I bought this bottle because it was priced o.k. Serge had a similar bottle he ranked 90. Ralfy ranked a similar one 90, and whiskybase had this one at 88+. Cooper’s Choice is not a highly regarded IB however. The pros win out and curiosity gets the best of me. Let’s see...
N asphalt, nori sheets, oily smoke, iodine, canned pineapple juice, minerals, flinty, fresh thyme. Earthy peat.
T ash, engine oil, salt water, kelp, melons. Simple syrup type light sweetness that continues all the way to the end of the finish.
F oily, wet ashes, peat smoke, rubber, pepper. Smoke fades and you’re left with simple syrup. A bit of sourness(lime)
