    It's a fiasco, bro! Or just cold Scottish revenge? When I inhaled the freshly opened bottle, there was ashes there. And that's it! Aeration in the bottle revealed the aroma, but the taste ... I did not understand the admiration for this release.
    No, of course, there are no repulsive or brah notes in it. But I absolutely did not hear Bowmore's charm this time. The aroma is not bad, but then we just smoke around the fire, watching the shashlik burn to coal, strung alternately with meat with lemon slices.
    Russian soul - darkness. It seems to be a tribute to peat fashion that captures the mind and leads to ... Ashes to Ashes :)

      If you do not touch the glass, the aroma of the whiskey that breathed is very pleasant. Ardbeg profile with interweaving from Caol Ila. Lemons, baked on the fire with coal and wild red berries with salt, and all this is placed in a creamy honey casing. Very fresh and spring scent. When rolling, more medicine, malt, grain, dry hay is manifested. The fragrance has blossomed, and you can make the first big conclusion: THIS BLENDE MOLTA REQUIRES TIME FOR AERATION IN A BOTTLE!

      The taste is strongly coal-medical, bitter unripe berries, dry tannins. Almost no fruitiness, except lemons with zest. Charred barbecue, and Ash ... Ash ... Ash ...
      TIME CAN'T CHANGE TASTE FOR THE BEST! :)

      The aftertaste is a stabilized taste with smoothly damped cigarette smoke, ash and light oak tones ...
      The most uninteresting of all the tested BIG PEAT.

    Colour: white wine.
    Nose: rottenness of ripe fruits, peated smoke, salt, white fruits, muffins, vanilla, apples and pears peel.
    Mouth: peated smoke, white fruits, dust and salt.
    Finish: long, white fruits, dust, peated smoke and grass.
    Big Peat is a good balanced peaty whisky.

    Compared to the classic bigpeat 46%, the Russian Edition gained two additional degrees, reaching 48%, but the charm of this blendedmalt did not increase, I would hardly be able to distinguish it from others in the country edition in blindtasting. But Islay is easy to recognize

      An extinguished fire and ash are the main theme of the fragrance; but there are also vanilla-fruity notes: green pear, lemon cheesecake; some minerality and medicine
    • Taste
      84 84
      Dry; smoky aylovsky; salty olives suddenly appear; here is a little lemon and caramel; smack of ash and pepper at the end - as a tribute to "Russian Edition"
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium, dry; a bitter medicinal wave passes, giving way to smoky, even burnt tones; everything is quite simple and expected
