    One fine dram. Not easy to find - small bottlings of a mere 120 bottles will do that - but definitely worth the try. Heavy on the peat, but finding surprising balance, this is one benchmarking young whisky. From this point on, every peated whisky I try will be measured up to this one. Slainte!
    • Nose
      Campfire smoke from the get-go, this is one strongly peated dram. Underneath all the peat, there's a hint of fruity sweetness. Raisins and sultanas, even.
    • Taste
      Bottled at a cask-strength of 63.9%, this dram is not to be taken lightly. Sipping this whisky brings heat to the lips and warmth to the tongue. The peat hits heavy, combining with the heat to bring the mouth aflame. Then the fruit emerges. Sultanas, definitely. Vanilla and caramel come next. Peat throughout. Still young at 8 years, this whisky finds a surprising balance between the peat that is intense but not overwhelming and the fruitiness with soft, sugary notes.
    • Finish
      The finish will make you reek like a dragon that's all smoke and no fire. The sultanas tend to change to Christmas pudding, but die in the embers fire. As the smoke lingers and lingers and lingers, a sudden fine salty bitter emerges, leaving you wanting more.
