    Much more than expected for a scotch in this price range! A great drop
    • Nose
      88 88
      Smoked bacon, fireplace room
    • Taste
      89 89
      Fat, full-bodied, sweet bacon - I once had a Wagyu bacon with maple leaf, it was extremely tasty and special. Like this drop
    • Finish
      86 86
      A slight flow of saliva and a very slightly numb tongue remain

    This is a different style of peat I never encountered before. I quite like it but don't love it. Many interesting / less common flavours pop up, which make it good in it's own way! I compared to it to the new 2020 version with a newly designed bottle (wb id 164884), but I enjoyed this 2018 version more.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Medium peat with wet wood and pine needles. Behind that there are sour citrus fruits, some liquorice, some dark chocolate and sweaty cheese.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Medium peat followed by greengages, 7up (slightly sparkling mouthfeel!), caramel, some pepper and a mineral / briny touch.
    • Finish
      85 85
      A lighter kind of peat in lingers in the finish. It's oily, mineral and a bit muddy. Mint chocolate and green bell peppers underline the unique experience this dram gives.

    loch lomond and a peaty version
    • Nose
      fruity, quite fresh peat, woody and almonds, on the core
      a little spicy
    • Taste
      spices, peppery, that tumble!
      light peat appears, with some smoked meat!
      the fruits arrive then, rather subtle, not only on the citrus fruits, there is also a little fruit on the mandarin
      wood after, and a vanilla side that stands out
      back on the almond, its core and a sweet side, then a little liquorice too!
    • Finish
      short, on the same scents, a little woody, more smoky than peaty

      Some peat and smoke, but not extremely. Fruits like apples and lemon. A note of vanilla. Followed by green notes like herbs and freshly mown grass. At the end notes of a fireplace and some bacon.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Again a bit of peat and smoke. Immediately after it turns sweet with notes of vanilla, honey and fruity toffees. A hint of mint comes through and stewed apples. Some oak and licorice too.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short. Honey, smoke and some oak lingers for a bit.

  8. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A cool multi-faceted smoky whisky with memorable features.
    • Nose
      Filled with dry smoky and woody notes. You can feel mint, tart berries, a lot of spices, iodine and fallen leaves in the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet and salty, berry, with a high content of iodine, phenols and hot spices.
    • Finish
      Long-lasting, oily, sweet-smoked, with hints of dried berries, salt, iodine, black pepper and oak.

    After enjoying the Inchmurrin 12 Island Collection I was looking for this one, but somehow it did not click the way I hoped it would. Not overly smoky, but the malt comes across pretty sweet and a bit too simplistic. Solid entry malt but not for me.
