N: I find peated whisky the best when I don’t notice the peat head-on, rather what it adds to the party, and there’s plenty of descriptors for a shopping list. That aside, we’ve a base profile of sugared & buttered breads, much like Lardy cake.
T: Again, what’s most striking is not the peat itself, but what the peat conjures. Octomore’s do that beautifully. This is no Octomore however, this is competent, clean & savoury< sweet SMWS-styled whisky with an instant oily/chewy appeal.
F: I get a touch of vegetal-fresh though it remains largely savoury < sweet.
C: Good vibes. This is a whisky I definitely want another dram of, if not a bottle.
