Intense peat, dirty and muddy, chimney soot, in the style Laphroaig but with much more ardor and a little awkwardness. Green apple and citrus, vanilla and lots of peat smoke. May look like the Cask Quarter Quarter Cask Strength. The mouth is relatively soft on the finish, not very discrete, however, based on green peat and a fruity background of citrus fruits and oranges. Whiskey offers an interesting sweet side, vanilla is also present and hides a bit of the harshness of alcohol and this whiskey a little young and impulsive. The finish is a little short and lively, the alcohol hiding a little more discreet flavors. But on a cold and snowy day in February, we have here a very appropriate whiskey.
Intense, tasty and, if not really complex, very tasty and very well balanced. Nose: "Yellow" peat coated with extremely intense smoke. Palate: Oily texture. Intense liquid smoke, covering the peat and a hint of spicy and peppery barley. Finish: Long and tasty, marked by peat smoke and spices.
Another young malt, by his livid pallor. Nose: Peat smoke rather assertive and fieffée, which does not leave too much the rest of the flavors to express themselves. Palate: Honey and fruity and spicy sugar full mouth. Nice fire of spices long awaited of this cask strength . Smoked peat here takes the back seat. Final: A little short but very pleasant, marked by spices and a return of smoke. Balance: Already an excellent whiskey, but which is likely to be even better to drink in cold weather.
