    • Nose
      86 86
      Bacon, apple, peach, syrup, peat, dried lemon zest, vanilla, custard cream and butterscotch when left to stand.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Fruity, creamy, peat. Butterscotch, pinch of pepper and greasy.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Peat, vanilla, apple, peach, pepper, soft pickled meat and dark chocolate. The finish does not last very long.

    Combine Ardbeg (Islay) and Mortlach (Speyside)? It's like creating something like a retread tire. In my opinion, such a "miracle" should be disposed of, not used for driving and, importantly, taking care of my driving comfort and safety.
    And yet!!! Only a madman could think of it ... And he did it (and I will not be delighted with this tire)!
    It is more than good. When you drink you have a mish - you have it. Sweetness combined with heavy smoke, the delicacy of Danish lemon cake, too flavored (the one from the 90s wrapped in colorful foil), fused into one body, until it hurts from behind a late-fired, burnt shortcake taken from the oven, made with a manual meat grinder by my grandmother.
    And now "the icing on the cake". You add the minimum amount of water and you feel smoked bacon in your nostrils, and in your mouth the taste of ash and heavily burnt torch (charcoal?), All wrapped in a citrus T-shirt.
    The funniest thing is that I got stupid and I don't know when it is better in virgin standard or after splashing with water?
    • Nose
      90 90
      sweet, quite smoky, citrusy, slightly wet and stale peat
    • Taste
      90 90
      oily, slightly peppery, buttery, lemon zest sponge cake, delicate spring onion
    • Finish
      91 91
      very long, pleasant, with delicate chili chocolate and a well-baked biscuit

    This is an absolute belter!
    Bought at the Green Welly Stop when visiting and wish I had opened it whilst they still had it in stock so I could buy a back up or two.
    Perfect balance of sweet and smoke with glorious creamy mouthfeel. So good.
