  1. thebonewolf scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    It’s rough around the edges, which I typically like, but I wish it were a little bit more rounded. What I can say for sure is this dram is dirty, and I think that’s what’s confusing me. Whatever might be knocking this down for me is held aloft by that dirtiness.

      Wants to be fruity at the beginning but that gets hidden by a smoky, dry, woody combo.
    • Taste

      Spicy at first, some smoke, vegetal, earthy, dirty.

      Long, dirty, menthol-like feel, goes “off” after quite a while.

  2. Scherenschnitte scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    I seem to be the only person who picked up funky notes compared to several other reviewers for this one so maybe take that with a grain of salt. Quite an enjoyable bottle overall and I always appreciate this style of whisky. Nice balance of sweet, salt and peat. I waffled between a range of scores but the final bottle pour was really solid and bumped it up a few points.⁣
    • Nose
      Pungent. Funky blue cheese, dirty socks, smelly feet, bacon grease, nice sweet caramel note, vanilla⁣
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel. Super fatty pork belly, caramel, barley sugars, ashy smoke, very mild blue cheese crumbles, sea salt, touch of wood spice
    • Finish
      Medium-long length. Light smoke and brine that transitions to a sugary ashtray aftertaste. ⁣
