  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Really, there's not much to say here other than that it's simple, but good.
    • Nose
      Very clean peat with some coal smoke, a bit subdued. Some tree bark. Hints of lemon and orange, and just the slightest trace of juniper. Pretty straightforward and by simply nosing this I wouldn't have guessed this to be cask strength.
    • Taste
      Straw and sugar barley, but then the smoke connects, with touches of bacon and black pepper in the background. Again, pretty simple this, but that's not a bad thing in this case.
    • Finish
      Warming and peat-y. Ending on a sweeter note.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    English Whisky Co. ‘Peated’ (55.2%, OB for The Whisky Exchange, 290 bottles)  Not much is told about this bottling, but the fact that TWE selected it is intriguing… Colour: white wine. Nose: fresh sweet peat. Smoked pears, a little patchouli, orange leaves, ashes, coal smoke. A little narrow, perhaps, but pretty clean. With water: same. Elementary peat, I’d say. Mouth (neat): sweet, easy peat, akin to that very young peater that Benriach had, called Bernie’s moth or something ;-). Tends to become ashier and smokier, though. The first steeping of a very smoked lapsang souchong. With water: fine. Finish: shortish, a little fruitier. I just couldn’t quite tell you which fruits we’re talking about. Comments: indeed, it’s smoky, but I find the body a little thin. Frankly, apart from Brora and Ledaig (and Glen Garioch and Jura at times), who managed to make some really great peaters outside Islay? Should all distilleries make peated variants or not? Discuss… SGP:645 - 77 points.
