    Stewed pears, dry sherry. Well integrated with a medium finish. Slight hints of a dirty note popping up after a while. Overall, a very enjoyable dram!
    • Taste
      Well balanced despite the abv.
    • Finish
      If you let it stay a while more in the glass, you’ll be rewarded with the explosion of stewed apples and pears .

    22 + 22 + 23 + 22 = 89 ~ WT blind tasting

  5. lincolnimp scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Dark fruits and crisp sherry on the nose, which translates to the palate bit there is a hint of sulphur in the mix but its ok
    There is also a nice peat angle on this and I think the balance is good,

  8. Kensay scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Salty, slightly varnish, very calm
    Salty, pepper, oily and spicy
    Medium length finish, spices and pepper, ripe olives
    From the 20 summer release, I expected more in flavor and development
