3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very smokey whiskey on the nose. Pours with a thin lacing.
I am struggling with this one (writing as I drink), on smelling it I thought they had over done it on the whiskey and could have blended it back a bit, but on second thoughts... Definitely TCP/medicinal notes, which normally I’m not a fan of, this beer may sway me though.
Very peaty and earthy on the finish which I like. For 11.4% this drinks very easily, and is quite balanced. For me that is the most impesive part.
Overall, I’d certainly have this again, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

Sour with notes of the peaty whisky, like a glass of red wine gone bad with some ashes tipped into it. Looked flat, but had a nice color. Poured it down the drain after drinking half of it.

[10/4/13] Bottle shared at a tasting at chriso’s place. Thanks harrisoni for this bottle! Dark brown with a bit of beige foam. Boozy aroma of whiskey, some smokiness, some iodine and some dark fruits. Sourish oaky flavor with malt, dark fruits, whiskey, smoke and iodine. Medium to full-bodied. Weird and interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle thanks to Menno at Kent BF 2013, drunk at home. Dark brown beer, thin beige head. Malty peaty smoky aroma. The caol ila is a little stronger than the pure tcp of the laphroaig. Some chocolate as well. It’s interesting. I mean I love the straight Rasputin and there is still some of the base beer here. The peatiness is interesting. I mean it’s got a lot of islay whisky character. Not my favourite, but hey it’s drinkable enough and for such strong flavours, it kinda works. Kinda wild but kinda constrained as well given the strong flavours on display.

33cl bottle, DSG and jsquire tasting at Chris’. It pours a deep dark brown body with a medium beige foam. Aroma is straight whisky with salty notes, charred oak and some leather. Taste is full on the smokey whisky notes with more saltiness. A tad watered down body and good carbonation. Overall, this is interesting but the barrel did no good to it.
