Member Ratings and Notes
Andy
 

n: salty, fresh pine lumber

 

p:  sweet and salty almonds, not unlike some better Caol Ilas.  Faint charcoal.  Incredibly quaffable.  Gently peated.

 

B/B+ 

Ries
 

Surprisingly easy to drink. Salty Mexican chocolate, charred steak fat, cinnamon, and hint of BBQ sauce. Buttermilk and charred wood in a softer, sweet finish that lingers for a long time.  [B+/B]

 

Ardbeg Kelpie (46% ABV): 

same as above, just not as nice and lush. [B]
