Peat-malted barley brough in from Scotland, aged in sherry barrels and air-dried Oregon oak. Jim Murray has written effusive reviews of this whiskey and essentially considers it just short of mind-blowing. The Society didn't quite agree with Jim -- some of the peat-heads in the group sung its praises highly, while others were less impressed.
Nose: Peat n' smoke Palate: Clean, peat with some sugar, followed by smoke and iodine. Finish: Long with some emerging campfire notes. Overall: It walks the line and I struggled to decide which side I was on. I decided to like it.
