    • Nose
      Slightly smoky, balanced with slightly floral, but also slightly plastic-like.
    • Taste
      Slightly smoky, with vanilla; reasonably flat whiskey.

    Peat dominates burnt rubber, fruity, quite light, interesting.

    For me, it is an disgusting whiskey. It tastes like plastic. The only whiskey that I don` t like. Sorry.

    Nose: Smokey peatiness balanced by heather floralness with hints of honey and oak. Taste: Silky smooth with a honey sweet start, followed by more complex aromas of malt and fruit giving way to the intensifying full bodied peat. A well-balanced yet complex taste with vanilla oak notes. Finish: A long and glorious finish with golden honey notes and deep peat spreading across the mouth and palate. Hints of chocolate vanilla and oak leave a mouth-watering taste!

    Peat, peat, peat, peat... and what else? In my humble opinion lacks of something else behind the peat. Anyway, I won´t say no to a dram of it. An average whiskey that can be enjoyable for a non demanding palate.

    • Nose
      Sweet, pure peat, vanilla and flower tones - one of the deepest and most comprehensive Irish scents.
    • Taste
      The taste is again very sweet, peat, soft honey and oily, wonderfully smoky.
    • Finish
      It dries and gets a bit of oak morsel, but the peat rolls on.

    I liked it, but there was something missing.  Maybe Ireland is not ready for the peated variety.  it sure can`t hold a candle to Islay!
