    A massive Speysider
    • Nose
      Sherry, furniture polish, smoke, apple, dried fruits like apricot, caramel, malt, herbs, spices. A vety busy nose, indeed.
    • Taste
      Strawberries, raspberries, orange peel, milk chocolate, coffee, black pepper, oak wood smoke. Sweet and salty. Alcohol well integrated. Doesen't need water. I like the punch when it's neat.
    • Finish
      Sherry sweetness, pepper, camp fire, coffee. The finish is quite long, due to the 57% ABV. A powerfull dram for the end of the day.

    blind Sample

    Nose: Dominant apple with sweet smoke, slightly salty, light fruit, mineral, some tar. Campfire smoke with light iodine, easily reminds me of Lagavulin with less smoke. Smells like my prey scheme, goil! But Islay South Coast is not.

    Taste: sweet / salty, spicy, herbs, orange, pear, smoked bacon

    Finish: Medium long, smoky, sweet, herbaceous, dark chocolate, slightly vinous, gets quite dry.

    Tip: smokers in cask strength, maybe a Port Charlotte or a smoky BenRiach. The alcohol is well integrated, guess 8-10 years old and sherry barrel.

    I find it more interesting than his "weaker" brother but somehow he moves "between the chairs". Either I search in the segment of "moderate smoker" and there are sooo many alternatives, such as Bowmore, Caol Ila or even an Ardmore Traditional Cask ... or I'm looking for something with "neat turns", then there are quite different blasts, especially from the independents like Marco Bonn and Michel Reick.

  9. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Wonderfully complex and smoky. In addition, vanilla, burnt caramel, salt, pithy vegetable flavors (chicory, root vegetables in the rent), soil, walnuts, leather and shoe polish. Later oak, cinnamon, allspice, ginger and orange peel follow.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly soft and oily onset. Nutty sherry, walnuts, nut shells, then smoky aromas, old metals, earthy spice, again some root vegetables fresh from the rent, Lake, ginger, gentian, cocoa and a stronger orange note.
    • Finish
      Full, spicy, dry. Delicate smokiness, a hint of peat, pepper, cocoa, rent with root vegetables, walnut shells, top! Later also gentian.
