    • Nose
      Smoke, dirty, chocolate is more

      strong on the palate
      dirty, fruity
    • Finish
      medium long
      warm, nutty

  2. MrYens scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

  3. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I like it well, despite the slightly dirty sounds that are not usually mine, it fits in here anyway). Very good alcohol.
    • Nose
      Starts with a light rubber note, slightly dull and slightly dirty. Fudge, sulfurized dried apricots, salty-maritime notes, lemon. Some dry smoke in the background. Tight.
    • Taste
      Starts silky, round, polished, balanced. Then he becomes more powerful. Clearly dry smoke, dunnage warehouse, peaty. Sweet. Nutty, sultanas, dried fruits, ginger. Good concentration.
    • Finish
      Again, the dry smoke and the peatiness, in between flashing fruity tones. Then sherry and dark chocolate. Dry, medium long, no bitterness.

  4. LordBellamy scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Water: No! it becomes quite thin with a little water, the sulfur note and the nose are more present, but the citrus notes are more effective.

    Conclusion: Overall, a nice sherry Islay, which is good drinkable, and very pleasing. Perhaps a little too little and then unfortunately also the modern Sherryschwefelkrankheit, at least in the nose, and there only discreetly - 85 points
    • Nose
      85 85
      large portion of peat smoke / charcoal fire, but not too strong, with an intense hint of chocolate and some dried fruit, toffee notes and hazelnut, after some time, maritime notes of pebble beach, algae and sea breeze mix with it, in the background is also something raspberry and lemon noticeable , even very subtle notes of sulfur come through again and again. The alcohol is well integrated, it is almost a little too soft in the nose
    • Taste
      86 86
      soft start with sherry sweetness, after a while, the peat takes command, the lemon and the salt from the nose are present here, chocolate, dried fruit and subtle oak spice
    • Finish
      85 85
      long, pleasantly smoky, salt, chocolate, spicy oak tannins, no bitterness, plus some vanilla notes

  5. wisekycourse scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, fairly strong peat, citrus on yellow lemon and spices!
    On the palate, it is a syrupy citrus concentrate, waxy, limit also maderized, peat fat gives the impression of being chewed, it is strong in terms of flavors, almost tasteless alcohol level!
    In the final, it's rather short, it lacks relief!

  6. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    https://whiskylovingpianist.wordpress.com/2018/03/30/whiskysquad-2018-day-2-part-1-2/

    Apparently we’ve Bunnahabhain here, not Caol Ila. Turns out I had this at last year’s show. There were quite a number of stands with last year’s stock. This highlights the importance of making a list/plan though it was refreshing to attend a show without one.

    C: This is a funny malt, one that doesn’t speak of Bunnahabhain in general. Finishes with an ashy funk.Scores 83 points, the same as last year as it turns out.

  7. didi1893 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The nose is amazingly sweet and spicy. The taste is dominated only Muff and Moder with different wood tones. In the aftermath then comes a sulfur note to light which spoils me almost the desire for this sample. Fortunately, the sulfur disappears after a few moments and leaves a pleasant aroma of rotten wood and muff.
    • Nose
      Subtle peat mixes with the first Nosing with a touch roasted aromas and fruity sweetness. The fruity sweetness slowly crystallizes into a velvety aroma of peach and apricot, the peach becomes more and more intense and fruity. A salty note rises, spicy wood and an intensifying mint note give the nose a spicy note. Milk chocolate flows over the intense fruit pieces, a little dark orange is added. Wonderfully fruity, the nose gives off its sweetish scent ...
    • Taste
      The first sip flows relatively thinly over the tongue. Spicy wood and creamy fruit flavors caress the palate. Suddenly a burning sharpness develops on the tongue and then in the complete palate, a pinch of pepper and salt make the wood sharpness really burn and flare up. Wet and moldy wood comes to the fore, Muff and Moder now take command. For a long time, the musty aroma is creamy and velvety on the palate, with tart and dry notes of wood.
    • Finish
      Herb and again a bit thin, the aftertaste of musty and decayed wood tones begins. Appearances of old walnut ... and now, in the midst of the reverberation, an intense note of sulfur rises from the harsh wood tones. Fierce and sometimes bitter, the sulfur gives off its musty aroma, from time to time fruity elements and creamy wood emerge. Slowly the harsh and musty flavors come off and leave a creamy layer of wood on the tongue. What's left is dark and tart walnut flavor ...

  8. Achany scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    On the nose there is an incredible amount of sweet sherry. Dark fruits, some sweet honey, really nice. On the palate the dry saltiness kicks in togheter with a lot of peat. The finish is all right. Not overly long, just fine. That was really unexpected, a well done combination of sherry and peat.

  9. Goethe scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Lovely Port Askaig, very rich by trying to stay simple at the same time.Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
    • Nose
      Slightly smoky, sherry milk chocolate, vanilla, raisins, dried red and dark fruits (hints of tropical fruits), hazelnuts, caramel.
    • Taste
      Sherry, some nuty smoke, salt, dried red and dark fruits, chocolate, some mocha, hints of hazelnuts.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Sweet nutty smoky oak.

  10. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A very successful experiment, I love to find new combinations of notes after 500 whiskys and this has definitely made it again. The price can be debated for a long time with no distillery mention, age, etc., but it would be worth it anyway.
    • Nose
      Very interesting nose and very own, a mixture of sweet peat, fine salt, then fine notes of red apple, one notices very subtle sherry influence, but then also not exactly definable fruits, almost like rotten mango or unripe banana, fresh vanilla, a a few dried herbs, dry, alluvial wood, light apricot, also somewhat nutty, but not hazelnut or walnut
    • Taste
      Beautiful liquorice, alluvial flotsam, but then suddenly the fruits of the nose, in the first second you think of sherry, but then comes the tropics, mango, banana chips dry, then red apple and a few red berries, a fine brine, whole subtle algae behind, even the nutty comes to the end back, vllt. Chestnut? Very beautiful, very own combination as in the nose. Not very strong in the mouth, but complex.
    • Finish
      Red apple with shell here clearly, grapefruit, some banana and vanilla, salt water, flotsam, dry malt and oak too, medium to long
