Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 

Light smoke in the nose, mildly antiseptic, lighter fruits.

 

Palate is nicely sweet and peated, nothing overwhelmingly so. Finish becomes more oaky-cedary. No magic here but it's nice enough stuff.

 
Andy
 

n: Candied tar and earth

 

p: Watered down iodine and minimal salt.  A dull peater.  Finish fizzles

 
Fuji
 

N: Peat, cinnamon, new bandaids, crushed peanuts, tangy/ tart fruits (lemons, green grapes and green apple skins) with sea salt.  Nice and balanced nose of peat, fruits and malt.

P: Sharp and crisp tangy taste with peat, fire wood embers, apples, and toasted malt

F:  Medium finish with a salty citrus rind bitterness (sucking on a salted lime wedge after taking a shot).
