Nose: From two feet away you can smell the floral smoky complexity. Flower petals, floral oak, oily Ledaiggian smoke, lovely meaty gristiness, smoked aged meat, orange and lemon peel, dry floral oak, something slightly rancid but in a good way! More developing with some interesting soap and bubblegum (any other whisky that would be a major off note, but this pulls it off).
Taste: Dry arrival, floral oak, lots of sharp sour lemon juice (in a good way), grapefruit, a little lime, almost a little fizzy, then more oily, gristy, chocolatey, slight meaty note like aged smoked meat, white grape, white florals and some minerality like a good white wine. A little too sour to begin but develops very well.
Finish: Long length. Fucking good! Really very long. Very complex. Oils, lemon peel and a little juice, layered and evolves. Some amazing leather, dark chocolate and roasted coffee but balanced by the lemon and floral oak. There's a little interesting soap note too.
Finished for 2 years. What a whisky, and what a finish. Immediate buy if you happen to be in Mull. Pick me up a bottle or two for me as well would you? Thanks. (Side note: this was my 700th whisky!! Whoo!)
