    Balance: ( 24/25) I first thought I had to mark it down for being slightly simple even though well put together, then I need to remind myself that this is bottled at 61.6% abv, of which is really does not show.  I have had more potent (in overwhelming alcohol) 46% abv bottles.  

    Incredible dram, interesting view of speyside peat.  Though really not sure where all the salt comes from.
    • Nose
      ( 21/25) Pine resin, cabbage, honey and malt. Some nice light fruit aromas, think pears, and fresh cherries.
    • Taste
      ( 23/ 25) Nice salty peat, with honey and salted caramel.  Not smoky, but there's definitely peat there.  Mostly peat, honey, and salt, with a touch of pear.
    • Finish
      ( 22/25) The salt and peat shines through and is incredibly persistent, with it getting saltier as the long finish progresses.
