On tap at BBF’12. I guess they used Bunnahabhain Toiteach, because this was one big peat monster. Anyway, really nice to see this whisky barrel used for H&V. Black colour, thin beige head. Aroma of hard roasted malts, loads of peat, earth, iodine, sweet whisky, chocolate. Flavour is sweet, earth, peat, light ash, light iodine, sweet whisky, chocolate, hard roasted malts, peaty finish. Medium to full-bodied. Great.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep dark body and brown head. Alcoholic aroma, roasted coffee, bourbon, dry cacao, concentrated. Rich flavour, alcohol and enough bitterness still. Refined sweetness. Great stuff. Thanks Menno/John!
Also had on tap at Borefts 2012. Even more alcohol and wiskey aromas. Too much for me. No.
