    Tasted at TopWhisky.
    Even if it is not typical Big Peat, it is a very well executed age statement anniversary bottling.

      A very gentle Big Peat.
      It smells a lot more matured than most of the NAS releases.
      The peat is rounder, more mellow and not as "raw" or sour.
      This allows for more fruit and wood to shine through.

      Same as on the nose.
      Round and well matured Islay.
      Soft peat, very little sea/salt.
      It's a "tamer" but more sophisticated version of Mr Peat.
      Less citric, sweeter.
      Rich and fruity.
    • Finish

      Not drying, fruity, maybe even a bit nutty at the end.
      Could have been a bit longer, but it's very nice.

    Pretty disappointing stuff...
    To me, this has no upside compared to the regular NAS bottling. On the contrary, it's lacking the powerful profile that gave the brand it's name in the first place. This one may be more balanced, but it's also boring.

    A profile very bourbon, which hides a little everything else. At 10 years old it is quite robust, vanilla, wood, caramel, but the peat is not as strong as I would have thought. She is there yet, marine, heavy, fresh, pungent. In the mouth, the markers of bourbon are a little invasive, where are the characteristics of the whiskeys of this island, which I appreciate very much? The finish is good though, relatively long.
