      Peat, orange and vanilla sugar. Also clearly (too) young with fig liquor and malt. Water adds apple.
    • Taste

      Peat, vanilla cake, apple and pepper.

    Oops, he gets great grades, for me something unjustified wise. Well, the price (currently with € 33.80 noted) is a bit more gracious, but much more worth this bottle in my opinion is not.
    • Nose
      My first impression: He is still very young, without me having seen anything other than the 2004 vintage on the etiquette of the sample. Mint, chewing gum, salt, peat in the direction of gauze bandage.
    • Taste
      levitating, do not bring me much here.
    • Finish
      And then comes the whole force of salt, exotic woods, underpinned by phenolic smokiness. But not exactly of extreme sustainability.

    Drank this at a Whiskybase Tasting in Hotel Zee en Duin in Katwijk ZH and purchased 12 bottles right away. Sad to say only 5 are left now.

    Tasted during the whiskybase/shop nosing and tasting on last monday-evening(30/01/12). A real stunner! The nose is creamy, light medicinal, very lightly peated and dilicious floury!The taste is even better and is rather creamy, floury(read pretty floury!) as well as perfectly balanced with fruits!!The finish is medium long(in my opinion), but very nice. An intriguing dram!!

    Today, 23-02-2013 tasted again - neat - and just great, indeed a great stunner!!!

    Already a great peated whisky, and if price comes into the equation, an absolute winner!
    • Nose
      smoked & air dried ham/prosciutto (schwarzwaelder schinken) and lots of it, a slight green/plant-y/peeled-twig-wood note underneath all that smoke, also some mineral/stone-y notes and oak-y vanilla (85)
    • Taste
      peat and an oily sweetness, nice attack although it doesn't feel like +60%. camphor, some tea notes (black & lapsang ), honey, (88)
    • Finish
      nicely fading out with a nice warmth, more smoke, here the mineral notes come through as well with some granite/stones, also some hay, shortbread, also a tiny fruity note at the back (raspberry jelly maybe ?) (86)
