    An Octomore that is not a crazy complexity but that provides in the mouth an immediate pleasure for those who like peat a little sweet. The nose is in my opinion a notch above the mouth. The finish is the longest of all the Octomore I've tasted.
    • Nose
      Obviously peaty and powerful, a little closed at first. Then opens on a good dose of honey flowers, grilled chamalow and a touch of melon. A little wax for furniture type "Cedar", becomes gradually more greedy with malted barley butter, pistachio and thick cream.
    • Taste
      The smoke invades the mouth and explodes on spicy notes. The mouth is oily and the honey of flowers is very present in the middle of the mouth. Lemon and stem of flowers brings a bit of freshness and bitterness to the whole.
    • Finish
      Very long, peppery, malted barley and pistachio smoke.
