    Okayish but it's not all about peat - I don't understand the high pricing - 3 years old? Common this looks like a hysteric hype about Japanese whiskies
    • Nose
      Some peat and smoke (heavily peated?), little honey and vanilla
    • Taste
      OK, yes, now it's heavily peated - actually mostly peated only and not that smoky, means more phenolic and bitter notes - let's add massively water - well, water helps but not many more aromas
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, a tad bitter
