3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A malty, somewhat soapy aroma. The flavor is much better than the aroma. A bit too malty, relatively thick, this is a decent scotch.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very nice reddish-brown with a nice, sticky off-white/pale tan head. Nose is toffee and raisin, notes of oak, whiskey, mild hoppiness, dark fruits. palate is good, with that nice sweet oakiness present in the mouth. There is a gaping hole in the palate unfortunately, right as the sweetness fades, but before the bitter and spicy (hops? peat?) finish begins. Feels incomplete.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. BB4 Mar 2010. It looks like they have toned down this monster to a manageable 5.0%. Dark copper. Thin head. Aroma of dark Christmas cake and rum (says whisky on the bottle). Taste is dominated by alcohol and dark fruit. A hint of peat in the finish. Alcohol flavour is much stronger than the ABV although there is not the alcohol warmth.
