"Strange, incredible stuff here, a bit like really young Kentucky Laphroaig or distilled Rauchbier. A big nose of BBQ, bacon, smoke, and hay. Behind that, there's some apple and even hops. On the palate, there’s smoked ham and grass, mint, and something similar to peat. This strange and unique whiskey is young, but is well-executed and very enjoyable particularly if you are adventurous. "
