      Very light aroma of peat smoke on the nose. Not grassy, more floral. Pleasantly dry whisky thanks to Sauterne barrel aging. Medium-long finish.

    on the brandy, fruity, floral and grassy peat
    on moist wood, humus, a little butter and young sherry in return, a little maderized, the smoke then

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The nose is much more interesting than the non-peated version.
    The peat is earthy, evokes a bit of bacon and combines in the most beautiful way grain notes of the distillate, which, on the nose, even evoke bread!
    Is a bit of sulfur in the mouth. Not very explosive, a bit simple.

    Enthusiasm 4/5 on the nose, 3/5 for the rest.

    Whisky n ° 1968

  4. Woodsmoke scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fruity, oak, a little spice. Is getting sweeter and a little bit harsh.
    • Taste
      Fruit clearly there, slight sharpness disappears and the oak comes before. Some popcorn on top, paired with wheat.
    • Finish
      Herb, medium long with good oak

  5. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    return more wooded after opening, peat always very present .. succinctly, lacquered fruits, more depth!
    • Nose
      fruity, grassy, ​​floral and peaty
      peach, cooked pear and a little lemon and mandarin, return of mirabelle plums.
      very fresh, woody and pleasant, earthy peat.
    • Taste
      young sensation on the palate, and great freshness plus stubborn perfumes.

  6. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    singularity as to the aromas that denote basic tastes whiskys, but disappointment with the search for peat!
    • Nose
      fruit (raspberry, fresh cherry!), a little smoke, vinous return!
    • Taste
      fresh yellow fruits (quetsches, then raspberry again and pear in brandy!) a little maderized, a little spice, wood.
    • Finish
      dry wood, tannin, fruits in the same vein, but withered omnipresent.Final rather short and austere.
