    In the end, it could be better if the degree would be higher. I like the fragrance, but with this whisky will not work to sit thoughtfully by the fireplace.
    • Nose
      A thick, oily aroma, alcohol is felt, spicy, peaty, but not smoky, damp earth, some clay, a burnt match, perhaps berries, strawberries, sweet herbs, later honey, vanilla. Very unusual.
    • Taste
      Light taste, sweet, bitter woody and mixed with peat, simple, tingling, harsh, young.
    • Finish
      It doesn’t end as pleasantly as it starts, simple, empty, steep, a bit of sweetness and wood, unpleasant bitterness and harshness of spirits are felt.

    Conclusion: a very attractive specimen, despite the fact that the NAS. Delicious, "drinkable", peat whisky for every day.
    • Nose
      The aroma of caramel sweetness, shades of vanilla, pepper, fresh pastries, foliage and pine needles. Tons of dry smoke fasten all this palette. Very good!
    • Taste
      Taste: sweet-smoked, peppery, a little salty, with a citrus note.
    • Finish
      Finish: medium duration, smoothly flowing, dry, sharp, with a high content of spices, salt and phenols (the sweetness completely disappeared). At the end of malt, oak and hot spices again.
