Nosing: Peat, sweet/salt smell of the beach, band-aids (plastic kind, not the cloth ones) seeweed, kelp and well made collard greens. sweetness is there, but nothing particular that I can identify. This smells like medicine. Peat Smoke Sweet Salt Maritime Notes Iodine Seaweed Sweet

Taste: Bam, the smoke hits you first, with the seaweed and iodine a close second, no fruit or chocolate taste in this one, just smoke, salt, a little sweetness, it tastes to me almost identical to the way it smells. Not super complex, not overpowering, but significantly original. This is truly a like it or don't dram, and I like it. I like it a lot. Peat Smoke Bonfire Smoke Iodine Seaweed Salt Sweet

Finish: Nice long finish that drags on with the same smokey, medicinal, iodine taste. Not chemically, like many cheaper malts, but with the honest nature of the whisky. This is nice. Medicinal Smoke Iodine

Comment:This dram was my introduction to peat, and I still love it. With that disclaimer, I like this as a simple islay, there are no multitude of hidden flavors, like Lagavulin, Ardbeg, or Port Charlotte.... This is a simple dram that is pleasant and predictable. This is my daily dram, unless of course I wish to taste something for review prior.

Nosing:Peat Smoke Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Ham Iodine Iodine Seaweed Salt Sweet

Taste: Peat Smoke Peat Smoke Ham Bonfire Smoke Salt Sweet

Finish: Peat Smoke Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Salt Salt Iodine Seaweed Sweet

Comment: Like BBQ’ing chicken/pork and inhaling the smoke from the BBQ deeply into your nose. Then once the charcoal has cooled, you douse it in whisky and lick the ones that have soaked up the most drippings from the meat. A wonderful mix of smoke, with salty/iodine-y/ brinyness with a HINT of sweetness. Smoke lingers on your tongue forever. I don’t know why I like it, but I do. Excellent.
