Whisky Reviews for Peat Chimney 08-year-old Wy

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.33 points

  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Quite ordinary peated blended malt, which I, however, liked much more than the Spice King. Young and fruity on the nose and quite smoky and coastal on the palate.Showing good balance and being quaffable, this expression is a good introduction to peaty malts.
    • Nose
      Smoky, noticeably young (dough, yeast), fruity (pears, apples), some berry sourness (gooseberries), malt, vanilla, grapefruit zest, honey notes
    • Taste
      Rather coastal with salty brine feeling, tarry ropes, iodine, cold bonfire ashes, apple mash, caramelized lemon zest, soft oak at the end
    • Finish
      Rather long, sweetish, sooty, with walnut shells, leathery touch and finishing by bitterish oak

  2. Bosi scored this whisky 78 points Specialist

    Definitely not bad whiskey, rather unspectacular. The label "Peat Chimney" is less true. The smoke is subtle, but always present as a base note. A few flavors romp about without the whiskey becoming too complex. A few vol.% Would certainly do this blended malt well.
    • Nose
      Surprisingly, the nose has little smoke. This is dominated by pineapple, pear, leather and an aroma that I have never discovered in any whiskey: paprika.
    • Taste
      The taste is a little more smoke, if still discreet, tastable. The whole thing goes in the direction of ash and earth. The texture is rather watery and honey comes into play over time.
    • Finish
      The finish is short with a slight sharpness, lime and an Ardmore-like smoke.
