White wine
Nose

De la fumée, une légère tourbe sèche. Pas mal de malt sucré, et de la vanille mielleuse.

Taste

De la fumée épicée, du malt vanillé, du raisin. Du jus de mirabelle par-dessus.

Finish

Les épices se font plus douces. La fumée devient citronnée, presque acidulée.

Comments

Avec sa légère fumée tourbée et sa vanille omniprésente, il me fait penser au 12 ans officiel. Même si son côté malté / vanillé le rajeunit par rapport à son âge réel, le mélange doux / tourbe légère fonctionne bien. Un tourbé accessible et facile.

Taste like the original 12 year old minus the sherry influence. Needs more years in the cask in think, feels very young.
