I was at my parents house when my dad offers me a whisky, i take a look in his cabinet and see this sitting there so decide to give it a try. Now this is my first single malt so did not know what to expect but as soon as i opened the bottle i could tell i was in for something i never had before. As the cork came out it was followed by a flaming log the hits you right in the face. I go ahead and pour the glass as my wife on the other side of the room mentions see can smell it also. So i sit and have a sip. WTF is it meant to taste like that? was the first thing in my head. I jumped on to connosr and find out a little about it and yep that is how it is meant to taste. That log that hit me earlier is back with some friends and a heap peat.
I finished my glass not knowing what to think, not sure if i liked it or hated it but it did stay on my mind. It was about 2 weeks later when back at my parents when i asked my dad if he tried it and by the look on his face i knew the answer so he offered me the bottle which i gladly accepted. Another week later and i tried it again and this time enjoyed it a fair bit, got some different flavors a couple of times but my palate is not good enough to pick them up but mainly smoke and peat. Not long after the bottle was gone.
So do i like this whisky? yes but i do have to be in the mood for it Would i buy it again? yes
