With the years the peat and smoke have taken a back seat and the fruit flavours are driving. Pear and golden delicious apple, melon and white grape. White bread and white pepper.
Same with the taste. I am not saying this is bad, it is not what I expected but I still like what it has to offer in parts. Some medicinal notes but not enough to spoil it. I don't mind medicinal notes if it is in the right balance. Too many and I'm out. I think the alc vol could have been a bit higher, say 46% .
Overall it is a pleasant enough without a doubt but I was expecting something special from this distillery.
The finish is a bit underwhelming, there is not much hanging about, everything fades rather quickly.
