  1. Pyromann scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I didn't taste it blind, so I expected something like that. And this whiskey certainly did not disappoint me, rather pleased (I just like BigPeat). Christmas for tough guys.

    * The water opens it more into the sweet-acid, but kills the beautiful smoky peat. So in my opinion, rather without water.
    • Nose
      Pleasant, rounded, smoked peat. There is a bit of sweetness from the background (evokes some wine), which is interestingly combined with smoked meat and smoke. Some synths typical of Big Peat. Salt. Even some oranges peek out.
    • Taste
      Sharp, smoked, there is already a full smoke base. In taste surprisingly heavier, dense. After a while the synthetics smell again. Coal (not a charge like Ardbeg, but it is definitely here). The sweetness is still holding.
    • Finish
      Rather shorter, smoked, coal.

  2. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    83 with a balance, not everything is ok ... It’s okay to drink ...
    Nose: let stand for 10 minutes ... do not pour more than 20-25 ml otherwise the fowl will clog everything ... citrus, charcoal, ash, salt, vanilla
    Taste: light, peaty, salty ...
    Finish: medium, charcoal with black pepper.

  5. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    On the nose, oh oh oh! Peat! But not only. There are also cereals, a meat side, citrus fruits and then leather. In the mouth, OH OH OH! Peat that rises in power, but also wrapped in softness. Final: WOW WOW WOW, peat! She has gone up a notch yet! But accompanied by a sacred dose of salt, pepper and lemon. Fruity retroolfaction. With water, the nose is warmer and delivers a little flour, the palate restores the vanilla bourbon casks and the final, paradoxically is distinguished by a clear drought.
    Enthusiasm 4/5

  9. domani scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A smoky blended malt, with a pleasant campfire smoke. Created with barrels of Ardbeg, Coal Ila, Bowmore and Port Ellen - 18.10.2014
    • Nose
      Campfire smoke, sweet, butter biscuit
    • Taste
      Dominant smoke, but pleasant and not very obtrusive, smoked bacon, eucalyptus, pinewood
    • Finish
      Short

  10. deleo07 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    I like the nose and the initial taste, there is a lot of sour citrus fruit, also a sea saltiness. The second part of the whisky is dominated by a lot of peat.
