    Notes from 5/4/15:

    I read this was a blended malt from ~16 distilleries. Nice value.
    • Nose
      Surprisingly sweet and floral. You almost forget about the ample peat smoke smell that is also present. Honey, cigar, melon.
    • Taste
      Mostly honey and grass. Smoke goes to the background. The subtle smoke has Islay (seasidey, seaweedy) flavors and mainland (wood smoke) flavors. Very nice.
    • Finish
      Smoke, coconut then malty grain.

  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is a blend of malt whiskies, with an emphasis on 8 year old Islay malt. Out of the cask the colour is of pale straw, accentuated in this blend to the colour of fine old amontillado sherry. The immediate impression is of creosote and tar, with a definite hint of autumn bonfires of withered leaves, the dying embers perhaps revisited the day after. The rich smokiness does justice to the ethnic origins of this blend and will not disappoint.
