    This is a strange one! It’s very, very bitter, without much sweetness at all on the palate or finish… but it’s also kind of good! This whisky brought up lots of memories of snowy winter walks, in case you couldn’t tell. As far as what scotch this might compare too, I actually tried it blind before writing this review and thought it was a Ledaig. It’s missing the coastal elements, but it’s got that heavy peat and the vegetal notes. I’d recommend this to people who want pure smoke in their whisky, without all this “sweetness” and “balance” nonsense.
    • Nose
      Raw and peaty. Quite ashy, with white pepper and a bit of kerosene. Complex green notes: fragrant fresh jalapeno and lemongrass, as well as mustier herb notes of bay leaf, dried mint, licorice root, tomato vine, and thyme. Earthy barley, damp hay, and floor of a deep-winter log cabin. Soft sweet flavours of pear and gentle vanilla. Blueberry? Is that just because this is a Swedish whisky? Oh, as it sits, definitely blueberry, and lime as well.
    • Taste
      Medium texture. Bitter and earthy on the arrival, with various root vegetables. Ashy peat smoke on the development. Quite dark, earthy, and vegetal. Lots of tobacco, old leather, musty basement.
      Sweetness only appears once the whisky has sat for a while – now there’s some soft barley and lemon on the arrival.
    • Finish
      Medium-long and bitter. Campfire ash, cool oak, suede, and mud. A snowy creek in the winter forest, trickling into frozen wetlands. White pepper and a hint of nutmeg. A tiny hint of sweet malt and lime zest.

      Grape gum, green smoke, vanilla.

      Floral, fruity, smoke.

      The sip of a mocha latte where you also get the cinnamon on the top in the sip. Some smoke after that, the cinnamon kinds of turns into smoke, and then it becomes like a charred marshmallow.

  6. EvilAFI scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This works, it’s a simple well done peated dram. Sweet and peated with peppery cinnamon spices.
    • Nose
      Peat, malt, cinnamon, honey,
    • Taste
      Peat, pepper cinnamon, apple, sweet and a tad tart,
    • Finish
      Warm, spices linger with sweet peat sugar combo
