Color
Old gold
Nose

Peat smoke, deli meat, smoked salty ham, iodine, citrus, i think it's lemon juice and white sugar.

Taste

Full-bodied, great texture. The peat is not as strong as suggested from the nose. Oak wood, vanilla, pepper corns and soil.

Finish

The finish is long and substantial with sweet smoky barbecued meat and cracked black pepper.

Comments

A great expression of a young NAS whisky.

(Rating interval 85-88)

Color
Old gold
Nose

Rich heavy nose with a vague floral touch.

Taste

Smooth for the strength. Creamy with an ashy dryness. Smoky.

Finish

Toffeish with a spicy burst. Smoke lingers.

Comments

Expansive and complex.

Was aged for five years before being finished in a quarter cask for seven months, the size of the cask is quite small, thus does not require such a long maturation.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Très doux, sur le bois,  la vanille, la fumée, le caramel. C'est très gras,un mélange de crème et d'herbes. 

Taste

Crème, tourbe, caramel, plantes et de bois. C'est jeune et çà se sent. 

Finish

Un peu sèche, végétale, toujours de la tourbe et du bois. 

Comments

C'est jeune et çà se sent.  En dessous du Laphroaig PX mais cela reste un excellent rapport qualité prix.
