    There is certainly too much hype here. Most ratings here are very high, kind of strange for being the first review.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Very clean and citrusy peat here, banana cream, distillate drive, a dirty old leather shop, a touch of overripe pineapple here, very balanced peater, good.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Big, extremely salty and intense, seashells, oysters, some old phenolic characters, residue from a petrol tank, amazingly fresh and balanced, some rich leather, banana and mint cream, some herb medicine, turning a bit bitter at the end.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, oily, burned popcorn, some bitter oak, very spicy.
