The "Rock Oyster 18" with very similar key data - albeit a lower age - could still be bought for half the price a few years ago.
I would rather go with the Bowmore Vault Edition No. Guess 1, he delivers something similar (and also maritime salty), with a lot of boom and more fruit for less money.
Citrus, ashy smoke, sea spray and some cucumber water. Surprisingly flowery with more standing time, and now the wood comes through too. Harmonious and coherent, but also relatively reserved. The 22 years are not immediately obvious.
Juicy-sweet entry, then more acidity (the Tobermory part?) and more and more spice and peat smoke - and indeed at the very end a slightly exotic fruitiness (which remains really vague), as if Bowmore were involved . The not exactly exuberant smoke content could also indicate this. Super mild, nothing burns, and the texture is still nice and handy. However, it lacks some assertiveness due to the mild alcohol content.
In the aftertaste, I imagine I detect some of the heather and honey notes that are typical of Highland Park. Resonates for a long time, with dry ash / charcoal, residual sweetness, citrus and salt - but also with hints of floral water and a slightly soapy touch.
