Aroma: notes of smoke, coal and pepper. Tar and brine. Small hints of medicine, vanilla and leather. With water some farmy notes emerge - compost, pig skin, damp earth. Really interesting.
Palate: ash, brine and zest, grapefruit also. Traces of nuts, roots and bitter wood. Powerful, salty finish with notes of nuts and citrus.
Comments: smoke and salt bomb with hints of citrus fruits and zest. Grabs your attention always, you can not ignore it. I find Corryvreckan slightly better to my taste, but this one is also great, especially for the price and at this (probably young) age.

The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
