    The nose is quite in your face, but I don't really like the smell. Something is turning me off. Get's better after 10 minutes. It tastes better though, but a bit thin. Smokey, iodine, some bacon. Short aftertaste.

    This wasn’t quite the “monster” that was promised, but it still delivered. Like a handful of peaty whiskies, the people at your table (and possibly adjacent ones) will smell this. While this is perfectly good on its own, it does absolute wonders as an additive. As a big peat fan, if I’m not particularly feeling a whisky, a bit of this in it can carry it right up to enjoyability.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Smoke, earth, flowers, medicinal. After being in the glass a good deal a Ledaig funk comes out.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Salt, smoke, spice.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium-long. The salt turns savory and ends up somewhere like a cured meat, smoke fades out a bit earlier than the rest of the finish persists.

    The expected monster is similar to Pokemon, quite light, reminiscent of something between Big Peat and Ardmore. But I will choose Big Peat than Pokemon.
    • Nose
      Some kind of dense, but light peat, lemon, algae, iodine, salt, earth, it looks like something on Coal Ila, and Ardmore. There is no powerful wave of a bonfire or tree, more earthy and marine, in this whiskey I felt damp.
    • Taste
      Sweet oak-iodide, peat, everything is simple.
    • Finish
      Long, bitter and iodine, oak.

  10. Dram Brigade scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Elegant peat whisky that worth a try..
    • Nose
      85 85
      Peat, smoke, brine, vanilla, pear, grainy, iodine
    • Taste
      85 85
      Peat, weak oak. floral, sweet and salty, smoky
    • Finish
      84 84
      medium short, salty coal, some pepper and sweetness
