Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of smoke, silver polish, and b.o.  The palate has some interesting stuff besides the obvious smoke, and I'm not sure how to describe it.  Some of it's kinda minty, some is vaguely chemically.  Finish is long and gets hot, with some soap.  This is an interesting smokey number that's somewhat distinctive. 

N: We've got some peat!!  Searching for anything else, searching, hoping, nope...just peat.
P: Oh my, what a surprise, peat!
F: Long and....guess.
One dimensional but does a pretty good job at that one thing.


n: Olive oil and potting soil. Pretty strong



p: Typical peater, leaning earthy. Wattery mouthfeel. Holds up well to the entry level Islays. Nice butterscotch and earth finish.


Good deal.

N: Moldy decaying wood, black peppers and sour fruit. Kind of farty.
P: Dark rubbery peat and smoke
F: Tarry, bitter woody finish
