    Peatey. Hmm. If I think of it that way, it's complex and interesting, makes me think of peat (yes) and the smoke of a well-banked coal bed. If I don't specifically keep that context in mind...first smell was "dry erase marker," first taste was "that smell when gluing a carpet seam." I think this ain't my thing.

    Overly peaty tasting. Not my type of scotch. I love the regular 12 year Bunnahabhain, but not this.

    Nose has cherries and nuts with caramel, taste is Smokey chocolate, sweet with dried fruit and a soggy oak taste with a long finish

    Shout out to the Missus for getting me this bottle for our anniversary back in December, ’18. It’s almost as perfect as her. ;)

    Smokey, peaty, coastal, salty, but not medicinal like Laphroaig, not earthy and vegetal as Ardbeg. Strong black pepper. It's more of a smokey , but otherwise light whiskey - smokey and light seems like a contradiction, but that is the most apt description, I think because it is more smokey than peaty, and the lack of overwhelming peat let's the core flavors shine through. It's sweet, salty, some mild, dry, herbal flavors(something like oregano?)- it's like smokey sea water, mixed with just a drop of honey or butterscotch. It has a nice balance. The Distiller reviewer mentioned that it's like Islay, but with the sun, and a sunny day on Islay is just about a perfect description. Laphroaig and Ardbeg are more like a raging storm on Islay, but this is a sunny day on Islay. I really like this. Might have to buy another bottle once I finish this one.
