The price is too salty, but to be sure it's a very different affair from any common malt, which I respect very much.
Tasted with Glen Gariochs 25yo 1990 SV cask 2752 (90 pts.), 25yo 1990 DL XOP cask 10989 (88) and 24yo 1989 BB cask 7854 (85).
Grass blades and old wardrobes. The oak is subtle but perfect for me. Fresh dill, paraffin. The odd man out in the lineup (see comments), but the nose leads one to expect a lot.
Oddly vegetal, yet savoury. Grasses and roots, soft, oily peat, cucumber and vanilla ice cream. The attack is truly a bit odd, but it settles down marvelously, although there is this feeling of a cask being bottled at the last moment... With water it gets more cereal, but juicier than DL XOP cask 10898 next to it, which is all about the cereal. Really, what's with all the vegetable isle notes? Turnips, carrots and all.
The vanilla stays the longest, with a tail of old oak and some pineapple. Were the finish more focused, and perhaps without that surprising potato peel note, I'd easily score it higher. There's very little more to be found with water seeing that the bottling strength is already quite low.
