Thick, fat and earthy, with beautiful farmy notes from horse stables, leather saddles and smoky peat aromas. The rather subtle fruit note can be described here as sweetish green (figs, grapefruit, lime, avocado). Plus vanilla and leather again - put together in perfect harmony - absolutely great!
Spicy, peppery, spicy and ... unfortunately slightly out of round! With lime and herbal-minty-fresh accents that almost completely overlay the peaty Islay notes. Wood and a fine, but slightly irritating bitterness to the finish - overall impression not bad, but ...
Very long - slightly bitter, dry and sharp. Now the peat unfolds better again and the harmony is slowly reconciling.
After a very brilliant nose, at a high level, a little disappointing!
