    Good value and it expresses its youth. Probably nearly sold out, but great nonetheless. Reminds me of Ledaig 10 except more volatile and light. Also similar to Ballechin 10 yr, but far fresher.

    Has a decent amount of intricacy coming out over time that makes it significantly better than some of the other ex-bourbon peated whisky I have had. This has the potential to be a few points higher if it were not so harsh. I'll have to look out for an older (12+) version of this if it comes out.

    (Evaluated on a sample basis.)
    • Nose
      Alcohol, slightly musty, yellow sugar melon and cucumber salad.
    • Taste
      Sweet. Spicy (chilli?). Plastic-rubber. Overripe gooseberries, ashes.
    • Finish
      Peppery and surprisingly rather drier. Mint fresh. Peppermint.
