Member Ratings and Notes

n: Maritime rubber.  Boat hull


p:  Butterscotch, chili, brine, bathwater, gunpowder.  Strong and delicious.



A very powerful in your face nose with BBQ briquettes, iodine, tar and brine.  There is sherry present but it has a weird funk to it.  Smells of tarmac or tar that they tried to cover up by spraying sherry scented air freshener (do they have this because I would buy it!).  The palate consists of a full on peat attack with some pine.  This burned all the way down to my stomach.  I drink George T Stagg neat and I don’t even get that! B/B- 

Nose:  Sherry with vague peat notes.


Palate:  Sherry, light sulphur and peat.


Finish:  Sherried peat.


Very nice balance of sherry and peat.


Acrid and rubbery nose, sherried, some smoke.


Palate is kind of smokey and BBQ-y, then it starts getting hot. Sweetens up in the finish and lasts, quite strong in a young way, and there's the problem for me. Good whisky for sure, but it's just too hot and H20 didn't improve the enjoyment for me.
