    Big Peat Drinks by the Dram Ed BMSW 48%.

    30ml at home, Aug 2021.

    Colourless, or so close to being so as to not be worth attempting to describe it otherwise. Strictly it lacks the colour it needs to have to be called whisky by law, although personally I'm very glad that is hasn’t any caramel in it.

    Musty, mildly smoky aroma, faint lemon vibes. Suggestive of Ardbeg, Kilchoman and Caol Ila. Touch of WD40, but very mild. Buttery mince pies. Seawater. Polished metal. Coins. Softest caramel note. The blend of whiskies is definitely throwing up some interesting aromas. All a bit muted and metallic though. Polished metal becomes a bit dominant.

    Taste is soft and easy, light salty spirit, rusty notes, lingering smoke. A good dose of Caol Ila here for sure, as you'd expect, although I get the characteristic Ardbeg mid-palate flavour of lemon shortbread too. A perfectly pleasing Islay whisky taste-wise. As solid as you like. Clean spirit. Punchy peat smoke. The aroma doesn't do that much for me but it drinks great at the end of an evening. 3.5/84

    Nose - the worst whisky in my life. Little bit peaty and huge undefined smell that definitely does not push you to drink the bottle.

    Taste - little peaty whisky spirit with medicinal tail.

    I preffer not to dring it anymore.
