    • Nose
      85 85
      Salt liquerice hits immediately. Smoka. Medicinal. Then more enjoyable notes like Apples and Jam. Engine oil and eventually earthly / moss.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Big mouthfeel. Strong. Apples. Some minerals. Smoke. Salt liquerice again. Barley. Quite spicy and citrusy.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Oaky bitterness. Peppery. Long and mouthcoating finish. Still some fruity flavour. Salt liquerice through and through. Citrus and eventually smoked ham.

    Bold malty spiritdriven whisky. The oak is almost invisible, just sorting out the badstuff from the distillate. Lots of malt, the peat is not overpowering - some fruits and spices. Not very complex, but layers to be unwrapped. Takes water well and turns very drinkable. 88 points.
    • Nose
      Feinty newmake at first nosing. Malty and lots of hot spices. Feints disappears after a few minutes, transforms more farmy and stablelike - alcohol not very aggressive. Very malty distillate driven nose. Pooridge, cereals, bread dough. Spices: Pepper, chili, ginger and nutmeg - light whiffs of corrosive smoke - pepperspray (how do I know...).
      With a pinch of water: Nose turns fruity on lemon and grapefruit, malt more in the background. Smoke and hot spices becomes more obvious.
    • Taste
      Sweet bold citrus attack - lemonpeel, fat malty sensation. Greasy coating mouthfeel. A little green and grassy - bogpeat smoke. Alcohol just a warmth spreading in my stomach.
      With a pinch of water: Palate even sweeter and grassier. Lemonpeel. Very drinkable.
    • Finish
      Medium grassy and citrus - Long on bogpeat and pepper.
