    • Nose
      85 85
      Apple juice, vanilla cookie, peach and peat.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Vanilla sugar, peat, burnt caramel, grain cookie and cocoa. Quite a dirty, mash-like twist as well.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Vanilla sugar, burnt caramel, peach and nuts. Still that dirty note in the background.

  5. Falnor scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    If the normal OB's are sometimes a bit soft, this one kicks a**! But there's more like the sweet freshness and spices.
    • Nose
      Fresh and fierce. Quite a powerful nose. Passion
      fruits and all kinds of exotic fruits. Only more in the juice or lemonade kind
      of 'fruit'. Very sweet and candied. A dirty and hot chilly  kind of peat shows itself in the mix.
    • Taste
      Butter and custard before they chilly kicks
      in. And the kick follows with lots of herbs and spices. Nutmeg, cardamon and a pinch
      of clove. The peat is more integrated in the herbals. Some fruit in the back
      like lemon and caramel sweetness.
    • Finish
      Red pepper and spices. Some peat with dry
      wood.
