Color
Pale straw
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.

Notes by memory from drams shared with karloff in Dufftown. Thanks mate!

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. 

Comments

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. 

Carrots may improve your vision, but whisky will double it.

Fijne geturfde whisky. Heeft nog wel een wat wild karakter, duidelijk wat jongere whisky. Aanvankelijk ook vrij scherp/peperig, wordt na verloop wat minder.
Al met al een zeer vermakelijke dram.

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Fumée franche. Un côté minéral et métallique, sûrement un signe de jeunesse. Très vif, puis plus doux. Pas très équilibré. Quelques notes de chocolat blanc donnent un peu de profondeur mais pas assez pour le remettre d'aplomb. Avec de l'eau, c'est mieux : le chocolat au lait s'affirme, le malt émerge et quelques fruits apparaissent.

Taste

Intense avec un coeur fruité, ce n'est pas facile à boire ! Avec de l'eau, c'est bien mieux ! Liquoreux et chaleureux à souhait, il est aussi très poivré.

Finish

Finale longue et fumée, végétale aussi. Avec de l'eau, toute aussi longue mais aussi épaisse et épicée.

Comments

Un whisky multi-facettes plutôt déroutant : difficile de lui attribuer un score global.
Je dirais :

 Nez et Finale : 2/5 pur, 3/5 avec de l'eau
Bouche : 3/5 pur, 4/5 avec de l'eau
Whisky n°1253
