I bought this as part of a three pack of minis about a year ago. My brother-in-law had managed to get me a bottle of Laimrig and I wanted to try a few standard bottlings before talking a cask strength expression. I tried all three and I when I got to the Laimrig I didn't feel like they even came from the same distillery.

Now, going back to the partly filled bottles that I think I gassed about a year ago, I can sense a little similarity on the style, but certainly not the substance.

Nose: Neat, spirit, floral, perfume, hint of peat. With a few drops of water, peat comes forward more and there is a hint of syrup.

Taste: Neat it is at first hot, unpeleasant, burning. Dilute flavour with a "fuzzy peach" aftertaste. Water sweetens it and interestingly makes the mouthfeel more substantial.

I didn't finish this dram, like last year, and the last 10 cc are going to be mixed with something...
