  1. This is a whacky whiskey. Big iodine, big peat, very thin body, weak color–like urine if you’d drunk a lot of water; or to be more pleasant, sauvignon blanc.

    So I made a blended whiskey–not of the whole bottle. One-to-one with a dark citrine, heavy weight, Auchentoshan.

    Delicious. I shall do it again…and again…
