Nose
Intense astringent peat, iodine soaked bandages, salt and slabs of malt. Agricole dried fruit, treacle, tar, thick cut orange rind, coffeed wood spice, medicinal herbs and violets.
Palate
Thick treacle, prunes, walnuts, liquorice and dried fruit. Medicinal, smoky with a lovely peat intensity. Neat, the sweet malt and stewed tea balance.
Finish
Long, smoky and earthy with lingering peat, treacle, winey, pruney dried fruit and medicinal notes.
Comment
Absolutely stunning. If this is the distillery I think it is, it continues to impress me with its releases.

Nose
Big, and very bold indeed, this has a great mixture of spirit and oak. It clearly isn't old, but neither is it immature. Think dark cherry jam on toasted rye bread.
Palate
Disconcertingly drinkable at natural strength, with water this beast is tamed to reveal rich cinnamon and cardamom spice, some drying oak tones and Texan ‘burnt ends'.
Finish
Hot and spicy without water, but with a dash there is sweetness mixed with rancio notes.
Comment
A direct and robust whisky, but it is no joker. Much more Ali than Tyson Fury. Pair with a cold bottle of beer to tame.
