    taste like candy on candy-string at first, then peaty notes emerges, with little salty an a long remaining tasting. Very smooth whisky, little honey taste but not too much. Great price/taste combination.

    • Nose
      Smoke and peat, some salty, ash, rubber. Also some fruity through it, apples. Not very intense.
    • Taste
      Salmiak kick at the beginning, then liquorice and lakrisal. Pepper, peat, smoke, ash and tobacco. Caramel too. And later also some orange.
    • Finish
      Light peppers still, salmiak, lakrisal, liquorice. Not very long, later in the end it gets a bit longer, more caramel comes through.

    On the nose: salt, peat, salt. It's simple, straightforward, straight to the point. Well, that's not all, there is also ash, iodine, smoke, damp earth, bousin. The grass wet after the rain. It's slightly medicinal.
    In the mouth, the coarse salt binds to soft caramel, anise, some spices. The finish is quite peppery, always salty, still spicy. The salty caramel shade remains evanescent in the mouth, but for a short time.
    The lack of complexity is offset by the power of coarse salt. It was necessary to dare such simplicity. In my opinion it is peaty Bunnahabhain.
