    I had a whole bottle of it. He didn't give me much more than the normal 12er.

  4. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This is pretty good stuff and a whole other story than the standard 12 Year Old. I understand it is being discontinued, so if you still want to ad dit to your collection, now is the time. Last seen for around 45 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is soft on salted farm butter, citrus like oranges and even some pink grapefruit, heather (of course, I would say), vanilla and honey and a hint of coconut. It is indeed smokier that the standard 12 Year Old and a lot more complex. Heavy on the sweet peat. Feisty on pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Good start on the palate, slightly bitter but certainly not oaky, with loads of oranges, but also figs. The Orkney peaty is very prominent now. Caramel and again some coconut.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly long and remains smoky until the drying death.
