Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 
Nose:  Light peat.
Palate:  Smoke, somewhat soapy/perfumey, wood and chocolate, light sherry, a bit of bitterness. 
The peat in this is a bit unbalanced, which is typical when peat is added to traditionally nonpeated whiskies.

B-/C+

Smokey peat and some harsh (not so much in a good way) cinnamon.  Still has that odd choclatey note that was more subtle in the normal version.  Still, this gets a slight bump for the cask strength....I would buy this before the standard peated.

Raw.  Mouthful of earthy cinnamon.
Ries
 

n: sweet smoke, ash, chalk. Rich nose of graham cracker, white pepper, and malted rye.

 

t: cinnamon, vanilla cream, and roasted raspberry. Exotic fruit, earth, and oily smoke comes strong in the middle - pushing aside the sweet malt flavours. Hint of banana and mango with BBQ char and dry tobacco in finish. I enjoy the high ABV and intense flavour - finishes hot and raw.

 

note: these releases do vary quite a bit.
