    I confess that my expectations may have been a bit too
    low. Hence they were exceeded with flying colors. This is a feisty little
    animal. Young, surely, but very amusing and tasty. Reminded me, in a sense, of
    Caol Ila (and that is always good news).
    • Nose
      The nose is nice and oily with some sweetness in the
      shape of toffee and burnt malt with even hints of tropical fruit like pineapple
      and papaya. Something that makes me think of ice coffee. Summer hay and apples,
      as well. But the peat is quite prominent. It gives it a sour touch, but it
      works wonderfully. Citrus slowly shines through. Give it at least ten minutes
      and you will be amazed of the complexity of this nose. What a pleasant
      surprise!
    • Taste
      The attack is somewhat weak, but very tasty from the
      start. It starts a little less sweet than you would have expected after the
      nose and the peat also offers a rather big smokiness. Reminds me of a struck
      match. After the spices (which translates into ginger, cardamom and mostly
      vanilla and nutmeg), it becomes nicely sweet. Mostly malty hints and
      butterscotch. Midpalate the citrus reappears. Mint!
    • Finish
      The smoke fades very gently in the surprisingly long
      finish. It makes room for apples and vanilla. It dies a very sweet, albeit
      peppery, death with a touch of oak.
