- Very nice whisky, full, firm, balanced. To enjoy!
Strikingly strong alcohol in the nose. Pretty much peat but also citrus. Grassy / hay. Also coffee, and light tobacco (smoke), pipe tobacco especially.
Salmiak, liquorice, some pepper, tobacco. Sweet, caramel, honey. Wood fire smoke, spicy.
Pepper still, wood fire smoke, and spicy. Something sweet, honey-like. Wood tones now. Long aftertaste. Licorice now also continues.
- N- Bold, lekor, seashell with citrusy lemon. Fishy liquorice like Scott's emulsion fish oil. Interesting smokes honey emerged, comes along fresh baked bread, roasted nuts and warm pancake. Plenty of leafy notes as well, sweet mint and menthol arises overtimes, some antiseptic lurking, as well the fine cardboard notes, which normally quite off putting. Rubber and buttered vanilla and wood at the tail. This is a real treat the the nose.P- Solid and velvet, was expecting a surge of multi-flavours judging from the aroma, which didn't comes thru. Rather soft on palate, lemon zest with thick hazy sweet smokes that speaks loudly with some salts underlay.
F- Medium. smooth sweet leafy smokes all over the place, with returns of diesel at the back. Not as brutal and heavy as I hoped, but a quality one nonetheless
— at Home.
- Medium aged refill matured peated whiskies can be beautiful, if they combine their rawness with sufficient maturation. No vanilla and wood driven whisky, but a spirit driven blockbuster.
A 15 yo peathead on refill, could be very much to my liking! And yes, it works! It's quite "naked", spirit driven, but the wood has had its time to do the job of taking the roughest edges off. Still quite austere, with sweet lemon drops, boggy peat, seaweed, grass, and almonds. It's all well integrated.
The attack has many associations of sweetness, though the alcohol wipes everything away when undiluted. With water, it's much better, what remains is spiciness at the end. The associations I get are honey, malt, again sweet lemon drops, salty peat, wood smoke, almond and quite some pepper. The integration is a bit less successful than on the nose.
The finish is long, and pleasantly spicy on pepper, clove and lemongrass. Further, the salty peat is somehow combined with salted almonds, and for the rest there is lemon juice, and cut grass.
- peat, smoke, iodine ... later more malt ... later more sweet dough taste is sweet malty ... some earth in the back ... full and free punishment long full finish with some pepper, bitter earth
very light in color ... sir
- A rather round and sweet peat and iodine dominate, also a little coal. The farmer side of PCs is totally absent. The integration is not great on the nose. Very beautiful texture of the mouth that is sweet too, powerful, the middle shows a smoke of wood fire. Final in a very peppery tingling, always dominated by a fat peat. Dilution is needed to access this dram and get the best. The mouth is clearly superior to the nose for me. Swims very well.
