    A sample from my drivers pack after a distillery tasting.
    Hard to judge, as for me it struggles to perform as a peated whisky, and yet is too peated to pass as a "normal" smoky.
    • Nose

      A very delicate, sweet, gentle and pleasant peat.
      I think they said at the distillery that it's about 20 ppm.
      Nice fruityness, some cereal notes.
      This would make a very good introduction to peated whisky.
    • Taste

      Probably would be OK for a "newbie" at peat, but for a sworn peathead it is very soft indeed.
      I find it a bit thin at 43%, it reminds me a lot of a 1970's smoky blend (which probably had a lot more malt than what is the average today).
      This lack of "power" in a clearly peated whisky draw my feelings towards stagnant, stale marsh water, something I would not drink and even would need wellies to wade through.
      Some spice save it from total disaster.
    • Finish
      80 80
      It picks up a bit at the finish.
      Richer and more savoury than the main body.
