    Tasty whiskey, but too expensive.

    Tasted on January 13, 2017. Had expected to be blown away by a hurricane of peat. If I had blindly tasted him I would certainly not have given him the qualification peated. Prima whiskey, but not so distinctive and too expensive.
    • Nose
      Aroma is not very strong. Raspberry, pink. Deep underneath dark purple cherry, citrus and some peat, but less than the "peated" variant suggests.
    • Taste
      Not very impressed. It all stays pretty flat, I think. Soft mouth feel , which becomes drier from oily speed. Taste red fruit: cherry, plum, raspberry; if he does, he pulls something bitter.
    • Finish
      Quite short. Burns some after. Dry.

    Impressive... I mean, what more can you say of an ultra young whiskey that performs like this?
    • Nose
      Wow, this is reminiscent of a more delicate Lagavulin 8 Year Old, which I find a big, big compliment. Soft fruity notes like banana and peaches, but also vanilla and marzipan, accompanied by a lovely brine-y quality. The smoke is very delicate. Really, really good.
    • Taste
      Lovely, raw, naked spirit. Subtle fruits and soft peat. Colour me impressed. Banana is again at the forefront, but now more candy-esque. Some lemon rasp too. At bit of ash and some salt even. Balanced.
    • Finish
      Lemon and ashes. Long.
