    Colour:
    Pale gold
    Nose:
    Yellow fruits, maritime, peaty-smoky and gray-mineral with a hint of vanilla. Medical, dry, straightforward and overall "greener". Very nice old nose with a metallic undertone!
    Taste:
    Brilliant! Spicy, maritime, spicy peppery and full on the palate. Dirty and smoky-gray with plump salinity, but also dark-fruity with plums and blueberries - absolutely inspiring for MORE! The peat unfolds unchecked and the "old school" note is like a board on the tongue - absolutely great!
    Finish:
    Long - still smoky-spicy, dark-fruity and dry-peaty until it stops. Underlaid with a sweetness that is more and more due to Torfsud - great!

    Very austere and funky, not everyone likes it.
    • Nose
      Very dirty, sweaty, bready and malty, then some high esters appeared, iodine, damp cloth, overheated milk.
    • Taste
      Coal, bitter oak, plain, orange, old style islay.
    • Finish
      Earthy, long, some cardboard
