DSG (5615) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle. Clear deep golden with a medium white head. Aroma has light smokiness, malt and a bit of caramel. Slightly unpleasant sweet flavor with some honey and some very lightly smoked malt and vegetal notes. Light to medium-bodied. Not so good and not a very smoked "Smoked".

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 4, 2009
Bottle (in NZ). Pours a crstal clear amber with a thin white head. A neutral malt in both the aroma and flavour. Slight notes of smoke and whisky sweetness in the finish - but that’s very slight. Easy drinking, though a little thin.

Stew41 (1722) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2009
Smoked? Dunno. More like a Vienna or amber to my tastes. Rusty amber in colour with zero head retention. Nose shows subtle (weak?) caramel and malt character, and definitely no smoke. Palate is fairly run-of-the-mill with slightly clunky and slightly heavy malt treatment that falls away very quickly in the back palate. A little spicey peat to finish and I’m trying hard to find that!

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2009
Bottle, 5.0%. Weak caramelly aroma, no smoke. Clear dark golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is also caramelly. Once again, no smoke. Slightly sweet, but OK balanced. Medium bitterness.

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 18, 2009
Bottled(330ml). -Pale amber coloured, medium sized off-white head that went away fast, dusty honey nose. Sweet malty, caramel, honey and sugary taste without any notes of whiskey or smoke. Old Nessie was better.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - FEB 17, 2009
Bottle: pretty malty, some honey notes, some cherry notes, only faint smokey notes, some biscuity notes as well, nice cirtusy hoppy bitterness, medium bodied, pretty nice, i quite enjoyed this one.

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2009
Pours an exceptionally clear amber body with redish highlights and a non-existant head. Nose shows trademark peated malt, albeit rather mild with some gritty, earthy honey. Palate has significant malt, which brings with it some honey sweetness. Peated malt pops up again and delivers more dry, earthy characters. Not bad, rather similar to innis & gunn oak aged.

Choos (590) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2009
Aroma: light smoke lots of malt. Appearance: rose gold amber with a smallish quickly dissipating white head. Vanishing taste and the barest hint of smoke. Palate: thin.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2009
bottle 33cl beers of europe. Great red body, good colour. However, a bit disappointed with the thin taste. Proclaims to be smoked but I couldn’t taste it. Not an overwhelming whisky taste even though you would expect it to. Honey notes but not much else. Not bad but not great...
