Interesting fact… Birnie Moss Intensely Peated whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Birnie Moss Intensely Peated whiskey, instead of 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!

Not too bad but also nothing special. Drinkable but not drink animating.

The pale colour belies the depth of flavour! Strong peaty aftertaste with malty overtones. Very palatable and a snip at the price
