    Strange whisky, it seems like it's hesitating whether to be a peated or non peated whisky. The swimmingpool water experience at the end is quite surprising, though not very attractive.

      Initially a lot of fruit, less peat. After some minutes the peat and smoke come in clearly though.
      Also some earthy notes, moisty ground, moss. Then some bonfire smoke.
    • Taste

      Here it gets the typical peaty tones immediately, with some sal ammoniac and licorice, and a little pepper. Far away some fruity notes as well, orange, some smoke. Also some sugary sweetness.
    • Finish
      77 77
      Still a little sal ammoniac and licorice, soft and short. Some tobacco and some smoke. Then suddenly some chlorine, like a gulp of swimmingpool water.
