19 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.67 points

  1. stollimaus did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Whisky Fun gave this bottling 13.02.2018 unbelievable 92 points! http://www.whiskyfun.com/#130218
    The points here at Whiskybase are currently at 85.84 in 21 reviewers.
    I'm curious to see how the spotting develops here in the near future ... ;-)

  2. Achany scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nose was a bit disappointing at first, it took some time until aromas developed. The Taste was much more complex. Sweet sherry influence combined with some salt and bacon. A lot of peat, cold smoke, ashes, the influence of a permanent seabreeze. Just wonderful - the ABV was integrated nicley and did not need any water at all. Just a really nice peated dram!

  3. dram-drinker scored this whisky 87 points Moderator

    All in all it is pretty light and drinkable which is surprising given the 60+%abv - however, not going over 90 points
    • Nose
      Intense sea breeze, salty, smoked oysters, brown sugar, just little fruitiness
    • Taste
      Punchy, citric, fine peaty and smoky, a bit salty, peaches, apples
    • Finish
      Long and warm

  4. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      86 86
      Young peat. Vegetal. Powerful. Oily.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Taste like a young Ledaig. Not bad, but nothing to write home about. This particular seemingly nondescript cask was made famous by Serge (92 pts) but I don't see how this is special. Oily, funky, vegetal peat (not my favorite kind of peat), powerful. Refill sherry. The flavors go up the nose and burn a bit. Water is obligatory -- noticeably better. Add liberally.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long. Simple. Linear.

  5. alex..w..fan scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    with water 83, and it is impossible to drink without water, sadly

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Powerfull and rough whisky, hefty, with lot's of high Abv influence. Still enough room for other tastes, pungent and warming.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Peat and smoke, tobacco, fruity as well. Apples, strong alcohol, honey and vanilla.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Strong, pepper, very pungent and warming, sal ammoniac. Alcohol is very strong and prominent. Sweet, honey, oranges, some chocolate, caramel and tobacco.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still a lot of pepper and alcohol, strong, warming. Bonfire smoke, peat, fruit, caramel. Long finish.

  9. detachedblue scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    An excellent young Caol Ila, hard to find any sherry influence here, but the quality of the distillate is really good.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Austere, a lot of seashells, sea salts. Pear drops and "sourness" from the new oak. BBQ meat, a modern young peater without the disgusting new oak and artificial nuttiness I found from others.
    • Taste
      87 87
      A really smooth mouthfeel despite high ABV. Intense and minty, a lot of sweet barley.
    • Finish
      90 90
      A rather long finish with camphor, dark chocolates, a lot of spices.
