  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

    I must say I like it very much. Thanks to Serge, he will stay my trustfull blogger #1

    I don´t have it at 92 like Serge but at good 89/100
    • Nose
      I´m not a big fan of young Islay peaters but Serge´s notes made me curious.

      the nose is very tarry, smoky and medicinal as to be expected. quite some brine and a herbal side (dill). having read Serge´s notes I must say I cannot get olive oil and no anchovies. but yes it´s a little mezcally indeed and after a while I get whiffs of shoe polish. and tangerines as soon as my nose got used to the medicinal assault.

      a drop of water adds some pine sap.

      I must say I like it very much. Thanks to Serge, he will stay my trustfull blogger #1
    • Taste
      with water: this is no narrow, aggressive peater at all. it´s oily and fat, smoky , tarry, herbal, briny. liquorice. not too sweet behind the smoke and tar but sweet enough to avoid bitterness. really profound stuff I must say and I do not find this simple at all.
    • Finish
      tarry and slightly bitter.
