Thought I wrote down some notes on the first half of the sample I tried a week or so ago, but now can't find them. Don't feel like trying to recreate them, but the Cliff's Notes version is peat, lemon, chocolate, tobacco, creamy. It slots in below the regular 16-year for me, but it's definitely nicely done. Thank you for the sample @Bourbon_Obsessed_Lexington!
I very much appreciated this drink. I've been looking for a bottle of it for myself. Only out for the past year, it's been a rough year and stocks seems to have dwindled. Understandable.
My own appreciation is only secondary to a more rare attribute this drink brings: the approval of my loving partner. She hates anything peaty, and I find myself torn between drinking the good stuff I love or kissing the one I love.
In this rare situation, she finds this an approchable introduction to the world of peated whisky. The Guinness finish adds a milding effect and complexity to the taste. The smell is still pure campfire goodness, but the taste has a sweet candy effect and seemingly no brine. Enough to woo the ladies, while still being manly enough to drink or even wear as an aftershave.
