Member Ratings and Notes
Super f'ing peaty and good.  See my notes for the 2009 release, it tastes the same as far as I can tell.  [These notes have been modified to satisfy the silly requests of silly people, who shall remain nameless.]

Nose is an inviting peat smoke onslaught. Palate, wow, damn that's some good smokey stuff. The finish -- did I mention this is hugely smokey whisky? Big surprise, I know. Like last year's Supernova, this one almost requires a toothbrush to end the finish. I liked the debut version more -- particularly because of the tingle of powdered-sugar sweetness it has -- but I do like this for sure. Just make sure you're in the mood!


[P.S.  Silly is a virtue.]

Same interplay of sweet and smoke as the 2009 version.  I don't see much difference other than a bit less oiliness on the mouth. Rates about the same for me.
