    It was a bit solventy on the nose at first, so I added a teaspoon and a half to 50cl and left it sit for 15 minutes. On the nose, the solventy citrus notes fade and the malty spice notes become more apparent. The palate tumbles out quickly, so it takes a tad more focus to parse the flavors. With enough time the floral and fruit character of this one becomes quite powerful, too.  
    • Nose
      Salty citrus zest, a touch of white pepper, floral peat, malt, gingered spices, and butter with a hint of almond.
    • Taste
      Floral honey and bitter vanilla, banana, salted caramel, floral peat, malt, mixed dried fruit.
    • Finish
      Brown sugar and ginger, fades to bitter baking spices

    85/86. High quality for a 10YO. Seems softer than later versions, although it could be that the bottle has been open a bit longer.

      More peat. Apricot, mango, pepper, pineapple, orange, melon and vanilla.
