    Something special, at least as far as the price.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Extremely strong phenolic smoke that intrudes like a hammer.
      Medical sharpness is immediately added to the smoke, only after a long time you can see a little vanilla and a little undefinable sweetness.
    • Taste
      83 83
      There was a bit of sweetness right at the beginning, but it can not be grasped because the smoke immediately catches the mouth and sticks to the palate.
      Otherwise, a slightly spicy wood is still visible.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Smoky sweet chocolate, rather hits the nail on the head.
      Slightly creamy, long-lasting and finally light citrus notes with a butter biscuit appeal

    The peated arms race...258 ppm phenol...strong peat smoke in the nose, the mouthful is coating, more smoke, a hint of sweetness? an orange thrown in the fire? very high ABV, small bit of water does aid to bring other flavor notes into the picture...brine, maybe a sardine in a shoe...my concluding sense is the high ppm index is most impactful in nose...Ardbeg Corryvreken I find to be more “peat smokey” in palate
