  1. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    This is inane... Single cask 21 years, yes I've had something like this before, bit never with this level of peat. This is almost #Longrow territory. Frankly it's delicious... But it and don't question why.
    • Nose
      The nose is intense mechanical oils, peat, soft malt, crushed florals, sweet Sherry, loads of rich malt... Tucked I to the folds is oak spice and hints of animal fodder.
    • Taste
      Oh man, the palate is rich and malty, maritime notes and the sherry comes flooding in... Huge tractor grease and mechanical notes, tea tree oil and mint.
    • Finish
      Finish is is super long. Drawn out peat, slow oak roast and spice twinges. Loads of Oloroso malt and depth. So long, drawn along mechanics toolboxes and more tannic notes.
