    Given its turbo charged in small barrels it not to bad but the strong cough syrup cherry flavour not for me.

    The 18 was a very decent dram. This is a Jura, Arran and other combination...not so great.

    The 1st release i was not a fan of. I ordered this by mistake..so it was placed in the crap pile. It us a worthy member. Initial hit is a jumble of sweet lightish peat but the aftertaste..blargh

    Not one for me but well executed. Apricot mild cherry, I can see why people like it but to sweet for me.

    Sweet maple syrup bourbon and a lowly 83 is the expert review and I concur....

    The non-distiller reviews were poor but it's not a poorly constructed dram. Very light ethereal peat...only 11pm but not that bad albeit from low expectations...

    Operation 'Clean out the crap' has commenced. First I herded all sub par crap into a pile. 30 most likely average/sub par samples into one pile with an occasional sprinkle of good drams I've already tried... the remaining 100 should be pretty good ones. Like my son who even at 5 is a big believer in delayed gratification (always eats the stuff he hates first and saves any treats he gets for an absurdly long time - seriously how many kids can holding off eating a stock pile of lollies for weeks?), I to am a big believer in tackling anything I don't want to do as soon as possible like painting the bathroom and ripping up the carpet today. I annoy my wife intensely by cleaning all the dishes and cooking utensils as we go sometimes before she's even finished with them.. Anyhow that was a very long winded way of saying this was a chore to drink. It was unusual and the completionish in me couldn't help but buy a sample...but I knew it'd be at best average and it was. The nose smelled like when you open a sterile medical supply, iodine but not in a good Laphroaig way. The palate wasn't terrible just odd..light sweet something or other. I think after tonight's run my sink is going to throw up..but rather it than me and my stomach...

    Hmm..for the price decent effort but not really up my street taste wise. Sweet oakey candish.
