This has more fruit than the 58.7% 1972 but less power and slightly less depth of profile overall.
I left this in the glass for 10 minutes or so and the fruit notes have definitely increased.
I think this one will be less smoky and more fruity than the 58.7% version.
Again a bag of wine gums, orange, lemon, a little fresh pineapple but the salt, smoke and peat are in the background but unlike the 58.7% this is not a farmyard one on the nose, the fruit is the dominant factor here with a little white pepper thrown in.
Bags of really zesty fruit, oh hang on, here it comes an avalanche of peat is approaching, or it it?
A wave of peat hits your tongue but then is disappears leaving the fruit and a pepper note.
There is a battle royal going on between the sumptuous fruit and the peat/pepper, I am almost drooling, just excellent.
Over time the fruit wins by a whisker
Long, peppery, moreish with a fruit blast in the tail
