|Robert Karlsson||Excellent chocolate intermingled with potent smokiness. Really quite special. Under the surface, tar, licorice. Exciting rather superb nose. Taste mirrors the nose nicely. Attractive sooty smokiness, tar, and those chocolaty notes. At the end, berries. So enjoyable. |
|Craig Daniels||Nose: Vanilla and smoked paprika, some ointment, coconut, then fruity (strawberries and cream)
Palate: smoked plums, smoked rose petals and some sour fruit leather, lots of grip.
Finish: warming, smoky and with some astringency.
Comment: much better integrated than the Cab Sauv sibling. This time the wine,spirit and peat work well together to create a harmonious whole. |
|Krishna Nukala||smoke and peat- looks like laphroaig.Definitely some complexities behind. Sweet and spicy, lots of organics on finish- An explosive whisky.( Blind tasting notes MMA 2013) |
