The mouthfeel is full and rich with deep tones of wet peat, lemon zest, and a bit of orange blossom honey on the back palate peeking through the smoke.

— 👍

— A wonderful dram. Feels like a punchy Caol Ila 12!

— TL;DR: excellent, but taxingly intense. Very light colour, has nothing to do with rest of the drink. First smell very meaty smoke. Like dry smoked ham. Very pleasing! There’s maybe something below the smoke, but it’s hard to say. Taste is amazing. Before even tasting anything there’s some preliminary mouthfeel, that’s very nice. There’s still the smoke obviously, but the taste is surprisingly complex, notes of wood, caramel, leather and tingling of the tongue. Enduring taste that develops long after taking a sip. One third of a drink down and my head starts to feel a bit odd in a good way. What a buzz. Halfway done had to take a drink of water and put some in the whisky also. Much less intense after that but also loses some of it’s charm. More like an ordinary whisky after that. Once a week kind of an experience probably. Might have been a mistake to test this at 10AM on a working day.
