is very productive, intensive and error-free.
is super clear but also quite one-dimensional.
I had a good time in the last week and every day off and with friends many old Ardbegs, Lagas, Bowmore ... around the clock in the glass 1960/70/80 .. - if I give 87-98 points - have to I also align my rating here. Just compare - 94 points in 2021 with 94 in 2003 :)
Cinnamon and sugar crust, bright yellow fruit, gauze bandage with sea salt, the coastal breeze in the nose is very thick and oily and intense even with a minor dram. In addition, there is some mineral dust and used motor oil, gradually melon, ground citrus drops, fresh zest of lime, subtle influence of flowers - the peat has a more direct effect - not foggy, not floral, not crystalline - atypical in its age, has a clear effect on the spot younger.
the citrus notes start to run in the mouth to completely change in the finish and become sweeter, good ashy, nice texture, a lot of birch water / tree sap which makes it silky syrupy.
On the one hand, I find it very one-dimensional, on the other hand it can do it pretty well.
New are a lot of liquorice and sugared lemon, quite intense and warm
