Member Ratings and Notes
Nose is nearly non-existant, difficult to detect faint waves of cinnamon and oatmeal.  Smooth, weak body.  Finish is the only interesting part, smoke and spice comes rolling in in a pleasant wave.    
Oily, light peat, nothing else.   
Lightly peaty and that sweet Irish tang that is hard to hide.....Not great, not bad. 

n: faint nose of light smoke (like burnt paper), more of breakfast oatmeal with black raisins. I get a hint of vanilla and a light malty citrus wax.


t: Sweet wet grass with some dry wood smoke. This does have a nice oily mouthfeel and an easy to drink sweet taste. Middle is back to the waxed citrus. Finishes with wood char and hint of burnt butter. 


[C+/B- tasting the 2014 version]


A thin oil mouthfeel that quickly developes into a one dimensional hit of peat that clearly deviates from the scottish tradition. Not necessarily in a good way, but it's fine to drink.
