    • Nose
      Peat, herbs, vanilla and pears
    • Taste
      Comes in sweet and smooth with a taste of vanilla and pears as in the nose after a moment dries off a bit. Then pepper and spices appears and grows, plenty of peat and coal but not until after swallowing the sip
    • Finish
      Medium long finish with fading spices turning over to 

  8. Willie JJ scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    There must have been a big peating level on this one. It's a peat freaks dram.
    • Nose
      Huge smoke, sausage and smokey bacon with bog myrtle. Breakfast in a glass with clean barley sugars.
    • Taste
      A mouthful of smoke. So sooty and smokey its almost overwhelming.
    • Finish
      Wave after wave of coal smoke. Astonishing.
