Member Ratings and Notes
Nose:  Sweet malt and medium peat.
Palate:  Very nice sweet peat notes, fruit juice. 
Finish:  Peat smoke.

Very drinkable.  Not complex but good fun.  B/B+ 
Nose is kinda winey, with a fishy note and a tangy quality. Palate is mild sweetness with moderate smoke and some minty hints, peanuts, and subtle but definite complexity.
A nice PE with character that's not exceptional, but very good and fun.  B/B+
N: Something slightly over-ripe in the nose, settles a bit into salty peat with a hint of mint.
P: Light and spicy peat, dry and somewhat 1-deimensional.
F: Iodine. 

N: Burst of flowers, cinnamon candy

P: This could be a watered down Kilchoman.  Thin and weak.  Charcoal in water.  Somehow highly pleasant and quaffable.  Peppery finish.  B/B+


N:Cinnamon, cloves, lush green vegetation, light brine and warm glazed ham

P: Sweet peat, limes, dark chocolate, cloves and fresh cut trees

F: Sticky briney finish and crustaceans

Lots of character, I found something different every time I nosed and drank it.


N: Moderate peat, lightly waxy fruity notes, some maltiness. Very very light brine.


P: Medium mouthfeel; malty; moderate peat - a little bit of pepper and some mustard; a touch of hay, slightly dry. 


F: Warming, with a slight mustard and shiso note. Big malt, gentle peat. A little dryness and wood.


Not long on complexity but totally enjoyable.
