Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of peat, smoked malt, some burnt wood , fruitiness and malt. Flavor is sweet and peated with some fruitiness, malt, wood and whisky. Medium body, soft carbonation.
Bottle sampled at omhper, thanks.
Lasting light brown head. Clear dark amber color. Huge peated malt aroma. Smooth whisky taste and some caramell taste. A bit too much harsh smoke. eduardovl (1490) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014

The beer description is:
"This hand made Ale is brewed with the very finest ingredients, great care and respect. The Ale is matured in oak Whisky casks which creates a unique, aromatic, exceptional flavour."
Wood: Bourbon Oak
Whisky: Scotch Malt
Age: 10 years
Region: Islay (55* 51’ N / 6* 06’ W)
A: Looks pretty much like the 35 (the first I’ve tasted). A dark brown color and a huge beige head when poured. Medium retention and many lacings left
S: Very woody and Whiskey in the nose, impressive. Much stronger than the 35, also quite smoked
T: Follows the nose: wood, Whiskey, caramel, roasted malts, yeasts. Quite smoked and whiskey aftertaste. In overall it’s a bit sweet and smooth taste. Mild bitterness. Pleasant
M: Medium body and carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel
O: Delicious beer. Resumed into three main axes: wood, Whisky and smoked malts. A big difference in the taste from the 35 to this one. Whiskey is much more present in the 10. At the same time that it improves the taste, it decrease a bit the drinkability
