    From a sample. Courtesy of Hopscotch whisky bar in Liverpool.

    Quite an experience! I really didn’t expect Islay levels of peat but this reminds me of my cask strength Laphroaig!

    A nice balance between sweet and dry gives more depth than you might expect from a 5 year-old but of course Adelphi will be investing in good casks!

    The nose is sublime and it loses something with water. The mouthfeel is nice, though a little hot and it’s quite easy to drink neat but water brings out the savoury minerality. Something like Ledaig in the style of the smoke but not so much smoky bacon. Lemon oil is in there but I’m not the best at picking out all the notes.

    I would buy a bottle if I could but I find £100 already quite enough without flippers selling it for €700 shortly after it’s release. I detest this activity!

    Quite hot, but still manageable and allows for some delicious cinnamon, apple, citrus peat, sourdough and herbal flavours to come through. Overall a little raw and medicinal but the quality is there.

    Interesting, but felt like a Laphroaig copy, and it had its challenges.

      Much more an Islay nose than anything else, some sherried notes deep down, but that results in a rather musty note, actually. Bonfire with sweet dried fruits below it. Some ashes, sulphur, brine, lemon oils, more Laphroaigy than anything else.

      Quite warm, but not overpowering, good level of sweetness, quite a lot of peat smoke and medicinal notes, fresh band-aids, also quite a lot of oak and freshly cut grass, a bit of barley, some toffee, balance isn't too good and the expression is quite raw. Second chew is a lot thicker, almost oily on the palate, fresh ginger and spearmint join in, some sulphur also, refined white sugar sweetness is strong, it feels fragmented more than anything else, almost like sugar was used to mask the raw stuff. Third chew is quite powerful, but it's better with more peat smoke to the front, strong medicinal notes, not so much sugar or bitter stuff, more natural sweetness with toffee and honey, more spearmint and ginger. Getting a lot better. Still powerful and strong, and extremely Laphroaigy.

      Peat smoke, band-aids, light ginger and toffee, some honey, brine, lemon oil, oak, and espresso.
