    A non-peat lover won’t like this, a peat lover will. While it isn’t what people typically call a “monster”, they have achieved the desired ramp up in elegance intended with the new recipe.
    • Nose
      Subtle smoke, old lemon (dried from being sliced and sitting in the fridge rather than dehydrated), brine, metal, not quite pepperoni.
    • Taste
      Smoke, white pepper, much peat but not “in your face”.
    • Finish
      Long, ash/tobacco, meat char.

    Well-balanced "peat" malt whiskey. Very nice artistic etiquette))

    Good but a quite shirt finish. It's a powerful Whisky on the finishing.
    A little on the sweet but strength.

    Gardening peat whisky with a brilliant sweet malty development.

    At this moment 1/4 through the bottle.
    In a brief summation - an elegant light baby peater, with all there is to be desired from a refill Islay youngster.

    Turpentine - Bone marrow - Old engine - Carpet store - Mint - Sage...

    First and foremost, I'm pleasantly surprised! Was on the lookout for a malt like this: with peaty, medicinal, savory and marine flavors, BUT not a ton of smoke.
    It's light, not a heavy hitter. Swims excellently - as you add water couple of drops at a time, it gets increasingly sweet and savory. This dram is supposed to be youngish blend of primarily Caol Ila with a good portion of Laphroaig and just a dash of some other stuff (upon asking via email folks at CB provide even more info than what's on their charts). Beats me why they couldn't just ommit the 1% of some highland malt and just call it what it is - an essential Islay. But let them do their thing, since it works so splendidly.
