  • Intro:

    I tasted this dram blind and then got the reveal at a later time, so keep that in mind as you read through these notes.

  • Nose:

    sweet cream, butter, light oak, fresh baked bread. light pepper, faint mustiness.

  • Taste:

    honey, caramel, light smoke. faint ash. good deal of burning wood, minerality, ethanol bite and lime

  • Finish:

    long, but very hot. lots of caramel, ash, minerality, lemon and lime.

  • Overall:

    Reminds me of an Ardbeg but it's not smoky enough.

  • Score:

    6
