  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I really like an honest ex-bourbon smoker
    • Nose
      Pretty straight forward vanilla and smoke, very creamy and pleasant, the smoke is slightly spicy, overall the nose is quite dry, even if it comes with a little sweetness, light fruit can also be found, ripe banana, slightly greasy and salty, overall quite simple, but efficient
    • Taste
      oily, cinnamon smoke, vanilla, creamy, sweet, very weak banana here too, sour and slightly tingly, caramel, cinnamon, smoke and vanilla dominate, the banana becomes miller milk and therefore a little more intense, does not need water
    • Finish
      getting drier, sweetness stays on the palate, the smoke is ashy, still light cinnamon, warming, long-lasting, nice to drink

  2. Fortuna1895 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    1846 Islay must be a Caol Ila.

  3. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This
    is a bold, rich, and intense dram. Unmistakably and 100% Islay! Fresh,
    peaty, peppery, lively. A muscular experience with a lovely balance of sweetness. A beautiful uncompromising Islay single malt. A bit burning on the tongue, but more enjoyable when neat - at least for me. One for the hip flask for a seaside walk on Islay!






    I thank Michel Reick from Scotch Universe for the sample and the photograph!

    • Nose
      The nose starts
      off with peat and burnt rubber notes. Quite intense. Behind that, a
      lovely mix of malted barley sweetness and fruity flavours arrives,
      mainly citric fruits and yellow pears. Hints of anise with a meaty note
      of slightly smoked bacon in the back. Bold, rich and very attractive!
    • Taste
      Bold and intense on the palate, too. Dry coal and tar, lovely interwoven with sweet vanilla, malted barley, honey and cereals. This is immediately followed by a significantly warming spiciness of oak, black pepper, anise. Becomes very dry with a bold peaty note towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The
      finish is very long, warm and dry with peat, black pepper, spiced oak,
      and cloves. Cold smoke, mixed with coal tar and a hint of honey and
      barley sugar on the tail.
      With water:
      Water
      brings in more freshness on the nose and slightly tames the peaty and
      coal-like flavours. The spiciness is increased with oak, pepper and
      cloves while a slightly floral note appears. Still bold and intense on
      the palate with a warming spiciness of oak, pepper, and cloves. Quite
      prickling on the tongue, supported by a lovely malty sweetness, vanilla
      and crisp peat. The finish is long, lingering sweet with honey, barley
      sugar and vanilla. Becomes dry on the tail with spiced oak.

  4. Kaltduscher scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A classic representative of Islay Island. Sweet peat smoke. Vanilla. Iodine. A slight greasiness.
    • Taste
      Strong start. Ash. Mineral notes. In the background some fruit (pear). Bacon.
    • Finish
      Medium. At first very spicy. Pepper. Iodine. Lime. Then the smoke pushes forward. Torfasche.
