The smoky creature.

Ladies, gents and connoisseurs of all things good,... there’s a new Whiskey collective in town that’s set to surprise and please our Whiskey senses and that it does. Whiskey Union proclaim themselves as a creative collective of Whiskey makers, visionaries and hedonists in pursuit of unconventional blends and extraordinary flavor sensations. While the established brands craft the Bentleys and the Jaguars of Whiskey—which is all fine and dandy—the fellas at Whiskey Union choose to break with convention, experiment with flavor and tread on the sporty side of things; they manufacture well-tuned Ferraris, so to speak, to keep your taste buds on the edge and your belly humming.
 
Smoky Goat—a blended Scotch Whisky—is the first of the three unconventional expressions they’ve released so far, the other two being Boxing Hares and Huxley. It’s named after the wild goats native to Scotland. It embodies the remote and rugged nature of the land and the tough, playful character of its goats (and people some would say). It’s a blend of 3 unique Whisky styles: sweet grain, body & character of a Highlander and smoke for which the Islay is famed for. Craig Wallace, it’s creator, envisioned the smokiest of blends finely balanced with a tinge of irresistible sweetness.
 
It’s handmade in small batches with three different cask types: refill, rejuvenated and first fill bourbon casks. It’s advised you serve it on the rocks so the ice slowly unleashes the smoky flavor. Our take? Smoky Goat is a most deserving homage to the Scotland’s finest flavors.

Randy
Randy,
Very interesting aftertaste, Scotch is not normally in my wheelhouse but was a good experience
 
John
John,
Not a fan. Too much “bonfire” taste for my liking
 
Christine
Christine,
Pleasantly sweet aroma - mix of vanilla and caramel, touch of smoke. Nice smoke in the flavor as well, though it doesn't compare in intensity to the smoke in a typical Islay single malt. Still very enjoyable - basically a sweet, subdued Islay where the flavor combination works well.

Jason,
Very subdued smoke. Bland vanilla and clarified butter with a sprinkle of pepper at the end. Good, but too subdued to be great.
 
William
William,
What can I compare this to hmmmm, let's say a less intense version of talisker 10yr which for those that haven't tried that tastes of that smell of smoke while not the most appetising sounding drink I will say it's cheap and some people like that sort of thing. If you can't tell already from this lacklustre review I can't think of anything to say, you know what the drink is meh there you go meh.
 
Steven
Steven,
I generally prefer my whisky smoky, peaty, briny, some true grit on it. As with all things with a description in the title, this is not as smoky as it would like to be.

John,

Jon,
Smooth criminal. I'm not a scotch fan due to peat, but this changed my mind
