  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 91 points Specialist

    Notes by memory from drams shared with karloff in Dufftown. Thanks mate!
    • Nose
      Right up there with the most peated Octomore.

      Everything Islay, and then some.

      This is truely love it or hate it stuff, and I loved it.

      Complex? Hard to tell through the peat, but it's got soot, rubber and sea salt.
    • Taste
      If you love peat monsters there's no other way than neat. And it goes down surprisingly easy.

      It's extremely bold, with peat, smoke, soot, rubber, liqorice, sea weed and iodine.
    • Finish
      As expected, you won't get rid of this for some time.

      Not much evolvement, but it stays on.

    This isn't for the faint of heart and for die hard peat lovers only or those who have an adventures palette or just a little bit crazy. 
    • Nose
      This smells like an old steam train pulling into a station and the devil is driving it. A chimney sweeps soot bag. No need to trim my nose hair tonight. The peat is really strong and almost smothers everything else. Liquorice wood stick. There is some fruit notes but they are very faint. Really old leather bag and a box of matches. Also a wet dog who's been swimming in the sea. 
    • Taste
      Thick and oily mouthfeel as you would expect because I have decided to drink it as I get it and it certainly packs a punch. Call me crazy. Is it very young? I don't think so. It has age to it but not a lot I think. Citrus and banana pith, Victory V cough sweet. I think I described a Big Peat as smelling like the Balrog's breath. Well I can imagine this is what his piss tastes like and it tastes pretty damn good ;) 
    • Finish
      The finish is very long and just smolders well into the night. There is something sweet in the background . Almost like a liquorice all sorts sweet. 

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    How old is that - 3, 4, 5 years? More probably not.
    What kind of people who explicitly want young, light, peat, volts on their mouths. Then the 43 € are certainly well spent, otherwise not.
    Could also be a good base for "Celp - The Seaweed Experience", neat waterpist in and ready.
    Or as Islay Newmake replacement for own Fassreifungsexperimente.
    • Nose
      mineral, fresh, light, some white chocolate, strong smoke between medically, flower cut and scorched cable, neat white pepper; with water a little sweeter, creamier, milk chocolate, pear, cucumber and a touch of cooked onions
    • Taste
      huijuijui - creamy-milk-chocolate, burnt-bitter and very pale peppery; with water: less spicy, more milk chocolate, caramel, a hint of pear and apple compote
    • Finish
      Laaaang, hot, pepper, bitter greens ... the more water, the creamier-chocolatier

  4. Cubey666 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Quite a hard and heavy hitter on the peatsmoke. Misses some complexity, it's still a bit young and spirity. It misses a bit the full bodiness which is present at Octomores

  9. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Fine peated whisky. Has a somewhat wild character, clearly some younger whisky. Initially also fairly sharp / peppery, becomes less after the course.
    All in all a very entertaining dram.

  10. wisekycourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    lemon, iodine, smoke then peat, spices in the background! back of orange fruits and malt! .. and the strong alcoholic smell
    2nd:
    lime, intense peat, wet wood, orange peel, some glue in tube, and a herbaceous freshness.
