General description

This is not a "starter" whiskey. There's so much going on. Smoke and rich flavors combined for a wild ride.

Nose

smoke, iodine, fruit

Palate

oily, rich, needs a little water

Finish

warm and lasting flavors

General description

Peat bomb from the go. You can get hints of sweetness from the sherry influence, but it comes and goes, while the peat powers it way through the palate all the way to the end.

General description

All a single malt from islay is cracked up to be and a bit more. Simply amazing for only having spent 5 years in a barrel in Scotland.

General description

Bit of a gimmick.
An intense barbecuey whisky built on a barley character. Subtle sweetness, little depth. Overpriced for what it is.

General description

Threw a drop in a nosing glass tonight and it was divine. Smoke and peat as promised but theres something entirely different on the nose that i cant pinpoint.. Further shots are needed. The sip is so good, bursting with smoke and floral notes. Very bold but smooth as hell. Will update as i go

General description

Immensely smoky - but overpriced for a one trick pony. Gimmick Whisky.
