    • Nose
      100 100
      10/9 What even is this nose? Huge, extravagant, vibrant, and tangibly delectable. Waves of vanilla and huge fruit in the vanguard; something bright and citric, something marshlike and reeky lurking at the edges. Banana, grapes, hearth fires.

      8.5/9 Good lord, you'd never know this was 60.3%. Comes in so oily as to slip over the tongue, but once it settles in, you get more banana, and then BAM! there's some high octane shit right at the end, with the expected Islay peat-brine-sod notes. // Improves measurably with water, but provides a different experience. Less strange, more vanilla char and fruit. Smooth, fat, excellent.
    • Finish
      80 80
      The finish is an afterthought on this powerhouse.

    • Nose
      Peat and smoke. Behind the smoke is the smell of caramel and forest fruits.
    • Taste
      The high ABV quickly withdraws. A door opens to a gentle sweet dram.
    • Finish
      Medium sweet finish.
