    [December, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in September, 2012.

    [January, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 58,50 Euro in October, 2012.

    [March, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 60 Euro in October, 2012.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5 all times.  My notes state a strong winey profile that most probably is not to everybody's liking - but I like it...

    Wow, peat and red wine... who knew? Oh right, Frank McHardy did! The balance here is amazing, the wine only serves the bring up the peat and maritime notes with an amazing fruity richness! Seek out the Red series when you can!

      Oooh gorgeous red fruits meet dirty rich peat! Charred strawberries and farmy notes blend into peated malt and almost creme brulee with cherry topping. Hints of minterality, shipping hemp ropes and mint wander around in the glass.

      Peaty smoke, bonfire coals and charred plums start you off on a journey. Berries and malt porridge, mint and maritime notes swim through. Farm stables to be cleaned and wood chips with strawberry compote spread on top... man this is good.

      Smoke dominates here, loads of smoke, charred oak and spice with creamy malt porridge following slowly. The finish is long, but rather muddy, the peat dominated this one and makes for a bright smokey finish filled with those red berry touches.

    • Nose
      Pretty complex. Apparently me only slowly. First, a pleasant aromatic smoke. Then comes the bourbon barrel with a nice sweetness. The caramel is however slightly salty due to the smoke. For a short flash a bright sweet fruit - could be raspberry. The red wine finish shows up last, but all the more clearly with dark fruit jam and some leather.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel. Distinct wine-typical acidity. Spicy, with oak and leather. Some smoke. Slowly gets sweeter and more fruity, but this time more towards orange.
    • Finish
      Long. Acidic to leather.
