    Bingo! And Edradour,
    albeit the peaty version, that is really outstanding. Andrew, you know what to
    do, sir. More Ballechin please!
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      The smoky and sweet
      finish lasts wonderfully long.
