Not surprising that it's outstanding
As you'd expect, this is outstanding. A really excellent whisky behind the peat, and really nice peat. You can read all about the tastes, flavors, and aromas from others, so just confirming you can't go wrong with this at all. One thing - I'm not really that partial to the really peaty whiskeys, although I love single malt the best of any drink. But this stands out.
It was a gift
Can't review this product as it was a gift to a family member. I know he loves this whiskey.
Fantastic stuff of course. We like smoke, and there's not a lot else that can compete.
