    very good and unique stuff, but get a sample first.

    • Nose
      wow! now this is something very new! and it´s good!
      curried nuts, kitchen herbs, asian food shop. then it opens up, the curry notes move into the background and it gets fruity.
      the peaty notes are very different to what we are used from scottish peat.
    • Taste
      neat: despite the high ABV it is mild on the tongue, even soft but still
      there is a mighty attack with a bowmoreish fruit and peat mixture.
      no, wait, that´s not bowmore there is something bourbonny in the middle. peated bourbon? or is it peated rye? this is nonsense of course but you see it´s hard to describe because it´s so unique.
      bvery interesting
    • Finish
      long, spicy and  warming

  2. fritzbrause scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    very very unusual nose. more like a very spicy rum than a whisky. smoke is hidden pretty deep behind sweetness and spices. with some air some peat gets in the nose. the palate has a big peppery bang on the tongue which gets pretty fast quite nice to a sweet and spicy peaty candy stick. sounds strange and it is. it's very very high quality malt whisky and you may not compare it with scotch malt. it is a league of its own. a great experience with loads of unusual aromas. love it! 90 points by me!

    Very typical whisky this is, which makes it very interesting. Peated in a whole different way as I'm used to, but very pleasant. Bourbon-barrel influences are dominant, with this peat and spices at the side giving it full character.

      Hm, very interesting this one... It's clearly some peat I'm smelling, but not peaty as I'm used to. Some leathery kind of peat, some strange sweetness comes along, like marmalade or something.
      And herbal, spicy. Later on some hints of tobacco. Weird nose, hard to describe, completely different from a 'normal' peated Scotch or something like.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Yes, very intense! Lot's of spices and pepper, the peat moves more to the background. Hardly recognizable as peat, but still some mix of hints of smoke and tobacco. Along with predominantly some sweet tones, honey. Powerfull smoked liquid honey I would describe it, if it would even exist ;-).
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still pungent, long finish, still some slight smoke and tobacco, spicy and honey sweet.
