Peat on steroids - you either love it you don't. I love it. Worth a bottle.

Martin,
As a novice peat/smoke drinker I enjoyed the flavor. It is as described: smoky, peaty with a bit of oil. A very small splash of water to cut the bite. Nice aftertaste. Although this wouldn’t be my everyday dram this would be a nice change of pace.

Pepper , phenols with the seaweed weren’t my thing.

Michael,
As a novice scotch drinker (i'm more familiar w/ bourbons and ryes) I enjoyed the heavy smoky notes in this... I can;t find it for sale anywhere, can someone recommend a similar scotch? I hear smoky is a common note in certain areas.

Thomas,
Never have been much of an Islay guy. Just can't seem to enjoy the Leary, smokiness and this experience was no different. Probably not fair to be too critical of something I just don't enjoy. Very smooth.

Amazing Islay Scotch for the money - nothing comes close. Cask strength and I prefer it without added water - it's absolutely IMMENSE in the mouth!

Not bad, just really don't understand the draw of cask strength. That being said I am a sucker for smoky and peaty

Good strength, very smoky, and earthy. Mellows out beautifully with a few drops of our giver and killer...water.

Michal,
Intense, long developement, smoky, oak, oily, cooked spinach, very pleasant intense smokiness, sweet at the background, without water was very dry, and sharp, with smokiness eventually coming through and then staying for long time.
