    I like this dram twice as much as Talisker 30. at first pour I thought it was slightly rough, but a little air in the bottle helped smooth things. there is a wonderful honeydew in the finish which lingers quite a while. I would buy this one again in a heartbeat!

    smoked and spicy sweetness:
    yellow fruits, a vanilla return, dry and smoky grassy traces, the malt is present and brings a constant softness. The smoke remains very discreet during the tasting. The finish is quite short.

    Great and tasty. My whisky Stramash (Edinburgh) 2019 choice!
    Nose is peat, smoke, malt, citruses. Taste adds bold butter notes. Finish echoes taste with spicy cut
