  1. Whisk(e)yCharlie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A peat that stylistically borders both meaty and clean. Grilled fruits. Some earth+dirt+moss. Grilled fish (perhaps grouper? A meatier fish that's not too "fishy" if that makes any sense)
    • Taste
      Sweet peat. Mustard. Meaty and gamey. Some comparisons to non-cask strength Staoisha would be warranted, though this is milder still.
    • Finish
      Brings in more Islay-style peat and coastal tones than were present on the nose. Both mossy and kelp-y. Sweet and spicy dark mustard. The dying note is a mix of clean peat with something slightly metallic (like a less intense version of sucking on a copper penny)
