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

    A delicate, elegant and very aromatic Islay single malt. Not overblown peat wise, just very well balanced and lovely sweet. Nicely complex with an already well-integrated alcohol. Vibrant and full of character, best to enjoy neat. Certainly one for the hip flask for a seaside walk.

    • Nose
      The nose starts
      off with peat smoke and subtle seaweed. This is followed by a delicate
      malty sweetness and fruity notes of lemon and quince. Slightly grassy
      with a hint of medicinal flavours and tender wood smoke.
    • Taste
      Bold and
      intense start on the palate. Sweet at first with malted barley, vanilla,
      honey and cereals. This is followed by peat smoke and a pleasantly warming spiciness of oak, pepper, cloves and caramelised ginger. Becomes dry with a bold peppery note towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish shows medium length with warm and dry notes of oak, cloves, barley sugar, hints of pepper and subtle wood smoke. With water: Water
      brings in more freshness on the nose emphasizing the sweetness of
      vanilla and malted barley. Still slightly fruity with a tamed smoky
      peatiness. Still intense and sweet on the palate with a significantly
      vibrant spiciness of prickling oak, black pepper, anise and cloves,
      balanced with lingering vanilla. The finish is medium long, warm and dry
      with prickling oak and a tamed sweetness on the tail.

  3. Kaltduscher scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Wow, the alcohol is well integrated. The Malt looks almost mild despite its almost 60% Vol. The peat smoke is beautifully integrated into sweet flavors and comes with a smoked bacon note. In the background yellow fruits. White pepper.
    • Taste
      Spicy start with ginger and chili. Peaches. Pears. Burnt Marshmallow. Roasted almonds. Torfasche.
    • Finish
      Medium. First, spicy notes again. Marzipan. The fruits are not quite so present anymore. Dry finish with toasted notes and some oak spice.
