It might not be very 'PC' of us to say so, but this sherried young smokebomb, from a distillery near Islay's Loch Indaal, could be described as a bit of a Brui-ser, even though its real-life alter ego has a bit of a girl's name...Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
Perfect. Hey, why not stop now and declare that those were the shortest tasting notes ever? Seriously, this is brilliant. Strikingly simple yet complex at the same time (in the middle ground). Leather tobacco barbecue cigars liquorice earth creosote carbolineum ham flints ink graphite motor oil bacon camphor… This baby doesn’t even need commas. Breathtaking ;-). With water: you would have thought it would have become quieter. Are you kidding? Right, maybe it got a notch more coastal… Mouth (neat): Massive, ultra-powerful and all on… black olives and tar! Please note that I love black olives ;-). It’s really heavy – no, heavier – but by pure miracle, it’s not really cloying. I’m impressed (and I didn’t even mention these notes of ultra-strong Demerara rum). Wait, could this cask have matured under tropical climates? With water: wham! Extraordinarily massive, extremely concentrated and amazingly, well, heavy. Yes we’re afraid of nothing. Finish: Very, very long, I guess that’s what some call a mouth coating whisky. Comments: This one almost killed me. Careful with this stuff! SGP:578 - 91 points.
