    Compared to other young NAS cask strength whiskies that have been released recently, this is quite a steal. Value (£38) : 9/10. It is definitely big and bold and stands up to it's 'Heavily Peated' name. However it does show its youth with some rough edges. Overall though, I am excited to see how this develops over time and what future releases may hold once this reaches maturity.
    • Nose
      Heavy smoke from the moment the cork is removed, no need to search for this one. It. is definitely rich and ashy smoke with some. soot as well. Quite sweet with vanilla and creme caramels. Milk chocolate and some apple sauce. Honey roasted peanuts. It lacks the maritime notes I usually associate with Campbeltown but does have some minerality to it. Some sharp metallic notes showing its youth. Black pepper heat along with light alcohol burn.
    • Taste
      A similar story on the palate. Very sweet and spirit-like. Even more ashtray-like. Fresh fruits with green apples and pears. More vanilla and peanuts. Black pepper heat. Some dirty farmyard notes in the background. Quite herbal. Then heavy, rich earthy peat and more alcohol heat.
    • Finish
      The finish is spicy and dominated by that earthy rich peat note. More ash and a touch of caramel. Not overly complex and short to medium in length
