    If it says peated on it, the violet aroma will surprise you the first time you smell it. There is also something between pine resin and turpentine.

    The second smell: liquorice, lavender, aftershave rather than whisky.

    With lots of movement, warming and streaking (the Bourbon Cask had tears), now comes something with young oak and porridge. The latter could also be the character of a distillery. PS: No trace of smoke. But a beautiful golden color.

    Oak wort and sweetness penetrate the palate with all their might. Now smoke is rushing in, but bridled by French herbs. Then it is cared for sweetly, before it meanders slightly oak-spicy and slightly peated towards the medium-long finish.

    This is a very unusual whisky, the nose of which is rather shocking, but which has a lot to offer the palate.

    Not bad, but too many VO overtones to mask the young whisky. Strength could have been higher too.
    The packaging is the most horrible cheat in the industry. The box is extra big with a special inlay to hide the fact it is only a 500ml bottle inside - it looks even bigger than any 700ml standard too. I am sure a lot of people will feel cheated at some point. Why start a relationship like this?

    Tasted at a New Scottish Distilleries Tasting... (btw: the winner was a 21 month old Lindores Abbey cask sample that even pulverized a Kilchoman 100% Islay).

    OK, it is similar to the unpeated, only "peated". The Virgin Oak screams, the sherry barrel is subtle and there is still a clear peat note on it. All in all not uncomfortable, but still visibly young and just needs a little more.
    • Nose
      has the young notes similar to the unpeated, this nice fruitiness, but also a slight solvent note, which I add to a Virgin Oak, plus a clear but not too dominant grassy peat note.
    • Taste
      soft, almost thin, tart notes, fruitiness, oak, peat
    • Finish
      sweet, peaty, tingling, sliding over time into the tart to make room for a sweet (from the sherry barrel?). Amazingly cute at the end before the peat flag fades away.
