    A young but unexpectedly rich malt, not at all banal and capable of entertaining.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very marine, so much so that you can close your eyes and almost believe you are on the ocean shore. Peat is a polite, fleshy and herbaceous presence but without overdoing it, softened by a sweet and fruity profile of vanilla and ripe banana. And... mushrooms?
    • Taste
      87 87
      On the palate, the embers have been stirred and bring the ash component back to the foreground, without neglecting that sweet and (almost) delicate aspect found on the nose that not even the remarkable gradation can break. Next to the herbaceous and smoky peat, in a peculiar balance given the youth of the whisky, you can still find vanilla, yellow fruit and sweet malt. Pepper. Oily and full, without edges.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is long, used ashtray with malt and dried fruit.
