Been there and done that with Islay whiskeys, so peaty character in this one wasnt nothing extraordinary, thou very pleasant and interesting. Roasted malts, peat, some smoked qualities, some coffee, lovely choco, licorice. Light carbonation highlights sweetness, thou theres moderate roasted bitterness as well. Lovely and interesting brew, but one timer

Darkest brown, sift of brown film and decent ringed filmy head. Hot smoky, sticky plaster and twisted dates for nose. Initial taste is lean stewed berry and earthy bark before a sweet but soft iodine buzz. Firmer viscosity than the others and a sweeter, grittier finish and lean TCP linger.

Bottle, Mikkeller Online, Sake Monday tasting

zenkis (650) - Ogre, LATVIA - FEB 28, 2015
Interesting BA version with notable touch of leather, viskey, herbal. Weird visky alike flavor with herbal bitter from not hops, peated malt complexity. Thick, sirupy sweet, huge maltiness, dark balsamy-caramely, creamy backbone with deep, gentle but persistent roast flavor. Pleasant sipping brew with "not used to" finish, compared with burbon edition this one is one or two points less.

GenDV138 (2861) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2015
330 ml (Green Keith Shore BA Brunch Weasel label) bottle from Mikkeller Shop mailorder, poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Jet black with thin tan ring. Aromas of big scotch and peat, smoke, subdued chocolate and coffee, . Tastes of mostly scotch and peat, some smoke, subdued chocolate and coffee. Medium-full body with a dry finish. Okay, better as it warms. Definitely a sipper with the huge scotch and peaty notes. Islay barrel takes too much of the base away.

bursprak (1161) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle, side by side with Brandy BA. Pitch black pour with a small tan head. Nose has loads of peat, sheep, wool, fishermen and other weird stuff. Taste has some light peat, roastiness, ground coffee and some licorice. The barrel character of the Islay barrels compliments this in a fine way.
