  1. karloff scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    This is one of those where you pour a glass and it stinks the room out but in a good way. Enjoyed what there was but it could have had a bit more to it.

  2. karloff scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger. 
    • Nose
      Smoked kippers, toasted brown bread, pine forest after rain and some smoked salmon pate. 
    • Taste
      There is a softness to it and there it almost has a strong cheese taste like Stilton. There is some liquorice root. This is straight up smokiness, nothing medicinal about it. 
    • Finish
      A short to medium finish with sulphur and gammon.

    The liquid inside struggles to live up to the description and the box design.

  4. peatbogger scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    Hard to figure out where this single originates from.
    • Nose
      Sweet and briny peat smoke up front. Cured ham.

      A little caramel, some yellow fruits and a dollop of citrus.
    • Taste
      Initially the peat hits the right spot, but it fades all too quick. Little depth to it.

      Feels a bit thin as it weirs off in a soft fruity direction, with some fudge and toffee in the back.
    • Finish
      Rather short of medium. Some ashy sweet and dry smoke and light spice.
