Nosing:
Light Smoke. Slightly sweet smell develops. Does not burn the nose hairs like the (Islay whisky does) Biscuit smell slowly develops - on the second nosing.

Taste:
This whisky invites you in with the slightly sweet chilli taste then burns your tongue like there's no tomorrow! Burning! Mouthwatering if kept in the mouth without swishing.

Finish:
Warm pleasant finish after the burn subsides. Warming to the stomach.

Comment:
This is how a whiskey should be. An excellent combination of heat and sweet. It's not obviously sweet but there's enough of a hint there to balance the chilli heat smoke. Has a much more rounded, balanced taste than say the Laphroaig 10 & Ardbeg 10. One of my faves!

Nosing: Strong peatiness, hint of the seaside but not so apparent

Taste: Citrus, caramel, spicy?

Finish: Long, really long and warm

Comment: Arguably one of the best bang for your buck single malt whiskies available. Price depends on your location though.
