3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is quite the looker, I like that deep dark color and tan head, lovely. The aroma is quite boozy and peat. Peat is very present in the taste as well and that’s not really my cup of tea. Also some licorice and even some cherries there, with a nice subtle bitter ending.

Aroma is strong with bourbon notes and vanilla. Also some Laphroiag tones with sweet tar. Flavour is a bit messy with licorice, some smoke and sweet tones. If this is Jack Daniels, this is rather brilliant islay simulation with all the peat and licorice.
