General description

For me, this is not a good first dram of the day. It's a pretty heavy flavor to me, however, following a smoky blend like Johnnie Walker Black, it was not bad at all. Also for me, I would not consider this to be a daily sipper due to the heavy earthen peated flavor which to me has a hint of a taste of kerosene (which I guess makes sense because peat itself is basically a fossil fuel).

Nose

Lots of smokiness, but more of the peated kind, not so much the wood smoke kind. Bits of honey or vanilla penetrate the smoke toward the end of the nose.

Palate

Peat smoke throughout, vanilla and honey or almost a creaminess on the very tip of my tongue. It seems like the longer I hold it in my mouth, the more I begin to pick up on lemon, and the more smooth tasting it becomes. If I hold my mouth open and take a breath while holding the whiskey in my mouth and on the middle of my tongue the more pronounced the lemon becomes.

Finish

Smooth smokey and citrus. Again though, the finish reminds me of the smell of kerosene.

the nose is a nice ash smokiness, with citrus notes aswell. in the mouth is sweet, with that peat coming in slowly. The finish is actually quite nice, more citrus ash and a nice vanilla note. Not a lot else really, too much caramel in this, and not enough alcohol to make it memorable. but for the price point it's good value!

This Scotch was my introduction to Peaty/ Smokey scotch.
It's really good but the bottle seems to loose it's smoke a bit over time.
When you drink from your glass, the smoke lasted about 15 minutes. Bowmore made me fall in love with Peat/Smoke. And it's an excellent introduction to that.

The pepper overpowers the maritime qualities. Generally feels to have less character and balance than the NAS No.1

Maritime salinity presents at first, a light peat and woody pepper in the background. Subtle floral hints, Heather maybe?

Strong oak core, much more present than the No.1. Coastal notes over a peaty smoke. Hints of a gentle citrus.

General description

If you you do not like smoke, do not buy it. It was my last try of those islay style whiskys. I gave it a try because all reviewers said that this is a light peated on. Well, too peated for me. The points are for the salty sea smell, which i kind of liked...

General description

A lower key Islay, but still with lots of band aids and iodine. Not a pleasant nose, but makes up for it in the finish.

Nose

An Indonesian hospital

Palate

Malt and sweetness, although one dimensional

Finish

Medium long, peat and smoke, warming, the finish is the most pleasant part

Wunderbarer Islay-Whisky

Zarte Rauchigkeit die perfekt mit Zitrus- und Honigaromen harmoniert

My sample is very pleasing, smokey but not overbearing. A nice change from Laphroig or heavier peated whiskys. Will definitely try this again.
