- Decent peaty backbone. Pleasant, though lacks the depth and complexity of an Ardbeg 10.
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.
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
Overall: Uncomfortable complexity and roundness, but it's delicious. It turned out that the Bourbon Barrel also excited me.
- Nice man
