    • Nose
      Lovely and sweet peat. Wood influence. Earthly notes. Fresh fruits, apple. Peach. Burnt rubber. Liquerice
    • Taste
      The sweet peat continues. A tad Sour at first sip(barrel). That went away and never came back. Burnt rubber. Apples. Oranges. Pepper.
    • Finish
      Slightly dry and long finish. Grassy. Spicy. Bitter. Hint of tobacco. Ashier in the very end

  3. Eclectic Scotchist did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted at a NMWL Stavanger tasting, and consensus then seemed to be that the undisclosed distillery might be Laphroaig for this one. Regardless, I found it to be a great example of bourbon-matured and very smoky Islay whisky, very classic indeed.

    According to the producer this is supposed to be around 7 years old.

  4. SAND scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    (Is this a Bruichladdich Lochindaal?)
    Nose: Smokey and peaty. Iodine, seaweed, seawater. Herbs,
    Taste: oooh, a nice peater; iodine, several shades of pepper, slightly sweet, some liquorice, a little aniseed. Intense, sweet, sea coast peaty, salty, slightly peppery. More brute force and punch than elegance. But still. N I C E.
    Overall: Benefits a lot from time and air. I think the nose is significantly better than the taste, which also is good. 88-90p.
