Nose: Full vanilla flavors with fruity lime, grapefruit, honey and sugar. The high salt content, combined with leathery aromas and rather passive peat smoke fits quite well into the picture. Sparkling fresh and tasty to bite!
Taste: Sweet, peaty and very smoky. Gooseberry, honeydew melon, green apple and hints of grapefruit make the malt stand on the palate. Caramel, cereals, some wood and notes of smoking ashes complete the taste.
Finish: Medium long - with dominating sweet citrus freshness and only weak spiciness. Dry wood and still fading with a strong peat content.
Note: For us the best bottling for the 200th anniversary!
90 points (nose: 90 / taste: 91 / finish: 89)
