      The first association - dust, mustiness, dirt, perceptible peat and a bit of smoke, great atmosphere. The whisky is not very volatile, the aroma has to be drawn into the nose, and yet the alcohol is not aggressive. In the background you can feel a bit of sweetness, cheesecake, raisins, even more honey, turmeric.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Quite peppery and spicy on the tongue, bitter chocolate, gingerbread and cocoa, mulled beer, cloves, ginger and cinnamon bark, rather not fruity, more spices and dryness, maybe a bit tart but not too much, smoke plays a secondary role this time.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Quite long, much less spicy than in taste, this time with a hint of bitterness, still accompanied by spices and gingerbread.

    Light but peaty. Smoked fruits, quince, figs, some wine notes.

  7. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    toasted, smoked, meaty, sweet, peppery
    fatty return, earthy peat and fish box with the spray deposited on it
    candied soaked fruits between tangerine, cherry, date
    stuffy:
    it continues with the toasted caramel, the more present peat, the peppery spices stand out even more
    the meaty side more than meaty there, wood soaked in sea spray and iodine from the nearby port.
    the alcohol shows its watts on the finish and is softened by this pack of maderized candied fruits, grapes, caramelized orange zest, date
    final:
    long for this young age, syrupy, on zan, dark chocolate, dark candied fruits, slightly ashy peat.

  11. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Amarena cherries, morello cherries, quetsches, iodized charcoal. It's quite deep. The peat mixes very pleasantly with all this. A very greasy and earthy peat. Roots, tubers. Steamed potatoes. Bewitching smoke. Prunes, cereals, dried fruits. On the palate, blackberries, currants, then spices, pepper, cumin. It is woody, a noble wood in wet weather. Muscadine grapes. Final rather long, powerful without being explosive. Licorice, Cherry lignite. Black tea.
