Member Ratings and Notes

Nose of peat smoke and iodine, charcoal. Palate is light for a peated malt and for what the nose advertises. It's smokey, yes, but it's almost like... coal. Weird mouthfeel. Somewhat sweet whisky at first, but it quickly gets dry, both flavor-wise and physically. The finish could use improvement. This isn't that bad at all, just not that great... and considering the price, you could do worse.

N: Oh, that's a peaty SOB.  Raw and smokey.
P: Very oily and heavy, fatty meats, almost makes me feel tired.
F: Cloying peat, cough lozenge.
