We would have liked more power, but we can't blame it for its breadth and complexity.
The kind of malt I would like to drink in quantity :)
A little concern about the 40% reduction. Especially after 37 years in the bottle.
We start with a discreet fruitiness, which becomes more and more expressive with aeration.
Lemon, orange, and dried pineapple rings rolled in sugar.
Slight green apple and pear, probably brought down by OBE.
Light rosemary, white chocolate, white pepper.
Light dry oak and metallic side.
A delicate and subtle nose, which I would have liked more powerful as expected.
After half an hour in the glass, we have a subtle smoke that adds a nice complexity.
In the mouth, amusingly, it is the delicate peat that appears first, with a slight smoke.
The fruit comes very quickly then, with orange, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, papaya and passion fruit.
Light and precious oak, with pepper, and always a little rosemary.
There too light, but filling the mouth in a spectacular way.
Medium finish, on light peat, smoke, pepper, precious wood, a light dust.
Lemon and orange zest.
Light green apple skin.
