Member Ratings and Notes

N: Mint, eucalyptus, and some tropical fruits.
P: Really interesting stuff, quite vegetal in nature (green and leafy notes).  Herb encrusted lamb.   Fairly peaty.  Oily.
F: Gets more dry in the finish, with lots of lingering fruit and spice notes.

A rather strange one but I really like it.   


N: Pencil shavings, cedar, green apples, kiwis, and pineapples with mints

P: vanilla, toffee, honey, peanut brittle, grassy, bits of peat and dried fruit and bitter choclates

F:  salted caramels


n:  Cedar and leather


p:  Cedar, apricot, potpourri.  Hot, punchy and awesome.


Nose:  Sweet malt with some pine and some green wood.

Palate:  Malty, woody, 

Finish:  This is one of the few whiskies where I'd say the finish is stronger than the nose or palate.  As the malt forward palate slips away, it reveals all sorts of flavors, sea water, ocean breeze, caramel, some piney notes.


If the palate were as flavorful as the finish, this would be in A- territory for me.  As is, it's a strong B+.


N: Old dried fruit

P: Hard to put finger on, other than: light fruits
