Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Smoky nose.  On the palate the smoke continues, like a beach fire, along with some mild sweetness and other dimensions in small amounts.  Finishes the same at length.  Not a lot going on besides the smoke. 
Chris
 
Very smoky and salty with a sweetness that balances it out.   Raw and medicinal.   
Fuji
 

N: Bandaids and some floral aspects

P: Some floral stuff again but lots of smoke

F: Bitter tea

 
Ries
 

n: Salt brine, peat smoke, warm malt, and charred paper.

 

t: Very maritime: smoked salmon and seaweed paper. Dry lemon soapiness to the taste in the middle that I don't find pleasing. The finish is short - salty wood and dry. Smoked sea salt and paper ash are the main components here, quite sharp and disjointed.

 

Bowmore soapiness kills this one.  [C.]
