Whisky Reviews for Anam an Islay NAS WW8 NMWL No. 5
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.63 points
Lovely and sweet peat. Wood influence. Earthly notes. Fresh fruits, apple. Peach. Burnt rubber. Liquerice
The sweet peat continues. A tad Sour at first sip(barrel). That went away and never came back. Burnt rubber. Apples. Oranges. Pepper.
Slightly dry and long finish. Grassy. Spicy. Bitter. Hint of tobacco. Ashier in the very end
- 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.
- (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.
