    Decent peaty backbone. Pleasant, though lacks the depth and complexity of an Ardbeg 10.
    • Nose
      84 84
      First whiff of taggiasche olives and a light peat of golden Virginia tobacco. Followed by sweeter notes of freshly baked shortbread. Grains of cereal, and a hint of brighter notes (green apples) after a while.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Much more peat on the palate, more like Kentucky tobacco (Toscanelli cigars). Light hints of sulphur, especially in the finish.

    find this standard very tasty and tasty.
    Nice smoke and citrus notes. some campfire and slightly sweet and nutty.
    Sure it's not particularly complex, but I like it quite a lot.
    One of the best young smoky standards I've had in my glass so far

    Room temperature when drinking: 18 ℃

    Viewing Eyes: light straw color

    Smell Nose: The smoked bacon fried in oil is very charming, a little sterilized water, vanilla ice cream, cream & frozen butter blocks, green apple, the sweet fragrance of green mango in a flash, fruit jelly, Masanori race, quite For a stretched oily feel, grapefruit peel, acetic acid, a little bit of fermented sourness

    Taste Palate: fresh and soft, it is finally not a sharp air freshener, it is rare. Green apple, green tea, lemonade, citron tea, not too sweet, milky, a little lime, raw bacon, rock

    Finish: Finish, medium length, green apple juice, white toast, a little sea water and reef, honey, bacon, honey barbecue

    Body: Medium, oily, smooth, no bitter bottom, no tannin, and a certain viscosity

    Nose: 85/100

    Palate: 85/100

    Finish: 86/100

    Body: 85/100

    Overall: 84/100

    Overall: Uncomfortable complexity and roundness, but it's delicious. It turned out that the Bourbon Barrel also excited me.
