    Nicely balanced between peat sherry and sea breeze

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N- Much anticipated 2017 release after the very good Edt2 (86pt) and the excellent Edt3 (90pt). This one with 7-8YO also marked the longest maturation given for this line. Well intertwined of coal smokes, chocolate with whiff of antiseptic, then air dried salted meats with alluring fishy notes. Well behaved and laid-back with soft sherry influence.

    P- Thick smoky fruit compote sphere with brine, pepper and sweet tropical fruits.  Balanced with dash of juicy sweetened lemon. Drift of cardboard.  Although bordering to generic, but still good with the firm structure.

    F- Medium-long, sweet with lasting peppery coat. Solid smokes throughout dressed with sweet fruits. Expected it to be more resinous filled and tall as it has been matured longer in the cask, but it is not the case.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
