    Tasted with a few drops of water.

    Nice nose on white fruits, butter and cream but it is a little closed even with a little water.
    After a while some faint creosote notes, mixing with a dirty peat,this is really good nose.
    Creamy, peaty mouthfeel, very substantial and the peat grows in your mouth but the fruit keeps it in check and then a slightly bitter grapefruit note creeps in, I reckon there is some Caol Ila in the mix here
    Ever so slightly hot but the balance is quality here, not a mass of flavours and a bit one dimensional but it really does work.
    Nice work CB

    Edit, after playing around for a few minutes there is a metallic aftertaste which knocks it down a few points on the finish, the only negative thing about it really but the palate more than makes up for this.

  7. Luigisim scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Peculiar dram, similar to a vermouth. If I have to guess what whiskies are in, I would say Arran and Talisker.
    • Nose
      Island  style, salt and smoke 
    • Taste
      Sweet tangerines, then green olives. Strange and intriguing combination
    • Finish
      Quite long but it loses some power after ten minutes
