The nose has brown sugar and oak followed by earthy almost mushroomy notes. The palate is quite different, sweet first, then quickly acidic, very acidic like it has a squirt of lemon. The acid massively dominates the finish on the palate, but the nose retains the earthy stuff. The acidic notes are so strong they really put the whole thing out of balance and give it a burning sensation that the first batch didn't have, even though the first batch is higher proof. Water helps give it some composure and mutes it a bit but doesn't save it. I definitely would not buy a bottle of this.

The nose has soapy bourbon notes, like a bourbon-bubble bath, then a touch of oak. The palate is caramel sweet with a hint of acid that grows into the finish but keeps some wood to balance it out. The finish on the nose is quite nice, like a good, oaky wheated bourbon. Water adds some nice vanilla notes and gives it some wood spice.

 

This is exactly what you would expect it to be, an oakier, more complex version of Heaven Hill's Bernheim Wheat Whiskey.

Nose: Great gobs of peat with some sweet sherry in the background.
Palate: Thick, oily peat with a slight sherry background.
Finish: Peat-o-rama
This is a great heavily peated malt in a sherry cask.  It tastes like the old, oily, peaty malts from a decade ago.

Great stuff!

Buttery.  Less peaty and more buttery than a typical Ardbeg.

N: Toasted malt, barley, leather, cloves, cedar and a touch of cinnamon.  All balanced by a light yet sweet sherry cask influence.

 

P: The sherry makes a big appearance on the palate.  Very astringent and dry mid palate with alot of dry oak, licorice and herbal notes.  

 

F: Dehydrated red fruit sprinkled with sea salt.  Lasting finish

 

B/B+
