- Bingo! And Edradour,
albeit the peaty version, that is really outstanding. Andrew, you know what to
do, sir. More Ballechin please!
Boy, what a delicious
nose! The peat translates into a slightly medicinal touch (think iodine), that
is content with a supporting role. The leading role is clearly reserved for
nuts and summer fruit. Think pineapple, oranges, Pink Lady, apricots on syrup.
Some ginger and liquorice and, do not laugh, whipped cream. If it can maintain
this complexity until the finish, we have a winner.
On the palate (which
is quite creamy) the peat takes the reigns again, making the smoke pretty big,
while underneath it is mostly apricots on syrup that rear their heads. Even
reminds me a bit of eggnog. Well spiced on cinnamon, ginger and liquorice.
The smoky and sweet
finish lasts wonderfully long.
