. Oily, strong smoke note with warm tar, seaweed and hospital corridor mist. Is pretty fat and sweet on the tongue, feels viscous. Men's chocolate, espresso beans, malt, burnt caramel.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length, dry, smoky, spicy and sweet. The smoky note gains in intensity from behind, the spices pick up momentum again after a while, the fruit sweetness is permanently present.
