    Well ... very intense maturation. The PX barrel well worked. Surprisingly salty too.
    • Nose
      Very interesting. Salted caramel, grill spice mixture, burnt BBQ, citruses, coffee, pepper and camphor
    • Taste
      Powerful. Sweet peat, salted meat, chili, tannic oak, pepper, citruses, plum jam and sherry
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, meaty

  8. Shane_IL scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This was astoundingly complex for just 3 years aged. The best term I can think of to describe it is hearty. It was full of beefy, savoury notes and not half as aggressive as I’d expected. The peat profile here was quite unique too.

    nice cask strength, but next to other CS drams it is at the bottom. In itself a beautiful dram
