Rating
 Wine Enthusiast 90 points (Jun 2006)
The luxurious nose offers a melange of sweet baked apples and peaches with assertive accents of smoke, peat, vanilla, iodine, almond brittle, and prunes. The palate is incredibly oily and viscous with its dry nature in tantalizing contrast with its rich
Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer’s yeast, bread dough, barley malt and cigar smoke in the bouquet. The flavor that magically includes the innate intense peatiness of Islay malts and the masterly employment of oak barrels phase defines "classy Islay.” Concludes sweetly, without sacrificing the tangy, astringent peatiness that is inherent. Gorgeous. — P.P. (4/1/2004) — 90-95
