    Lots of animal and umami notes, good smoke, great sweetness and balance, very enjoyable.

      Chemical notes, light medicinal notes, lanolin, soap, bacon, lard, farm animal notes all over. A bit of vanilla and honey, but not a lot. Quite enjoyable.
    • Taste

      Alcohol has some bite, but it's alright, good peppery warmth, umami flavours, cured meat, bacon, greasy lard, lanolin, strong medicinal notes, camphor, band-aids, also quite a large dose of peat smoke. Animals by the campfire with band-aids. The second chew brings a lot more sweetness, toffee, very ripe apple, ripe pears, smoke is still building up, not bad at all. Third chew is drier, fuller, has more heat and pepper, wood spices, spearmint, freshly grated ginger, smoke has stopped building up, really nice texture and taste profile here, very enjoyable.

      Warm, black pepper, toffee, animal flavours, lard, bacon, wolly lanolin, spearmint, good amount of smoke, medicinal notes now almost negligeable.

    A very dirty tasting whisky, but in a good way. Not for those who want their whisky clean and without any side notes to taste!
    • Nose
      84 84
      Smoky cereals, sweet vanilla, earthy parfume - like frankincense. Walking past an old barn with fresh haybales while someone is burning dry sticks in an earthen pit dug in front of it.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Salty smokiness, peppery warmth from the high abv. Meaty, kind of greasy smoked bacon flavors, medicinal.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Leaves a bit of a bitter aftertaste like "Underberg" digestif. With a drop of water the warming peppery burn is still there. Turn a bit sweeter for a moment, but the smoky bitterness overwhelms soon.

    Here I really get the association with cowshed, not mine.

    SMWS notes:

    The nose neat was all over the place; sweet cured smoked bacon, medicinal mouth wash, burning a frankincense and myrrh scented candle as well as damp hay and a whiff of a nearby byer – take your pick. On the palate a glowing heat, like coming in from the cold into a room with a blazing peat fire. When diluted some still got the aroma of farmyard frolics, whilst others were turning the haddock in the barrel to ensure a perfect even smoke for the famous Arbroath Smokies. To taste deliciously crunchy, chewy Chicharrón Colombiano – Colombian-style fried pork belly.
