Well this is certainly smoky in the Scottish sense. Tons of peat in the aroma and flavor (Islay Scotch), which unfortunately always reminds me of formaldehyde. I can’t get past this. If you dig on peaty scotch you may enjoy this. As for me, I’ll pass.

Dark orange body with a small white head. Whiskey aroma, so the taste. A bit watery. It gets worse and worse while you drink it. A bit disappointing

21/07 GT at Richtar Jakub, 0.5 l bottle. It poured clear orange body with tiny white head. Whisky aroma, peat and ash, not alcoholic though. Nice peat flavor, slightly acidic, only some touch of caramel and cheese noted. Medium in body with long finish. Very simple, almost exclusively peat, which I did not adore, but still managed to be pretty nice.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Beige lace, clean brown body. Peat, big time, almost like a pleated whiskey. Bitter astringent taste and more peat. Really not my kind of thing.
