The abv isn’t written on the label, but this one’s been analysed by the distillery itself, and it is 39.8%. Nose: light and delicate, with lots of sea air and bandages, but almost no peat or smoke. Perhaps the peat has just vanished? Lots of leather, vanilla, grilled nuts, old walnuts… Tons of ‘secondary’ aromas. How complex! Some great passion fruit and kiwi too. Mouth: paraffin, water, dust, old turpentine, cold tea and very old sweet wine… Don’t get me wrong, it’s great, much more than just a curiosity! Medium long finish. A rating? Organoleptically: 86 points, but emotionally, certainly 99 or 100 points.The oldest malt I ever had. Champagne!
