    I'm not a fan of the real smoker. Especially not when they are younger. But I try to evaluate neutral. One of the classics, I have to take that seriously. PS. For smoke lovers price performance one of the insider tips
    • Nose
      85 85
      On the nose rather med. Smoke but not dissuasive.
      If fruits, then for me more lemon, minimum vanilla.
    • Taste

      Can that be salty? Clear lemon and the smoke covers the rest with me. Not unpleasant. No. Perfectly OK.
      The 48% push on it. Boom.

      The flavors stay hidden behind the smoke but are relatively pleasantly fading away. Just in the middle. Good standard. Must give the ordinary grades. Clearly.

    • Nose
      Peat, smoke, gouache, sea freshness, ash, tar soap, an old ashtray, lemon pulp, tablets, a hint of vanilla. 21
    • Taste
      From medium to full-bodied, moderately sweet. Powerful. Smoke campfire, pepper, ash, sweet apples, barely metallic notes, medicinal herbs, sea salt. 21
    • Finish
      Long, warming, smoky-peat, iodine is added to the very end. 22

      The classic whisky from Ayla, powerful and smoky. Balance 21.

    On the nose, peat smoke! and lemon !!
    On the palate, citrus fruits, salt, peat, ubiquitous!
    In the finish, same aromas, simple, but effective!
    A peaty whisky from the parent company, one more, without excess, without real novelty!

    F: light gold N: varnish, linseed oil - interesting and spicy G: the unpleasant variant of solvent, thin, some smoke A: long, sharp, sweet - perfume + H2O: even more perfume - heaven!
    Unfortunately, I do not have the first batch of "Quartercask" available for comparison, but I think it was a lot better.
