3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy hazelnut brown, some floaties from the bottle, zero foam or lacing. Not very pleasant to look at to be honest. Aroma is much better - rich fig, almond, vanilla, molasses, mixed with peatiness and alcohol from the lagavulin. A bit heavy but interesting. Flavor is somewhat sweet, similar notes as the aroma, but with the sharp smokiness of the lagavulin featured more prominently. This is a sipper, certainly not something i would drink regularly, but it is unique and interesting in its own right.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 9.3 OZ bottle into a snifter.
Aroma- Strong aroma of whiskey and some smokey malt
Appearance- A strong brown colored brew with a lot of sediment
Taste- pretty good whiskey flavor mixed with the smoke, pretty unique experience for me up to now.
Palate- full bodied with a sticky texture
Overall- First whiskey brew, not bad but I think this style will have to grown on me as I experience more of it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Vintage 2005 - Big rich malts, cereal and big oak notes. Cloudy brown with no head. Lots of apple sweetness, tons of oak and a long sweetness. The scotch doesn’t show up at all, although I do get barrel notes. Nice, but not the beer I was expecting.
