In the nose I first had to think of Kilchoman. There was something in the smoky note that evoked Rockside Farm. On the tongue I was then first at Ardbeg 10 - this smoke, this lemon ... back out I was then in a big peat ...
I like it a lot. I would say he comes from Islay, has 46%, is mostly matured in bourbon barrels, is 10 years old.
Cold and spicy smoke, which initially stands like a curtain before other flavors. Then come lemon zest, grapefruit and tangerine juice. Spices in small doses: black pepper, thyme, rosemary. The smoke is retained for a long time. Something bitter honey pushes in, the lemon becomes even clearer and connects to the smoky note.
Pleasant and gentle on the tongue, with clear peat smoke and smoked lemon slices. In addition, properly hot tar paper and phenol, salt herring and marine diesel. The smoke is spicy and cooling. Marjoram, thyme, rosemary on the tongue, mild oak. Some almond paste. Now also orange zest. Becomes slightly dry, but keeps its nicely smoky initial character.
Still very smoky. Slightly dry, lemony. Milk chocolate now dresses the mouth as far as the peat smoke allows.
