This ones got a lot of bourbon influence, but also quite maritime. The Ledaig funkiness is toned down, and peat is on full display.
Big, bold. Instantly a bold candied lemon peat, iodine, menthol but also softer notes of honey, bubblegum. Definitely some mint. Very coastal - oysters, seashells, seaspray, vanilla, ash.
Creamy, bold. Good mouthfeel - thick. Honeyed peat, lemons, capers, Brine. Salty. It’s the honeyed mouthfeel that really wins it for me.
Long. Tarry ropes, salty, drying. Menthol, licorice, vanilla, medicinal notes ramp up, tiger balm maybe, even pulls a page from Laphroaig with some gauze and bandaids. Could trade blows with any 20 year peater from Islay.
