The nose is full and pungent. There are notes of heather roots and wood smoke. A dark peat with notes of copper and pine oils with a touch of gentle sweetness from the barley malt. The palate is quite rich and powerful. There are notes of toasted oak with notes of pepper and the smoke thereof. Notes of toasty cereals and supple peat. A wistful ash note builds. The finish is long and hot with pepper and a leafy green note.
Good Whisky doesn't have to be expensive
I'll need some more bottles to be sure but...
...I'm pretty sure this very subtle drink will be my "standard" bottle.
I can't say much about the aromas (for me it tastes like a good, peaty, well-rounded scotch) but I do know that I like it better than many (loads) more expensive ones I've had and it makes me wonder which other pearls are still left to be discovered. Thumbs up, I guess I'll be making a detour when I finally get to visit Islay!

A very nice peaty malt, not as heavy as my favourite Ardbeg . But I have enjoyed so much that I will get another bottle. I found it slightly sweet and smoother than your usual peat Malts. Very nice and well done Robert Fleming.

This proves the above. Very nice for people who like some smoke but are not up for a hardcore Laphroaig or other peat monster. Here the peat IS quite powerfull, but the rest of the palate is very smooth en the (cereal) sweetness rounds of the smoke in the most pleasant way, making it more approachable. What a steal!

Very soothing the smokey oak resonates upmost.
