      Soft and balanced balanced peat. Has a fruity sweetness, perhaps a bit of peach. A hint of ginger bread. Salty.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Initially feels slightly thin, but has a steady development to a warm, mouthfilling peat. Before the peat envelops your taste buds, the fruitiness is carried over from the nose.

      Medium length. The fullness of the peat comes down almost abruptly, after having reached its climax. An ashy taste is left behind.

    Not bad. You can also somehow recognize the maturation in the first and refill cask. Although I prefer a somewhat harder pace with such young Islay Malts. Somehow I miss the punch here. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/08/26/chapter-7-outturn-tasting/

    • Nose
      again very mature at 8 yo, the first fill was a good move. foam bananas & pink shrimp candy, smoked lavender, nice sweet side.
    • Taste
      bit of apricot yoghurt, lavender again, gentle smoke almost towards carbolic soap, lemony tonic water
