One of my first peated whisky, some say it’s a gateway to Islay. Very nice non-medicinal smoke, lots of black pepper and sweet notes throughout, very nice mouth feel despite the chill filtering, well balanced well-made dram. Would love to try a CS version of this or the Talisker 57 North. Highly recommended to those who are looking into trying out peated single malts.
