I know the minimalist style of the bottlenecks of Specialty Drinks, and I like it a lot! But when you choose to abandon the concept of chemical symbols to swing "Peat", I find it hyper reductive. So much to write: "Hey, guys, come on! Islay, it's not peat? What distilleries? We do not care, we've mixed big peat that stretches all over the island and we're going to rip you off curling the 60 ° ". I was not there at the marketing meeting, but find out why, that's what I imagined. So I had a pretty bad a priori on this keel. On the nose, peat very frank, half gourmet (meaty) and mineral (pebbles). Later, sweet malt. With water, more creamy, milk chocolate limit. On the palate, lively and powerful, but very good alcoholic integration. Then yellow fruits. Thick texture. Sweet and spicy after the first sip. With water, the beast is a little tamed, but the fruitiness persists, with an oily texture, almost viscous. Finishing, unctuous even, long and saline. Well it was actually! A super blended malt that makes appeal product for the rest of the range of these Islay single malts bottled cask strength.
