Peat smoke, fruity (apples, pears), toffee, nutty
Creamy, vanilla, honey, nutty, spicy
Long, sweet, smoky
Ha, a wonderful
profile that reminds me more of Ardbeg than Bunna. It wears water like Prada
(say what?). Oh, lest I forget, the only place where you will find these Anam
na h-Alba bottlings is at Dram 242. Dirk Verleysen is (at this moment) the sole
distributor in Belgium.
Despite the high ABV,
the nose is very soft. The peat willingly moves over to allow the fruit the
footlight. Lime, apple and pear. Some toffee, nougat with hazelnuts and vanilla
accompany the fruit. Some elements like wet earth, light ashes, butane gas and
a hint of olive oil. A smile spreads across my face.
It is creamy, very
creamy. But what a powerful attack. Phew! All kinds of spices set your mouth
aflame. The peat now kicks the fruit off stage and enters the spotlight like a
real diva. Carefully the sweet notes return from backstage. Quite some ashes
and even tar. Adding water hardly changes the profile, which is a big plus in
this case. More bang for your buck!
The finish is long,
sweet and smoky.
