Sample from 'the tasting collection'. Pours a rather light yellow, with only a milder golden shine. Aroma is strong - to say the least. Even pouring the sample out fills the room with aroma's. Scent is strong peaty, sharp dirt, smoke, ashy, burnt wood almost. Not my type of nose - as expected. Taste is medium intense, charred barrel, dirt, peat ( who'd expect ? ) full, woody side that goes well with the peat. however, where the ardbeg Ubigail ( sorry if I butchered that name ) provided a decent mouth and an amazing finish, this whisky evolves less to me. It circles more around the peat, and offers little outside of that. Definately not undrinkable or anything like that, just not for me.
