    A real puzzle.  Very complex.  It’s hard to grasp any particular flavor that takes the lead.  There is so much going on in this malt!  I could definitely taste the high level of quality and craftsmanship that went into this whisky.  I also noticed a few very small black flakes of barrel char in the bottle.  This malt has no color added and is not chill-filtered.  These tasting notes were made after adding two teaspoons of water to the dram and letting it sit for about ten minutes.  This really brought out more aromas, and tamed the alcohol burn, although it was still present (92 proof).
    • Nose
      Sour fruit, vanilla, lemon meringue, salted nuts, nutmeg, lilac, banana, melted caramel, and peat.
    • Taste
      Salted nuts, dried sour fruits (sour apple), oily and wet mossy peat.
    • Finish
      Doesn’t linger.  Sour fruits (apple/pear), salted nuts, peat without smoke.

    An excellent 10.  One of the best.
    • Nose
      Big and oaky.  Hints of brine and peat.  Fruity, but earthy. Mulitgrain bread.
    • Taste
      Sweet.  Dried apricots, then cereal grains.  Nutty with smoky peat undercurrents.  Sharp and crisp.
    • Finish
      Medium long and spicy.  Coastal, salty and dry.
