  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Really tasty! The 4 years in the Oloro barrel have shown their effect. Fits great in combination with the rather dry smoke.
    • Nose
      Beautiful salty smoke, smoked fish, slightly musty, dry sherry, dark chocolate, cinnamon, some caramel, moist tobacco, plums, slightly sour, a citrus note is above all
    • Taste
      oily, viscous, intense, plum jam and then the dry smoke strikes, creamy, caramel, cinnamon, salt, dark chocolate, great mouthfeel, alcohol super integrated
    • Finish
      dry right back, hazelnuts, the whole mouth is full of dry smoke, the plums are still to be guessed, but the smoke plays the main role and lasts for a long time

  2. dram-drinker scored this whisky 92 points Moderator

    very well balanced, the peat and smoke is not taking control completely, water helps and makes even smoother and more tasty - one of the best warehouse 9 bottlings
    • Nose
      Citrusy, lemony, obvious peat and smoke, nutty, hints of rubber and sherry wood - very good
    • Taste
      Punchy, but also very oily and creamy, more citrus fruits, oak wood, well integrated peat and smoke - excellent
    • Finish
      Long and burning, zesty but not drying

  6. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fried bacon and freshly smoked eel. Will be beautifully smoky after smokehouse. Gradually, saltpeter, salt, a little bit of seaweed and leather follow, and the peat gains sweetness. Later also cough syrup, bracken and nut oil. With water: salted, bacon, some peat and oily walnut flavors and plum chutney.
    • Taste
      Oily-roasted peat flavors, salt, smoldering smokiness and a concentrated prune note, which is getting sweeter and almost jammy. With water: light peat smoke, walnuts, broth and prunes.
    • Finish
      Long, light peat smoke and fruit bread.

  7. malthead-sven scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    a beautiful Bunna, intense and elegant, without a false mark. Although he did not receive this year's highest score - which went to the Talisker 30 J 2009 - this is my whisky of the year 2017, because I first tasted it at the distillery in the face of the barrel during a fabulous tasting.
    • Nose
      spicy cinnamon winter punch in front of a crackling open fire, the ashes of which pour lightly into the nose, the aroma has blackberry jam, softened wood on the beach (flotsam), salted butter, chocolate and marzipan, with water makes the sherry keg more and more more noticeable, as well as the smoke
    • Taste
      warm and woody it starts, then it is sweeter with licorice flavor, diluted by a few drops, it shows smoky but always keeps well balanced
    • Finish
      intense but pleasantly woody, Salmiak sweets, sweet smoky at the back of the palate, the intensity decreases slowly and it stays long, again slightly salty
