    Powerful and racy!
    • Nose
      91 91
      The nose is complex despite a cereal attack (puffed rice, a bit like an Oolong blue tea). Alcohol swells the muscles: it is full, powerful and omnipresent. It manages not to be overwhelming, leaving other aromas to express themselves: peat of course, but also ash, dried fruits and even some citrus fruits
    • Taste
      90 90
      The mouth is clean, but powerful and dominated by alcohol (its 64% warned us). However, it remains fresh thanks to the acidity of citrus. It is the moist earth (humus) and the cold ash (without being unpleasant) and the dried fruits which compete for the good share. If peat is present, it is not overwhelming as the stratospheric rate of 258 ppm might suggest
    • Finish
      90 90
