Nosing: Medicinal SmokeVanillaGrapefruit
Medium peat, vanilla and a touch of fairly nondescript citrus.

Taste: Medicinal SmokeSweetHoney
Smoky arrival but not overpowering. Some honey sweetness.

Finish: Oak
Short. The peat dies off really fast leaving a dry oakiness.

Comment:
This release isn't bad, but it really isn't that exciting. The nose is ok, but on the palate it seems a bit half baked as it is relatively one dimensional and seems to be lacking a bit in intensity. The finish is disappointing, and if you blink you'll miss it. It comes at an affordable price though, and if you're testing the waters with peated whisky its a decent enough place to start as it won't blow your head off with the smokiness.

Finish: Peat SmokeOilSpicesVanilla

Comment: Not as intense a peatiness as expected, well rounded, almost a roast lamb smell to the nose, young slightly warming spirit on the palate, with bonfire smokiness, citrus and definite oiliness. Warming slightly oily finish with a lovely smokiness. Well rounded, a nice dram.

Taste: ZitrusOakPeat SmokeGrass / leafy

Finish: long

Comment: A young yet smooth dram with a pleasant kick of spice, wood & peat at the end. Though complex, not so rich. Citrus and vanilla fudge notes prominent due to the double bourbon cask aging. Slight salted nut & burnt stick tones.
