Nose
Sharp and astringent with peat and coffee. Honey balances. Hints of malt biscuits, earth and medicinal notes follow along with charred beachwood.
Palate
Weighty and full with barley, oak and honey. When the peat arrives, it builds with a lightly medicinal character. Water makes it citric with the oak becoming grainy.
Finish
Long with sooty peat and medicinal notes. The peat is herbal with water and brings out a touch of kerosene.
Comment
It doesn't matter where it comes from, but great whisky is still great whisky.

Nose
A lovely hint of smoke which lingers on the nose and invites you in, revealing soft elements of dark sugars, warm sweet tea underneath. Great whisky making.
Palate
This shines here too with just the right level of smoke, oak and vanillas. There are red stone fruits hidden in the peat smoke and a sweetness which adds to the spices.
Finish
Delicate, long and lingering – smoked whisky that just works with and without water.
Comment
I can't wait to make a Blood and Sand with this, or drink with a touch of water.
