It's a reely Nice glass with peat and a lot of swetness afthertaste. I think it is reely a lot of re-used vasks here. It's a okei dram=) no sharpness balanced and rounded month fill.

General description

Nose: peaty obviously. Totally different from ardbeg or lagavulin. Medicinal. Apricots plums. Refreshing for a peated whisky
Taste: burns middle of tongue. Long after taste. Smoke and sweet peat. Very nice.

General description

Surprisingly sweet, especially at the beginning. it starts with honey and melon, plus a bit of grass, then it unfolds into heavy peat and salt. A little brine, and bacon, but all complimented by the overarching sweetness. The flavors are nice, though I wish it was a little less watery.

General description

A great combination of my favorite malts brings out one of the best blended malted whisky I have tasted! Nice but not overpowering peat and smoke makes this an everyday Dram! A few drops of water brings out some fruit for me!

General description

Really tasty dram. I knew I would like it based on its ingredients, 40% Laphroiag 20% Ladaig 13% Caol Ila 26% Ardmore 1% Highland. It's like drizzling smoked honey over smoked bacon and meat, without getting too greasy. Surprising amount of crispness, clarity.

General description

Subtle for a blend called Peat Monster. A good punch of peat on the front end, giving way to peanut oil and almonds. Smoke and a touch of chocolate on the back end.

General description

strong nose with oil, nuts and some bitter notes. when u taste it, the first thing you notice is the peat but leave it for a while and/ or ad some water and it settles down a bit. now you get a rich palate of earthy tones. with hazelnuts, smoke and peat but some dark chocolate as well. it all ends in a long, smokey and oily finish.
