      Full lots of peat but not over powering.

      A couple of months ago, I tried my first Ancnoc, the Flaughter.  Although somewhat two-dimensional (peat and sweet), it was well balanced and enjoyable.  I was looking forward to the Cutter because the peat is turned up a bit.  Unfortunately, neither the extra peat nor the dram as a whole worked for me.  While the peat is not exactly turned up to 11, it nevertheless has the effect of overwhelming all else.  What's left under the peat is a non-descript mix of flavor from which I can't pick out much of anything.  And where the peat in the Flaughter is quite pleasant, the Cutter's peat is more of a bitter ash.   The Flaughter is a nice whiskey, but I'm not sure who the Cutter's constituency is.  If you like balance, nuance and complexity, it's not for you.  And for peat lovers, there are far more agreeable and interesting options available.

      Another wonderful peated scotch. This is a tick below the big Islays imo. That being said this still delivers lovely smoke and malt with some bread dough and oak. Finish is where it drops off. Doesn't last all night like most smokies and a little too dry. Im a fan though especially at closeout price of $36

      Surprisingly complex after the phenolic nose and straw yellow coloring. The right amount of heat for an enjoyable dram.

      This taught me that there actually is a thing as too much peat. great for adding a bit to other scotches though!
