Superb complexity, with a real evolution between the nose and the mouth.
What a nose!
Some Rare Malts get us used to juices that are quite mouth-watering and this is not the case.
A brilliant and chiseled orange, with a crystalline peach juice, and a hint of tropical fruits.
Scone, accompanied by a small swig of salted butter, and drizzled with fir honey. Light meringue.
Light star anise and eucalyptus, mixed with lemon zest.
Very light peat and smoke.
On the palate, the fruit is less vibrant, and the profile is more tertiary and austere.
Star anise, light hay, orange zest, lemon.
Light rancio, very salty walnut oil. Old Sherry.
Motor oil, copper.
Smoke, herbaceous peat, pepper.
Blindfolded, I would have gone to Brora.
Finish on old Amontillado, on salted walnut, orange zest, motor oil, beeswax, dry hay.
Peat, smoke, eucalyptus and anise. Nice freshness.
