Color
Pale gold
Nose

Burnt embers, slight iodine, sweet butter cake.

Taste

Very creamy, with a soft, medicinal, peat smoke melange.  Some vanilla and butterscotch in the background, with smoky, wood notes beneath.

Finish

Medium length, burnt matches, oak wood, and a hint of something sweet, like vanilla frosting.

Comments

I really enjoyed this whisky.  It was a very smooth, intriguing blend, and I kept trying to figure out the principle malts in it.  I would guess it might be Ardbeg, because I didn’t detect the extra briny, seaweed flavors of Laphroaig.  I’m guessing it also had a fair share of Ardmore in it, along with Benromach, but that’s only my guess based on other malts I’ve had.  I kept trying to fight through the peat smoke to get to the sweet undercurrents, and the best I could detect was something like cream cheese frosting…the kind on pumpkin bars.  Very good stuff!

The nose has a simple sweet plus peat aspect to it with a hint of chocolate and I find more of the same when sipping. The peat isn’t too strong yet it does have a solid presence. The finish is interesting in that it lasts a decent amount of time yet doesn’t have a distinct characteristic besides the hint of chocolate plus peat I mentioned earlier.

I like this blend yet cannot put to words exactly why it is intriguing. Perhaps it’s good because there is nothing to pick out that as bad.
