  1. Z28Pete scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A heavily peated Speyside -

    Nose: Wonderful smoky bacon, a little farmyard, no TCP or iodine. Peat smoke is more woody like a campfire.Palate: Firm earthy peat, dry, mouthwatering, smoke coating the mouth. Some sweet notes. Spicy at the back of the throat.
    Finish: Fairly long. A little spicy. Strong peat smoke that fades away.Good presentation: natural color, 46% abv, non-chill filtered.Overall a whisky that leaves a strong impression.

    Whisky is never harsh but definately in your face.

    For Peat Heads this is a whisky to try. Different from Islay south coast but with about the same peat ppm levels. I prefer this one neat.
    • Nose
      Smoked bacon is the first impression. Very smokey but pleasantly so. Woody, leafy smoke with no TCP or medicinal notes.
    • Taste
      Neat : Peat smoke - just like the nose. Some sweetness, perhaps honey, a little malt. Coats the mouth very nicely and a little tingle on the sides of the tongue. With water : a little smoother, less rough edges. 
    • Finish
      Medium to long finish, with smoke again dominate. Fades away leaving a lingering smokey memory.
