Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - (Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Straw yellow color, bordering on goldenrod. Aroma is chockfull of tobacco ash, campfire, kippers, green pepper, new leather scents that delight from the first moment. Flavor is refined, but robust and loaded with toasted marshmallow and brunt orange peel tastes. A pleasing mouthful of Islay.  (Mar 2015)

Wine Enthusiast 90 points - The first nosings find clean, apple peel-like and peat-free scents; later inhalations find a more sea breeze like, mildly briny character. Palate entry is lean, earthy, moderately smoky and lemony; midpalate is oily with flavors of ash, peat, sweet malt and brine. Concludes sweet, peaty and cigarette ash-like, with a bite of green olive. P.P. (4/1/2008) 90-95 (Apr 2008)
