  4. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The first bottle (serie 2.1) of the They Inspired II series by Michiel Wigman.
    A chic malt for lovers of peat bogs!
    I assume based on its taste and aroma that it is either Lagavulin or Lafroeig. And since Lagavulin only works with barrels of bourbon and sherry, I put on Lafroeig, aged in a barrel from Monbaziyak.
    And yes, Miles Davis on the label is super cool!
