Other reviews.... Anything but one dimensional as the peat performs circus acts here to entertain: from the high wire with an ethereal gristiness rich in molten sugar, to earthier, head in lion's mouth phenols that rumble a dull roar. And the delivery is a cannonball firing you some distance. The tannins hitch a ride on the malt's natural oils and an aplogetic degree of vanilla. Oh, and did I mention the sublime late spices. 48% Alc./Vol. 92 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2023
