So you know what you’re getting into.
A vatting of Islay whiskys from Ardbeg, Caol Ila, Port Ellen, and Bowmore (plus other unspecified whiskies), this is an (obviously) extremely heavily peated whisky that still manages to find flavor amidst the embers. Curious aromas of the evergreen forest and mushroom lead to flavors of plum, tobacco, seaweed, and cedar box. Above it all, the character of freshly-struck matches.
Weird, yet compelling in the strangest of ways.
