    I like it, but I miss some more influence of the cask.
    • Nose
      Lots of peat, with a medical note, sweet, some citrus
    • Taste
      Peat again, but also getting very sweet. Baked peaches
    • Finish
      Long, Longer, Ardbeg. Just incredible. Some cinnamon?! Dominant peat. Bitter notes like anis

    • Nose
      Intense smoky, fruity aromas with a clear presence of barley, lemon, lime and dark chocolate which overflow into scents of smoked fish, crispy bacon with baked pineapple and pear juice. Complex but beautifully balanced
    • Taste
      A taste explosion of barley and malt with lime and lemon in the lead role that complemented by including cinnamon, banana and blueberries. Subtle transition to a more warm and smoky taste of roasted marshmallows, licorice and tar. Truly a delight for the senses.
    • Finish
      Very long and smoky aftertaste of tar, anise, toasted almonds and hints of soft barley and toffee

    Not as good as the older versions (less lemony, more peat) but I still love it a lot.
    • Nose
      Mellow, dominated by peat and some fresh lemon zest at first nosing. Vanilla, creosote, and a little medicinal. Notes of pineapples are coming up. A lovely nose.
    • Taste
      Smooth and dry with notes of creosote and camphor at first mouthfeel. Peat and cold ashes. There is almost no fruityness on the palate at all.
    • Finish
      Very long, dominated by dry peaty aromas.
      Next day the empty glass still had a strong peaty smell.

    Simply a great Dram!
