  1. peathead scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Peat of course, but less emphatically than you would expect. Some smoke. You clearly smell the influence of the bourbon barrels, but there is something sweet to note. I also smell something that is very similar to wet moss and 'wet dog'. Sounds strange maybe, but still. With water, there is much more peat up.
    • Taste
      OMG !! Peat and peat with quite some smoke, BUT it remains a gentle attack. (*) This is a VERY oily whisky. You have to chew him almost before you can swallow him. Delicious turf but not as 'direct' as the 3D3 Norrie Campbell Tribute I think. Yet I also taste some fresh cake and malt like a good Lowlander. There is much more balance with water
    • Finish
      short (too short if you ask me), again a lot of peat and smoke. What salty and dry too.
