pilgrim77 gave this whisky 90 points

Rich, sweet and fruity (PX) Sherry blends in beautifully with the peaty and nutty PC spirit on the nose, each complementing and enhancing the other. A few drops of water accentuated both elements further and released some additional flinty notes and hints of a damp dunnage warehouse, alongside a touch of vanilla and creamy honey. Great stuff (as long as you like a sweet Sherry/peat combo). Remarkably similar profile on the palate, with the sweet and fruity Sherry combining with hazelnut coffee, some spicy chilli peppers, soft peat and sharp citrus fruits. A long, lingering sweet and smoky finish rounds things off. One of the most consistent drams, with the same profile present from nose to finish, that I've ever had. Lovely stuff. Great cask selection and bottled at just the right time!

Expert Senior LordBellamy Note

LordBellamy gave this whisky 90 points

Nase: der Torf paart sich von Anfang an mit roten Früchten, geräucherte Erdbeeren, Kaffee Latte mit Karamellsirup, enorm dicht und fast klebrig in der Nase, der Torf geht Richtung Lagerfeuer, dazu leicht mineralisch, die Frucht bekommt etwas leicht säuerliches dazu (Rhababer), etwas Schokolade, Zimt, und Lakritze zeigen sich nach einer Weile im Glas, Datteln und würzige Nelke, die Alkoholstärke ist perfekt

Geschmack: er startet mit einer unglaubliche intensiven und dunklen Toffeesüße, dann kommen Nüsse/Nougat dazu, der Torf setzt etwas später ein und unterstreicht das Ganze mit einer Portion glimmendem Lagerfeuers und leichten Aschenoten

Finish: lang und klebrige Sherrysüße, Kaffee und Haselnüsse, auch die Erdbeere ist wieder da, dazu das weiter glühende Lagerfeuer mit einer erdig-mineralischen Unternote

Wasser? Nein, Danke!

Fazit: Natürlich wird für mich dieser Malt immer mit einem einmaligen Abend in der Bucht vor Ardbeg verbunden bleiben. Aber auch mit etwas Abstand und natürlich trotzdem total subjektiv ist das einfach ein verdammt leckerer Whisky. Die erste Nase schreit schon ohrenbetörend: TRINK MICH. Der ist einfach unglaublich süffig, jeder Tropfen spricht mit Dir, macht Spass, lässt sich genüßlich durch den Gaumen rollen. Obwohl die Nase viel Spass macht - dieser Whisky will einfach genossen, getrunken... nein, verschlungen werden - 90 Punkte

Using all the wrong lines and the wrong signs With the wrong intensity - martin l. gore

ein Port Charlotte der mich an Haselnüsse, Kaffee und irgendwie süsse Erdbeeren erinnert.
