Peated Blended Malt — Scotland

4.0
4.0 out of 5 stars
This was one of more than two dozen whiskies I sampled at the Whisky Show, so don’t expect nuanced notes or a meaningful rating. What I can say is that it is very different from its Ardbeg-led predecessor and perhaps as delicious. I got two distinct pulses of flavor - a blast of peat followed by a wave of richer sherry notes. It’s an unusual two-step structure that suggests this is a sequel akin more to Godfather II than Jaws: The Revenge. I eagerly await an opportunity for a more considered tasting.
