    Peat, white pepper, light sweetness, simple and straightforward. Used it in godfather cocktails.

    Quite simple, yet balanced. Overall for peated whisky better stick to Islay

    Blind tasting

    Oily in the glass, very light color, reminiscent of white wine.
    I tapped on Islay (young Caol Ila or Lagavulin), possibly finish in a sweet wine barrel, for example. Moscatel and ABV of about 50%, and about 35ppm

    The resolution as an Ancnoc really surprised me! ????
    • Nose
      86 86
      When smelling, the alcohol stings refreshingly easily. Then light fruit, salt, smoky smoke
    • Taste
      87 87
      The whisky tastes sweet, reminds me of apples and apricots. Slightly metallic teen. The smoke tastes slightly greasy here too.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The finish is quite long and bright fruitiness and cold smoke remain after more than 10 minutes.
