  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

    Too ashy. Nothing else comes through. 55 points.

      Phew ... Phenolic smoke. Extreme. Slaying. Dry, snappy.
    • Taste

      Ash, smoke. Dry mud. A touch of strawberries.
    • Finish

      Long, too long. Bitter ash.

    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)

  6. 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.

  7. Roland7 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior
