N: Noticeably more mineral-led/more contemporary in style than the 21yo, whilst tempting us with its well-loved bourbon-light fruity honeyed buttery-earthy dunnage style.
T: Certainly a more contemporary coastal style with beautiful underlying barley spirit. Top notes talk of a fizzy sweetness, a sugary sweetness, salty sizzle-y lemons and oysters.
F: Sweet fresh and salty, the abv strength carrying this one far and wide. Easily the smokiest of the lot yet it’s no smoke bomb compared to uber-smoke-driven contemporary malts from in the last decade. Super form.
C: One that stylistically treads the line between then & now. Right up there with the stalwart standard 10yo.
