Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonSome spices, but difficult to get a grip on. Big fat buttery bourbony vanilla. Big mouth-coating vanilla, peppery and spicy (cloves). Smoke. Nice one.
Krishna NukalaRich heavy nose. Lots of complexities. Some heather and flowers.Some old classical nose. Restrained peat and smoke.Very sweet and spicy. Little dry and hot. Spicy and lava like talisker. Brilliant whisky. Blind tasted MMA 2012
