  1. Myke scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    mild representative of the smoky whiskys from Islay. Interesting with marzipan, brown sugar and dried fruits. If he stands a little longer, more aromas come into play that can be smelled; exciting whisky.
    • Nose
      first light smoke, a bit of peat aroma. Sweet and dried fruit. The whisky should stand a little so that all flavors can develop. Then there is some citrus and orange aroma. There is also a hint of vanilla and something floral at the back.
    • Taste
      first mild, then spices with light smoke. Sweetness from dried plums, figs and dates. There is another aroma that I find hard to grasp, maybe something like clove (hidden in the spices, it will later on the tongue).
    • Finish
      relatively short to medium length with some smoke, this stays on the tongue longer. Marzipan and brown sugar remain with a nice sweetness. It gets dry on the tongue relatively quickly.

  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Compared to the Sanaig is already full of character. The sherry influence is stronger and the smoke is fuller. In addition, this funny juniper note, which I often times in Kilchoman in the mouth.

    For me better than the Sanaig, since he has a bit more corners Loch Gorm. Pretty good.

  6. Gere scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nicely balanced between peat sherry and sea breeze
    • Nose
      first nice sweet peaty smoke, sherry joins with light notes of a mild sea breeze
    • Taste
      Peaty and sweet, yes sweet notes of wood may be slightly oily
    • Finish
      very supple and remains faithful to peat and sweetness. slowly the sea breeze comes over in a nice salty note.

  10. 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.
