Benjamin
Benjamin,
An interesting one, some classic dark sugar flavors but with some fruit on the backend. Nose - caramel, bright fruit and grain. Taste - starts with light caramel and ends with an unexpected fruit note, like strawberries and flowers. Finish - pleasant floral finish with no burn at all.

The Blend was my favorite of amongst the Grain, and Malt tasting box. Enjoyed the softer finish compared to the Malt

Nakeva,
Initial taste is smooth but then becomes to smoky/peat. Since it doesn't show in the flavor profile, wasn't expecting it and after taste was unbearable. Has potential but not my favorite.
 
Richard
Richard,
I smell mild peat and taste mild smoke, although this is not in the flavor spiral for this scotch. I think it is delicious, this is probably the best peaty tasting scotch I have had. I prefer the sweeter and more smooth and subtle Exceptional Grain but this is delicious and it would be great as a peaty scotch in my home bar.

Hella good. These guys know what they’re doing.

Wesley,
I received this in my oncea 1/4 tasting box. I used a whiskey tumbler instead of a Glencairn for this one. Nose was sour with some peat. Taste was not as sour. Still a little tart. Finish was medium. This one isn’t for me either. Their are other whisk(e)ys available that are more of what this is for a lot less money. My advice is try a sample before buying.
