Tasting Notes by Freedomtoast
I started off not really liking peat. To the point that this was the one whisky I needed ice for. But after half a bottle of drinking this Scotch with ice, I had been converted to that peaty goodness and I must say, it is truly delicious.
The nose of this whisky is hard to describe because of the overwhelming amount of peat, but on the tongue it is a savory treat that is overflowing with smoky flavor that reminds me of jerky. There is something truly special about this Scotch despite the lack of "refinement" of its profile compared to those finished in Sherry casks and the like.
To me this Scotch may not have the subtle intricacies of others but it makes up for it in sheer amount of body and how full it is in flavor. There is no better whisky to enjoy by a fire while smoking a cigar.
