This stuff is just massively drinkable. It’s a classic example of a peated whiskey that’s not too overwhelming in any aspects, very well balanced, and continually enjoyable. The smoke is still quite present, an earthy, sooty variety, but not at kick-in-the-crotch strength. I had the unusual pleasure of killing a bottle of this with a couple friends, start to finish, in one evening… and I still felt pretty good the next day. That’s gotta count for something extra.

nose is the best aspect, rather nice.

 

fruity (strawberry and raspeberry), very sweet — heavy on the red ripe fruit and vanilla cream. Apricots and clove spice w/ a thin mouthfeel/body middle into the finish. Overall there is a good measure of oak but the tannins don't dry it out until the very end. Very easy to drink.

n: grassy, snuffed match, paper pulp, buttery chardonay.

 

t: notes of peach and straw with a bit of highland peat to add complexity; clean and fruity. Creamy butterscotch and gentle oak presence. Overall this is light and elegant and put together well, but I like my whisky to have more charcter + bite to it.

n: golden honeysuckle, toasted oats, dry oak dust, floral.
 
t: wheat bread dough, more of the dried floral and standard honey in the initial. The middle is light bodied, w/ notes of dry oak and a hint of fruit (dried peach and mango). Refined but light, and surprisingly still on a grassy, youthful note in the finish. [Non-descript overall, B-/B]
