Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 
n: wax, sea air, and parchment paper. Soft edges of smoke and vanilla bean. Wet heather and moss. 
 
t: smoke and char - quite different from the sweet impression from the nose. Middle is nice and oaky with even more hearty smoke and controlled phenols. Finish is driftwood campfire and salty. Nice whisky that checks all the boxes for a peated scotch that is intense without any sharp edges. Barley sugar and smoked grapefruit finish.  [B+/B]
