It's a solid representative of its time of distillation, and age has treated it well, but I do like for example Airigh Nam Beist and the 1975-2000 more. I am a bit reminded of Port Askaig 25 which is better and cheaper if you can find it.
Off to the hospital with some bandages, medicinal notes, sweet and discreet citrus, and smoke, a tiled stove that stopped burning a while ago. It's really well rounded and nothing's off, but it could be a bit louder, perhaps? Still, I'm more impressed than with the 19yo sometime back...
...But herein lies a problem: While the taste is much as the nose promises, a discreet refill casked affair that lets the distillate shine, I am missing some oomph or complexity, either one would do. It's a sweetly citrused affair where the peat isn't dominant, but more just one of equal elements. The body isn't as firm as I hoped.
Mostly carried by the peat since the citrus leaves early, and there is very little else. It's nice they haven't beaten this to death with aggressive casking, but if It's like this at 46 and something %, and is fairly expensive, could we get it at 50%?
