This one comes in a very pretty can with an even prettier bottle. No filters, no paint and at 46% this is a nice example of standard. Matured for 10 years in Bourbon and Sherry casks and the colour is just beautiful, reddish gold.

Nose: Tropical fruit, especially mango, roasted nuts, sweer vanilla, meaty peat and some mild sunflower scents After a few minutes I get white bread and pipe tobacco smoke in the background too, really wonderful nose:)

Palate: Big sweet peat,bre barley and thick smoke, not medicinal like Laphroaig or Lagavulin, no iodine like notes here, but round and sweet. Also very nice spicy yellow pepper in the arrival, Its BIG. It develops into cashew nuts, buttery croissants, charred oak, strong black tea and cherryliquor

Finish: Peppers! its quite hot at 46% but in a nice way. No burn, but a charming warming glow. creamy barley, nutty vamilla flavours and fresh oak and a little smoke return and linger for a while with fine wet seasalt in the end.

This is whisky that is completely my taste, absolutely wonderful! This bourbonny peated smoker with some sherry undertones hits the spot and its one of my favorites now. Its medium expensive at €48,- but worth every drop/penny. Should be quite available-ish, but I had a hard time finding it.
