Nose: smoke, lemon, slightly bitter, salt, a bit of gum, mint, essential oils. 21P.
Palate: Much smoke and again a touch of gum, yeast, but also a decent spice and also a pleasant woodiness and caramel. Less citrus in the mouth than in the nose, which I like a lot. When chewing a pleasant saltiness is on. This has something of a walk by the sea, which licks the lips with salt. From the alcohol (even if smokers are difficult to assess) I would go to almost 50%. Fairly strong and the taste is pure. 23P.
Finish: Pleasantly woody, smoky with a touch of caramel. He reminds me a bit of my self-matured 'Craighouse' which I matured in a 6L ex-Oloroso. The powerful version of the Peat Beast was used here. The finish is reasonably long without burning. I do not have metallic youth, so I appreciate the malt older than 10 years. 22P.
Balance: Good malt, well balanced, coherent thing in cask strength with estimated 10-12 years age. 22P.
Conclusion: a good smoker! Could be a law - if I think of the Peats Beast (who is probably a law).
Otherwise, probably more of an Islay from a first fill bourbon? The caramel he has anyway and also the citrus fruits speak for ex-bourbon. But like I said, First Fill ...
Overall scarce 88 points - Cheers!
