Matured in Tasmania with none of that artificial or industrialised behaviour this is a cask strength whisky enriched with peat

  • Nose: grassy, floral, smooth by any standard given the ABV, gentle earthy peat, juicy stone fruits peaches and nectarines slowly opens up to reveal some vanilla fudge. With water big time vanilla and Turkish delight, peat was gentle before it’s really not there at all now, more tobacco though.

  • Pallet: pretty hot as expected, but it’s not savage, it is spicy as in chilli, but fruit notes are there, peat is still gentle and even some vanilla little big of sea spray as well. With water spicy arrival, more nectarine there now, peat more prominent in the development, earthiness is still there, provides nice contrast, beautiful candied vanilla.

  • Finish: Vanilla fades out, ginger, almond and some tobacco smoke fades out, nice spices to a cigar finish! With water mouth filling, vanilla dulls down to end pretty savoury and earthy, not much tobacco here this changes a lot with water, there is almost a foosty note

  • Mark neat -8.3, with water – 8.5.

Really good stuff, id look out for this where-ever you are. This is another whisky favoured by Jim Murray, who gave it 92.5

Thanks for a slew of very nice reviews tonight. I hope, for the sake of your good health, that you didn't sample them all in one night!

@WhiskyBee to right. No no definatley not in the same night. Although all the recent australian reviews were one night, and all those Islay numbers were a different night
