What's in a name? Birnie Moss Intensely Peated whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Birnie Moss Intensely Peated whiskey, rather than whisky.
A slow drinker with a very long after notes of peat and a hint of age old oak . A must for any home
Alright, bad pun. Actually, I bought a bunch of 3cl samples. When I first tasted this, I thought it was one of my more expensive explorations. Then I came to this site to verify. Wow! What a surprise, what a value! On the nose, I detect the peat, of course, though not as overpowering as the name might suggest. I detected moss (is that relevant to the name?), a biscuity malts. On the palate, the first tastes were, for me, cereals, maltiness, with the peat and smoke arriving late, but strong. The finish is smooth, warming, even a little spicy. Yes, this is indeed a remarkable value!
