Tasting Notes

Appearance: Honey gold

Nose: Almost violent Mega melted butter baby vomit. peat, Peat, peaT, peAT, pEAT, and PEAT... Bacon, salt, pepper, cinnamon, honey-glazed ham, hot-buttered popcorn, slightly grassy, pound cake

Palate: Big heat Buttery sweetness turning to cinnamon fire, minty, dry, peppery, oak

Finish: Explosive, then long, steady burn, dry ashy mouthfeel. Like swallowing a tear-gas canister, the smoke permeates your entire upper body, and leaks out your eyes and ears. The mind disconnects from the body and you transcend the cosmos like Dave Bowman...

Conclusion: You won't be the same whisky drinker again after this one. The aftertaste stayed with me until the next morning and even my morning pee reeked of it. This is one exhilarating dram!

Congrats! That's the first-ever reference I've seen to a whisky's after-effects on your morning pee.

3+ years later, this is still the only reference I've ever seen to a whisky's after-effects on your morning pee!

Not Carl Sagan?
