Aroma: very fresh, sea, soot, burnt fire, notes of the barn yard, dry boards, vanilla, bun with sprinkling; later, oily rags, bandages, lemon peel, flowers like lilac, green apple, hints of anise.
Taste: bitter-sweet, with spices, smoked fatty fish, cloves, black pepper, anise, citrus peel, chalk, salt, burnt wood.
Finish: mineral-salty, chalk, highly mineralized mineral water, salt, smoked products, activated charcoal, wood tannins; longer than average, slowly fading, ash with salt remains on the tongue for a long time.
The result: an elegant, combed Lafroyg, as compared with the base 10, quite a bit of familiar medicine, but with an abundance of wood, spices and freshness. Heirloom traits in the form of some agricultural motifs mixed with smoke (I feel them that way) are, of course, guessed, but the usual smoky pressure goes not in the first plan, but as if integrated with other components. In general, a pleasant smoky whisky with excellent balance, when you want a brutal Ayla, of course, the hand will reach for his younger brother, but when you want something calmer and more balanced - 18 years old is a great option!
