n:  Not heavy on the peat as the finish is more pronounced.  Lacquer and saltwater taffey.

 

p:  Spicy and vibrant. Red hots and white pepper.   It's a bit like a less-subtle aged Port Ellen.  The finish is full, sweet, and briney (maybe the only peat influence.

 

B/B+

n: Great.  Candied peat in a floral breeze.  If "The Sound of Music" was peated... 

 

p:  Chewy flavor although the mouthfeel is thin.  Great gently flavored sweet earthiness.  Highly quaffable, but you do notice the watering down.  The beast in me wants to try this at cask strength, of course, but I can sit back and sip this in a rocking chair for now.

Aged in a French Oak Red Wine Barrel

n:  Musty almonds

 

p: Hits hard but doesn't define itself.  It feels and burns like a high ABV whisky but no flavor except perhaps for a white pepper finish.  I think the red wine barrel was a bit too much for the spirit.

n:  Taffy.  It's mostly faint and neutral

 

p:  Not much going on.  Reminds me a bit of Johnnie Black.  Perhaps with imagination you can find caramel and sawdust. Meh.

n: A pile of fallen autumn leaves with a hint of cinnamon.

 

p:  Spicy and earthy.  Christmas spices with red hots and damp dead leaves.  This is a great blend of sweet and peat.  A little sweeter and it may have landed in the A range.

 

B/B+

n:  Fireplace ashes

 

p:  Candy (unhot red hots) and ashes. Actually it reminds me of a higher-end Kilchoman without the same punch.  Nothing spectacular but it hits above its price class.

n: The coconutty nose from good grain whisky is definitely there, but there is more complexity "in the air".  Marshmallows?

 

p:  Sweet with a hint of watermelon jolly rancher.  The mouthfeel is thin, but the flavor is aggressive, with a quickly tapering finish. 

 

Fun.  B/B+

n:  Rusty iron and leather

 

p:  Soft and earthy with an intitial light hit of cherry.  This is an easy sipper, highly quaffable, and I imagine I would down a lot of it without thinking much other than that I was enjoying a relaxing time.  It's not in-your-face fun, it's more like a summer night on a rocking chair talking to grandma.  For relaxing times, make it Vellichor time.

 

B+
