Tried this last night At At a Benriach tasting and was pleasantly surprised. Not by a "peaty Speysider" because they've been around awhile, but by the overall balance, roundness, drinkability, and the "size" Of It for a mere 40%! That said, I would love To try it at 46 or even 50%.

Packs a punch but not so much on the peaty side. Strong cereal flavours with a hint of marshmallow vanilla (luckycharms?) Agree with the beeswax. Unique but a bit too sharp and unbalanced for my Islay palate.

To me it is a masterpiece with a smoke of white choclate flavour !!!

Got a bottle of this after the praise it received from Mr. Murray and was quite let down by it. A rather thin, watery and one-dimensional malt, nothing much going on here except peat and leather. In a way reminds me of an Islay malt gone bad after too much oxidization.

If you like the Islay-peated malt,s than give this a try. Peat it is, but not from the sea-shore, but from a forest. Very fine malt, one negative: not too long finish.

This is a peated malt. My wife could not stand it (so it is not a girly dram).The palate is very interesting with acacia honey and a note of beeswax. Some fruity notes too. The palate really balances the peaty nose.For me it is 90/100.
