Member Ratings and Notes
Very dry, smells like the inside of a wooden desk drawer...Lots of smoke and peat, finishes hot but with a sweetness that compensates. 
Quite an onslaught on the palate with smoky sweetness that's all over the place -- but in a great, adventurous way.  The peat and d'Yquem-fueled sweetness (at least I think that's what it comes from) are constantly fighting for the forefront, and what others might see as a lack of balance I find really enjoyable.  And it sure doesn't taste like 59% abv.  More to love every time I drink it.  A/A- 
I had this after some strong peaty whiskies -- so I noticed more of the sweetness.  Very complex and full-bodied.  A great deal.  

Butterscotch and lobster.  Port Ellenesque. Thick an delicious. Red hots.  Love it!
