Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 

N:  A very peculiar nose, little peat and lots of leafy greens, organic.

P: That's very bizarre, quite some extractives from the cask in this one, lots of green wood along with the peat.
F: Menthol, drying.
Despite being very unique it is just a good malt, the weird aspects perhaps detract as much as they add.

n:  Peppery cinnamon candies

 

p: Big Red and Doublemint gum at the same time.  Wood coals.  Delicious.

Delicious and a bit different for this distillery.  B+/A-

Nice fruity nose. Palate has green apples, mints and a bit of iodine.  Minty finish with just a bit of licorice.
